___IGIS-Arc_YourInitials\Digitize&Transform
make a personal geodatabase named Islands.mdb. Inside that, make a feature dataset named UTM_Zone_2 with the following specifications: WGS 1984, UTM Zone 2 (North) and Vertical Coordinate System > World > WGS 1984 Geoid. Click Next. Make the XY Tolerance 1 meter and the Z Tolerance 1 meter. Finish. Within the UTM_Zone_2 feature dataset, make a feature class named North_Island_Lines. Specify its Type as Line Features. (Don’t add any new fields.)
____ 3. Start ArcMap with a blank map. First Add North_Islands_Lines to the map (which will, of course, show up as nothing since it’s an empty feature class). Then add Five_Islands.TIF to the map. Zoom to the TIF layer.
