In order to make the rich suite of mapping tools present in ArcGIS available to a Smallworld shop, it is necessary to expose the data. After a review of technological options, it was decided that maximum flexibility and performance could be achieved by mirroring the data model in a geodatabase. Synchronization is accomplished through periodic incremental updates. This paper will describe a pilot project to publish data to field users using ArcGIS Publisher. Future directions include bidirectional synchronization in order to utilize landbase maintenance tools in ArcGIS.
