5: Adding Geodata to ArcView or ArcGIS
Once you perform a search using either the Basic
Search or Advanced
interface the results of your search can be added
to ArcView or ArcGIS.
To add a layer to ArcView or ArcGIS you first need
to perform a search. Use the Basic
interface to find the layers you are interested.
In the results dialog select
the layer you would like to add to you view. Press
the add selected layer button and your layer will
be added to the view.
The search results dialog will remain active on your
screen, so it may be hard to determine if the layer
has been added. Move the results dialog to the side
and you will see your layer has been added to the
view. The data may add slowly. In ArcGIS, if you
move the results dialog, the drawing will stop. Click
the layer's checkbox off and on; then it will re-draw.
Once the data is added to your view you can analyze
the data using ArcView or ArcGIS tools.
