ArcToolbox (Fig. 12) is where all of the geoprocessing and spatial
analysis tools are located. There are hundreds of tools available and they
range from basic to advanced. The toolbox can be accessed in both ArcMap and
ArcCatalog by clicking the icon from the standard tools
menu or by selecting Geoprocessing >
ArcToolbox from the main menu. To easily find a tool, type the name of the
tool into the Search window to save
time from manually searching through the toolbox. In the following sections,
some of the more basic toolbox tools will be discussed, but this is by no means
an exhaustive tutorial.
