6: Analyzing Data in the Geodata Repository

Once a spatial data layer is added to ArcView or ArcGIS, you have the ability to analyze it using any tools.

Note that some of ArcView's analytical capabilities are not available when the file is located in the Geodata Repository. These tools include:

1. Zoom to selected.
2. Table Join.
3. Table Sort Ascending or Descending.
4. Table Editing.

In order to perform these operations you will need to download the spatial database files to your local machine.
