The geodatabase is the newest spatial data model created by Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. for use in the ArcGIS desktop application suite. The model vastly improves the accuracy and integrity of spatial data through key advantages that allow you to assign behaviors to individual features, define relationships between classes of features, apply high-level topological models, and network editing. This course serves as an introduction to personal geodatabase concepts and illustrates how to implement geographic database designs.

Topics include:

* Building a new geodatabase, feature data set, feature class, and table
* Populating a geodatabase with GIS data
* Adding behavior to your features by creating subtypes and
validation rules
* Migrating existing GIS data into a geodatabase
* Setting up relationships between objects
* Applying topology rules to improve data accuracy
* Using network analysis for path searching, flow tracing etc.

Class Format: Approximately 50% lecture, 50% software applications.
