Free, Live Training Seminar Explores Basics of the Geodatabase Data Model (ESRI)

November 1, 2005 -- Redlands, California—All analysis projects, ranging from water quality to parcel distribution, greatly benefit from a geodatabase data model. A new live training seminar from ESRI Virtual Campus explores the basics of the geodatabase for new users or those who are considering migrating their geographic data from other formats. The Basics of the Geodatabase Data Model will be presented on November 10, 2005, at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m., Pacific time.

The geodatabase provides the common data access and management framework for ArcGIS that enables users to deploy GIS functionality and business logic wherever it is needed-on desktops, on servers (including the Web), or in mobile devices. With this functionality, features are modeled more realistically than ever before. The geodatabase is essential for representing real-world features and inputting, querying, displaying, and analyzing geographic data.

This seminar introduces the structure and basic functionality of the geodatabase and discusses the advantages the geodatabase offers for storing spatial and attribute data. Participants learn how geographic data is stored in the basic components of a geodatabase: tables, feature classes, feature datasets, and relationships. The presenter will also discuss ArcCatalog tools for identifying and examining geodatabase components and tips for organizing geodatabase feature classes.

A broadband Internet connection and an ESRI Virtual Campus membership are required to view the seminar. Becoming a Virtual Campus member is free and only takes a few minutes. Following the live presentation, the seminar will be archived and available for viewing at any time on the Virtual Campus Web site. More information about this seminar, including instructions for attending and a schedule of upcoming seminars, is available at
