Staying at the top in your GIS career requires keeping current with the latest tools and then constantly adding new capabilities to your portfolio. For those who have mastered ArcGIS desktop, the next step to the summit is the KCGIS Center 2-day class, Data Management in the Geodatabase. You won’t reach your peak if you don’t keep moving forward. Register today!
For many GIS projects, there is a simplified way to accomplish a task, as well as a more advanced approach for completing the same task. Now that you’re comfortable with the basic functionality of ArcGIS, you may be looking for some more advanced methods of accomplishing your goals. Maybe you want to set some restrictions on your datasets to make sure the appropriate attribute values are always used, or to ensure that there are never gaps between parcel boundaries. Maybe you want to make more permanent connections between datasets and tables. Or perhaps you’d like to tie events, such as a set of bus stops, along line features with automated ease. These advanced operations are often overlooked, but can greatly enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of GIS.
Data Management in the Geodatabase is for those who are already comfortable with the basics of ArcGIS and want to learn more about working with the enhanced functionality of geodatabases in ArcGIS. With Data Management in the Geodatabase, ArcGIS can work hard for you!
Day 1 Topics
- The File Geodatabase—A quick overview of the features and functions available within the file geodatabase.
- Maintaining Data Integrity—Setting attribute rules for your datasets to ensure accuracy and maintain consistency.
- Linear Referencing—See multiple events along a line, such as potholes or bus stops, and see how attributes, such as pavement quality or speed limit, change along portions of the same line.
- Geometric Networks—Connect points and lines into a network that helps you see how features are connected, display flow along the networks, and detect how potential problems will affect conditions down the line.
Day 2 Topics
- Geodatabase Topology—Setting geometry rules on your datasets to maintain quality and easily locate and fix errors.
- Quality Control Tips & Tricks—A collection of tools and functions in ArcGIS that help analyze and maintain data quality.
- Relationship Classes—An introduction to connecting items in a geodatabase through relationship classes, making it easier to access and update related information.
- Putting it All Together—Put all of these new skills into practice with a realistic project that traces a potential spill along a river network.
- GIS Project includes domains, linear referencing, and geometric networks
- Bonus Project—Test your GIS skills with this bonus project, which focuses on determining a potential pipeline route and onshore site with the least amount of risk involved.
Our Students Speak
“I really enjoyed learning about subtypes, linear referencing, and relationship classes. I hadn’t spent much time on these topics in other courses.”
“Great instructors and content. Comfortable class environment.”
