Tips and Tricks for Using ArcGIS 8.3

This resource was developed from ideas gathered from ESRI software training instructors in Redlands, California and at ESRI regional offices. Its intended audience is educators and their students.

The items listed in the attached document are grouped into several categories (ArcCatalog, ArcMap, ArcSDE, Rasters, Scripts & Codes, Internationalization, and ArcGIS 9.0) and are not ranked in any order of importance. It is also assumed that the user has a basic understanding of ArcGIS 8.x as each tip does not specifically explain each process step by step. These tips are also offered as suggestions and should be used with caution, as they are not supported by ESRI, but offered as a resource
