I am trying to make a map of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding land masses.  The problem is the ldata I have (from ESRI Data and Maps) has the Pacific Ocean split.  Is there a way to change the way the data is viewed so I can see the east Pacific and west Pacific all together?  I have been self-taught on using ArcMap so I don't know all the technical stuff...so please explain as if I don't know anything about the program;)

Thanks in advance.
