7.14 COGO Editing
COGO, which is short for Coordinate Geometry, allows ArcGIS users to enter legal descriptions directly into ArcMap. The tutorial in this topic explains how to enter degrees-minutes-seconds quadrant bearings along with distances expressed in feet. Note that the "Traverse Tool" which is used to "COGO" does not work when using ArcGIS ArcView or ArcGIS Basic licensing level.
