Redlands, California- Editing and updating data in a spatial database can often be time-consuming. This month's ESRI live training seminar will offer several tips and tricks that will help ArcGIS Desktop software users save time when they edit data in a topology and work with labels, annotation, and tables in the ArcMap application.

Editing in ArcGIS 9: Tips and Tricks III will air November 20, 2008, at www.esri.com/lts. Attendees can tune in to the free seminar at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. (Pacific standard time).

The success and productivity of a geographic information system (GIS) depends on building and maintaining a high-quality spatial database. ArcGIS Desktop software includes a wide variety of tools and commands to edit, manipulate, and create spatial data.

During the seminar, the presenters will discuss and demonstrate tools and techniques that will be useful when working with topology, labels, and annotation. Attendees will learn tips about
