How do you populate the attribute table with geometry data

How do you populate the attribute table with data from the geometry data


  • That depends on what type of geometry you're looking for. Generally you can use the workspace tools to calculate and add data to the attribute table: select the data in the workspace, right click, then choose an option from the Analysis/Measurement menu such as "MEASURE - Display Feature Measurements" or "Add/ Update the Measure Attributes of Selected Features"

  • Thanks for the response. I am trying to take Geometry that is already calculated / included in shapefiles and find/use a function that would automatically populate attribute columns e.g. Perimeter, Area, etc rather than manually having to do so for each attribute and each shapefile.
