Description

See also: Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Sustainable Human Systems

This course covered the essential concepts of the geodatabase, the native data storage format for ArcGIS, and explored its advanced functionality that allows for more realistic representation of spatial data.  The course focused on geodatabase design concepts and explored the creation and editing of advanced geodatabase elements used for maintaining spatial and attribute relationships, in particular, attribute domains, subtypes, topology, relationship classes, and annotation.  Basic data modeling using networks and data migration was also covered.

Participants should have had introductory knowledge of Geographic Information Systems before attending this course.

Workshop format: approximately 50% lecture, 50% hands on training via guided lab exercises completed individually on computers.

 

Objectives

By attending this course, participants:

1.  Developed an understanding of geodatabase design and modeling concepts for spatial data.

2.  Learned to design and apply geodatabase schemas to efficiently model and store data.

3.  Created and modified advanced geodatabase components including  attribute domains,
subtypes, topology,relationship classes, and annotation.

4.  Explored the basic modeling of networks including utility and transportation networks.

5.  Efficiently migrated and loaded existing spatial data into a designed geodatabase.
