I [ATTACH=CONFIG]11181[/ATTACH]want to digitize polygones as similar as the attached image. I was not able to find the method to use to digitize the Polygone n°4.
Thank you for your help!

Why can't you do that? Is there anything specific that goes wrong?

I assume you use ArcGIS 10. Here is the tutorial you can start with: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/Exercise_1d_Creating_new_polygon_featu...

Since you want the borders of the polygons will be shared, you may want to use snapping: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/About_snapping/001t0000003t000000/

If you want to "trace" the other existing polygons' borders, you might need the Trace tool from the Editor toolbar. There is a great blog post on using this tool: http://blogs.esri.com/Dev/blogs/arcgisdesktop/archive/2010/11/04/Getting-the-most-out-of-editing-in-...

Otherwise, you might look at the Help pages: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#//001t00000057000000.htm and http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#//001t00000032000000.htm
