ArcGIS™ Geo-database Design Training

ArcGIS™ Geo-Database Modeling – 1 Day Course

For organizations wanting to design their ArcGIS™ Geo-databases using a full featured, repository-based modeling tool.

Why Choose This Course?

The course caters to organizations that want to not only model their Geo-database schema, but also relate its constructs to Business (e.g. requirements) and/or Application Architecture (e.g. XML schemas) elements within the same multi-User repository.

Course Overview

ESRI-LogoThis course covers all the techniques for modeling an ArcGIS™ Geo-database in Enterprise Architect.
Topics include defining workspaces, creating feature and domain classes, configuring spatial references, validating the model, and exporting it to an ArcGIS XML schema.

Besides teaching the notation, the course instructs the student on the use of the core tool features such as searching and documentation generation, and includes hands-on exercises and best practice recommendations.

Who Should Attend?

Analysts, architects and developers with a basic understanding of the ArcGIS Geo-database schema constructs.
