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.
