- [Narrator] Before we can create new data in our project,…we'll need a place to store it.…The default geodatabase is a perfect location,…but you can designate any geodatabase…that you've linked to.…To create new data in the geodatabase,…we first need to define the type of data…we want to store.…We do this by creating something called a feature class.…A feature class defines a group of objects…that all share the same attributes.…For instance, we might create…a feature class for buildings.…Since all of our buildings will be represented by polygons…and have the same attributes such as height,…year built, and the number of floors,…they can all get grouped together in a single feature class.…
