     Data represented as points, lines, and polygons are of what type of data?

    • A.

      Continuous data

    • B.

      Feature data

    • C.

      Image data

    • D.

      Raster data

    Correct Answer
    B. Feature data
    Explanation
    Feature data refers to data that represents real-world objects or features such as roads, buildings, or rivers. This type of data is typically represented as points, lines, and polygons, which can be used to depict the location, shape, and attributes of these features. Unlike continuous data, which represents measurements that can take on any value within a range, feature data is discrete and represents specific objects or entities in the real world. Therefore, the correct answer is feature data.

     How would data that lists the name, address and phone number of one restaurant in your county appear in an ArcGIS attribute table?

    • A.

      Column

    • B.

      Field

    • C.

      Menu

    • D.

      Row

    Correct Answer
    D. Row
    Explanation
    In an ArcGIS attribute table, the data that lists the name, address, and phone number of one restaurant in your county would appear in a row. Each row in an attribute table represents a single feature or object, in this case, the restaurant. The columns or fields in the attribute table would contain the specific information for each restaurant, such as the name, address, and phone number. Therefore, the correct answer is "Row" as it represents the individual entry for the restaurant in the attribute table.

     The process of reducing the amount of detail in a layer by removing boundaries of areas with the same attribute value is called

    • A.

      Clipping features

    • B.

      Dissolving features

    • C.

      Inputting features

    • D.

      Resulting features

    Correct Answer
    B. Dissolving features
    Explanation
    Dissolving features is the process of reducing the amount of detail in a layer by removing boundaries of areas with the same attribute value. This means that areas with the same attribute value are merged together, resulting in a simplified representation of the data. Clipping features, inputting features, and resulting features are not related to the process of reducing detail in a layer.

    • D.

      Resulting features

    Correct Answer
    A. Clipping features
    Explanation
    The process of cropping the extent of one layer to the extent of another layer is called "clipping features." This involves using the boundaries of one layer to define the extent of another layer, resulting in a new layer that only includes the features within the clipped area. This can be useful for isolating specific geographic areas or for creating more focused maps or analyses.

    • C.

      Clip

    • D.

      Dissolve

    Correct Answer
    A. Buffer
    Explanation
    A buffer is an area that is drawn at a uniform distance around a feature. It is used to create a zone or boundary around a specific location or feature. This can be useful in various applications such as spatial analysis, where the buffer zone can be used to analyze proximity or accessibility to certain features or to define areas of influence. The buffer can be created by specifying a distance or size around the feature, and all points within that distance are included in the buffer zone.

    • D.

      Georeferencing

    Correct Answer
    C. Heads-up digitizing
    Explanation
    Heads-up digitizing refers to the process of using computer drawing tools to draw feature data using remotely sensed image data. This technique allows the user to directly trace or digitize features on the computer screen, aligning them with the image data. It is called "heads-up" because the user is working directly on the screen, rather than using a separate digitizing tablet or other device. This method is commonly used in GIS (Geographic Information System) applications to create accurate and detailed feature data from satellite or aerial imagery.

    • C.

      Geocoding

    • D.

      Georeferencing

    Correct Answer
    C. Geocoding
    Explanation
    Geocoding is the process of converting addresses into geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) that can be used to create map features. This involves matching the address information from a table with a spatial database or mapping service to determine the corresponding location on a map. Geocoding is essential for accurately displaying and analyzing address-based data on a map.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

     What must be created in ArcCatalog to perform geocoding?

    • A.

      Address table

    • B.

    • C.

      New shapefile

    • D.

      Reference table

    Correct Answer
    B. Geocoding service
    Explanation
    To perform geocoding in ArcCatalog, a geocoding service must be created. A geocoding service allows for the conversion of addresses into geographic coordinates, which can then be used for mapping and analysis purposes. This service can be created by configuring and publishing a geocoding service using ArcGIS Server or by using a pre-existing geocoding service provided by a third-party provider.

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer
    A. Display X,Y Data
    Explanation
    To display data from a table of longitude/latitude coordinates in ArcMap, the option that must be used is "Display X,Y Data". This option allows the user to import a table with coordinates and specify which columns contain the longitude and latitude values. ArcMap then plots the points on the map based on these coordinates, allowing the user to visualize and analyze the data spatially.

     The process of aligning an image to another image or feature data layer is called

    • A.

      Addressing

    • B.

      Blocking

    • C.

      Geocoding

    • D.

      Georeferencing

    Correct Answer
    D. Georeferencing
    Explanation
    Georeferencing is the correct answer because it refers to the process of aligning an image to another image or feature data layer. This process involves assigning spatial coordinates to the image so that it can be accurately placed on a map or in a geographic coordinate system. Georeferencing is commonly used in GIS (Geographic Information System) to overlay different layers of data and ensure they are correctly aligned for analysis and visualization purposes.

    Rate this question:

  • 36. 

     The default classification method ArcMap uses to automatically group data values is 

    • A.

      Natural Breaks

    • B.
