Introduction to the Geodatabase 10.x

Call for Price

This course follows on from the ArcGIS 1 – Fundamentals of ArcGIS 10.x for Desktop course and is aimed at users who need to understand more about the management and behaviour of a geodatabase. It is a pre-requisite for attending the Deploying and Maintaining a Multiuser Geodatabase – ArcGIS Pro course. Similar content could also be learned by attending the ArcGIS 2 and ArcGIS 3 courses instead.

The Introduction to the Geodatabase course will take the user through the process of creating and populating a file geodatabase. This will include creating, importing and manipulating vector and, raster data. It will also cover creating attribute and spatial validation rules (behaviour) and working with geodatabase annotation.

Some of this behaviour requires an ArcGIS Standard or Advanced licence.
