ArcMap - Streaming and Freehand Digitizing

ArcGIS has an excellent digitizing feature where you can digitize or create lines and polygons without clicking at every vertex.

This is one great feature that makes ArcGIS standout from other competing software. When you need to digitize a feature with 1000s of vertexes, use any of the methods below:-

1) Digitize by streaming (stream mode digitizing)
2) Digitize by freehand drawing

The video below, demonstrate how to use each method to digitize a lake as a polygon feature.

It save 90% of your time when compared to the regular digitizing method. It is simply faster/quicker to digitize an irregular shaped feature using these methods.
