Are you trying to create a geodatabase for your group? Want to use some of the Geodatabase data validation options such as topologies, subtypes or domains but aren’t sure exactly how? Are you trying to transition away from shapefiles? Are you trying to model your street or utility network? Then the Geodatabases, Linear Referencing & Geometric Networks class we are holding on March 7 – 9 is just what you need.

This 3 day course is designed to introduce users to Esri’s Geodatabase format. This GIS data format provides enhanced tools for data creation, data modeling, and data validation. Participants will learn how to design, create and manage Geodatabases. At the end of the course, students will have an in-depth understanding of the Geodatabase structure and Geodatabase tools for creating and editing data while maintaining data integrity, and will develop a solid foundation for future development into SDE. These tools include subtypes and domains, topology, linear referencing (routes), and Geometric Networks.

Course Topics:

  • Geodatabase concepts and basics
  • Converting data to the Geodatabase format
  • Understanding Spatial References & Coordinate Systems
  • Validating attributes with Domains/Subtypes
  • Validating features with Topology
  • Editing with the Geodatabase
  • Spatial Adjustment & Attribute Transfer
  • Geometric Networks
  • Editing Networks
  • Network Analysis
  • Working with routes
  • Linking to external database


Cost is $1,350.00. Register before the close of business on Feb 24 and save $175.00 off the normal price.  Discounts are available for organizations that send 2 or more students.
