Updating angle values
The Populate Angle tool allows you to interactively calculate the angle values for features that have Angle of Orientation (AOO), Direction of Flow (DOF), or Feature Element Orientation (FEO) attributes. The features affected by this tool do not necessarily have these attributes populated.
The Populate Angle tool populates the angle fields with the same value, as appropriate.
- Start ArcMap.
- If necessary, load data in the map.
- On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Production Editing.
- On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Defense Mapping.
Click the Production Start Editing button on the Production Editing toolbar.
The Manage Features and Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes windows automatically appear when you start an edit session using the Production Start Editing tool.Tip:
If the Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes window does not appear when you start an edit session, click the Show/Hide Attributes button on the Manage Features window.
- Select features in the map.
Click the Populate Angle button on the Defense Mapping toolbar.
If several features have been selected, the map display automatically zooms to the features.
Click once to create a starting point for the angle, then drag the mouse pointer to a second point to define the direction of the angle.
If more than one feature has been selected, repeat as necessary.
When you have updated angles for all the selected features, a message box appears that tells you how many angles have been updated.
- Click OK.
