Editing the geodatabase in ArcMap

We have authored our Bestaurants geodatabase and created the food and drinks venues' feature classes. However, these classes are empty, and until they have some features, we can't visualize them; it is time to populate them with features. To do that, we need an editing tool, and ArcMap can help with this. However, before we can start editing our geodatabase, we need to know where we can add these features. We can't just place them anywhere in the world. We need a reference to base our editing on, Basemap. I have already prepared a map document and saved it to the extent of Belize. You can find it in the supporting files for this chapter, 8648OT_01_Files, which can be downloaded from www.packtpub.com.
