Hi all,


I have been working on US and Canada shapefiles.;As you may know these are very huge files to edit, so I had to copy files on the desktop to work with in ArcMap.


I have run the topology editing tool, and it detected some slivers between the great lakes. I cleaned all the overlaps and gaps shown as errors. However, As I zoomed in further just to make sure everything is clean, I realized there were more tiny gaps between the units i have tried to validate the topology again and again, but cannot see those issues. Does anyone know why the Topology tool cannot detect these tiny slivers and how to fix them in an automated way?
