Learning ArcGIS Geodatabase
An all-in-one start-up kit to author, manage, and administer ArcGIS geodatabases
- Covers the basics of building Geodatabases, using ArcGIS, from scratch
- Model the Geodatabase to an optimal state using the various optimization techniques
- Packed with real-world examples showcasing ArcGIS Geodatabase to build mapping applications in web, desktop, and mobile
ArcGIS is an industry standard for geospatial development and management. A geodatabase is the database used to store and manage the spatial data.
Learning ArcGIS Geodatabases offers a comprehensive working and practical experience for readers who are interested in knowing about ArcGIS. The initial chapters guide you through authoring geodatabases and creating a geodatabase schema and datasets. Then, the book focuses extensively on modeling and optimizing geodatabases.
Finally, you will be able to work comfortably with datasets, annotations, and relationship classes, making it easier to migrate from a legacy database to an ArcGIS geodatabase.
What you will learn from this book
- Explore the benefits of geodatabases with practical illustrations
- Work with geodatabase datasets covering feature classes, tables, relationship classes, coverage, and annotations
- Model your geodatabase by creating a sturdy design that can sustain large edits and decrease maintenance
- Discover various tools to optimize queries and response time, which will help you to fine-tune your geodatabase
- Utilize Python scripting to author your geodatabase programmatically
- Set up and configure a full-fledged networked enterprise geodatabase using ArcSDE technology
- Add programming flavors to your geodatabase using Python
This is a solution-based book, showcasing the real power of ArcGIS Geodatabase by following a real-world, example-based approach
