Notable Industrial Engineers

  • Frank Bunker Gilbreth >

    A mechanical engineer and an early member of the ASME, Frank Gilbreth is considered by many to be the Father of Management Engineering. Born in Fairfield, ME, on July 7, 1868, Gilbreth broke into the construction industry as a bricklayer shortly after his high school graduation. In the course of his work, Gilbreth observed that each bricklayer approached his job differently, some seemingly more efficient than others. He then began analyzing their motions to determine Read More

Identify and Find Tools

When you want to view attribute values for a feature, use the Identify tool that can be accessed from the Tools toolbar.

When you click on a feature with the Identify tool, the Identify window will list the feature(s) at the identify location. You can click a feature in the feature list and see its attributes in the bottom panel. You can also right-click a feature to navigate to it, select it for other operations, define hyperlinks for it, and so on.

Creating Bookmarks

A spatial bookmark identifies a particular geographic location that you want to save and reference later. For example, you might create a spatial bookmark that identifies a study area. As you pan and zoom around your map, you can easily return to the study area by accessing the bookmark. You can also use spatial bookmarks to highlight areas on your map you want others to see.

The Measure tool lets you measure lines and areas on the map. You can use this tool to draw a line or polygon on the map and get its length or area, or you can click directly on a feature and get measurement information.

Magnifier, Viewer and Overview Windows

ArcMap provides three additional map windows to view the spatial data on your map: a Magnifier window, a Viewer window, and an Overview window. When you don't want to adjust your map display but want to see more detail, retain a particular view of an area, or get an overview of an area, open another window.

All these windows operate with Data view and not in the Layout view. You can also simultaneously open more than one of these windows.


In this tutorial you will learn how to work with Magnifier, Viewer and Overview windows.

Navigating Around The Map

In ArcMap 10 You can explore a map in several ways. The Tools toolbar contains frequently used tools that let you navigate around the map, find features, and get information about them. The Tools toolbar contains eight buttons that provide zooming functions and allow you to define a custom view of the layer data.
In this tutorial, you will get to know some of the most useful ones:

  • Zoom In/Out
  • Pan
  • Fixed Zoom In/Out
  • Full Extent
  • Zoom to Previous/Next extent

Working with Map Layers

A layer serves as a shortcut to data. It also tells ArcMap how the data should be drawn. You can store layers in a place that is accessible to everyone in your organization who needs a particular set of data; the data will be displayed the same way for each of them.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to:

  • change layer color
  • change layer symbol
  • change display order
  • show and hide layer

Saving and Opening files

There are a couple of ways that you can save files/project so that you can re-use them later. The first option is to simply save the ArcMap document (an .mxd file.). Before saving your map, you ought to think a little about your folder structure.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to first save the map/project in .mxd file, then how to open an existing file.

Adding Data

ArcMap10 can work and contain many layers of data. It can import a wide variety of GIS data types, including feature classes from a geodatabase, shapefiles, layer files, rasters (images), and CAD files, to name only a few. Often, GIS data obtained from public sources will already be in one of these formats.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to add data to a GIS project to help you start creating your own map projects.

Knowing the user interface

ArcMap lets you create and interact with maps. In ArcMap, you can:

  • view, edit, and analyze your geographic data.
  • query your spatial data to find and understand relationships among geographic features.
  • symbolize your data in a wide variety of ways.
  • create charts and reports to communicate your understanding with others.
  • lay out your maps in a what-you-see-is-what-youget layout view.
  • create maps that integrate data in a wide variety of formats including shapefiles, coverages, tables, computer-aided drafting (CAD) drawings, images, grids, and triangulated irregular networks (TINs).

In this tutorial, you will get to know the user interface of ArcMap 10 and be familiar with its different window parts and functions.
