You can limit the scope of an adjustment area by using the Limited Adjustment Area tool . This tool is only available for the Rubbersheet adjustment method.
This tool allows you to draw a polygon shape around only the features you want to adjust. Any features that are outside this polygon area will not be affected by the adjustment, regardless of whether they are selected. The Limited Adjustment Area tool provides similar anchoring as identity links. However, in cases where you must add many identity links, using the Limited Adjustment Area tool may save you time.
- Click the New Limited Adjustment Area tool on the Spatial Adjustment toolbar.
- Draw a polygon around the area you want to rubbersheet and double-click to complete the polygon. Features outside this polygon will not be affected during the adjustment. You can create multiple limited adjustment areas with the Limited Adjustment Area tool.
- Click Clear Limited Adjustment Area to remove the limited adjustment area polygon.
