Vector Data is made up of a database of points, lines, and/or polygons that are spatially described using coordinates. These points, lines and polyfgons are used to represent map features. For examples, lines could be representing roads, and polygons could be representing building outlines. ArcGIS can transform different projections of vector data on the fly.
