Using a Geodatabase

This course covers the concepts and essential skills to create a geodatabase (GDB or geographic database), add data and modelling, in a realistic way, real-world spatial relationships inherent in your data. You will learn about the unique characteristics of the geodatabase that help preserve the integrity of the data over time and why the geodatabase is the preferred format for storing and managing geographic data. The concepts of the course apply to file and multiuser geodatabases.

In order to function satisfactorily, a multiuser editing environment need a workflow of versioning in good condition that minimizes disruption of publishers, secure the integrity of the GIS data and integrates well with the business workflows and to maintain the optimal performance of the database. This course explores a series of versioned editing workflows and examines how the decisions of versioning influence the accuracy of the data and the performance of the database.


  • Create a multiuser geodatabase and configure connections.
  • Configure for your DMBS multiuser geodatabase.
  • Loading the data to the multiuser geodatabase efficiently.
  • Configuring the storage settings to support workflows of your organization.
  • Setting roles and privileges to provide secure access to the data.
  • Accessing data stored in a multiuser geodatabase, file geodatabase and server GIS.
  • Create a geodatabase for your organization; efficient storage, display data and edit.
  • Add rules and behaviors to ensure special and alphanumeric data integrity.
  • Creating a geodata service to share a geodatabase with users of desktop, web and mobile.
  • Applying best practices to maintain a good performance in the geodatabase.
  • Applying a standard data stream to manage changes in the GIS database.
  • Creating and editing efficiently geographical elements and attributes.
  • Solving the problems of alignment of common data.
  • Maintaining spatial relationships between elements using topology.


This course is designed for administrators of GIS, analysts, technical specialists, datamanagers, databases, and other users who manage and maintain the data stored ina geodatabase. Also, for GIS managers who need to understand the capabilities of ageodatabase. Students must have participated in the course ArcGIS II: workflows orhave equivalent knowledge.
