I use ArcMap 9.3 primarily for mapping various features. I take GPS data in the field and upload various shapefiles such as gas well pads, roads, gates, etc. I usually end up with a long list of individual shapefile such as well 1, well 2, well 3...Is there a way to combine individual shapefiles into a "folder" so the list is not so long?
Mapping Center Answer:
There are a couple of ways to approach this.
First is to create a table, e.g., an Excel spreadsheet, that contains all the coordinates for each kind of feature (wells, gates, etc.). Then use the Add XY Data tool create the shapefiles for each kind of data.
