Did You Know Stratus Lets You Edit Forestry GIS Data Without the Need for Complex GIS Desktop Software
Did you know that Stratus lets you edit forestry GIS data without the need for complex GIS desktop software? By using Stratus, you will not have to rely on old, clunky GIS desktop software to edit your GIS data.
That is because editing GIS data such as stands and activities is simpler in Stratus than in any other desktop solution that is difficult to use or hard to maintain.
In today’s video, I am going to show three in-application edits in Stratus that are really simple to do and can save your team some time.
1: Create and edit your stands:
The first thing to do in Spatial Edit Studio is click on Create New Feature.
Click on the map and drag the mouse based on the need of your feature.
The next step is to fill in the required information, such as name, slope, scaling method, etc. Hit save, commit edits, and you have a new stand. Creating a new stand was never so effortless.
2: Create Islands:
Now, in this second example, I will show you how to create an Island. This topological editing allows users to create a new polygon inside an existing polygon.
The first thing you need to do is to click on the Editing Tool button. Select the island tool. Here, you will have two follow steps. The first is to select the polygon of your choice, and then you can draw an island inside the polygon.
Click on the Create Island button, edit your attributes and hit save. Now, you have a new island created within seconds.
3: Merge Two Stands:
The next is merging two stands into one. Usually in GIS, we use Merge when two or more polygons show the same function, and this is important because we need our data to be clean and easy to read.
For merging two polygons, click on the merge tool from the Editing Tool button. Select the parent polygon, select the polygon to merge.
The next step is editing the attributes. Hit save. Click on Apply Edits. If you are okay with your results, click on Commit, and you are off to the races.
