I am a new Arc user and completely self-taught. I wondered if any of you could help with my problem. I have an Arc database I have been given and have added to it; some of the lines I have drawn using the Editor appear quite rough and pixelated - I need them to be smoother. Is this a case in increasing the resolution of the grid (is this possible?), or is this something I am going to have to live with?
I have attached an image showing my problem. The lines in question are the thick dark grey lines.
I am using 10.0 (and my IT deptartment tells me this is all I am allowed for now).
If you could help me out with this, or point me in the direction of a website that can, I'd really appreciate it.
If this is raster data, this means that the dark grey lines represent pixels each of which has, again, a certain location and different techniques should be used. For rasters, you might look into Spatial Analyst toolbox inside your ArcToolbox window. Take a look at Resample tool: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#//00170000009t000000. However, there is a bigger risk the resultant raster will be less accurate and caution shall be shown when applying raster processing techniques.
Do not forget to do backups whenever processing the data!
