Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing data from online providers, part of Learning ArcGIS.
…If you are a part of large organization…or government agency, then it's likely that you'll…have access to a library of GIS data…products that are suited for your particular needs.…Or you might be gathering your own GIS spatial data through…a project or study, or through field work using GPS receivers.…If neither of this applied to you, then it's highly likely…that you'll need to obtain suitable data from various outside sources.…Depending on the part of the world that…you're trying to map, this task could be either…conducted with a simple Google search, or require much…more effort to obtain the data that you'll need.…
In some cases, the data might be…completely unobtainable, and just not publicly available.…Other times, the data might be available for a fee from a commercial data provider.…I sometimes feel like the data collection phase of a mapped production takes…up 50% of the total time budget so make sure that plan accordingly.…That said over time you'll build up a list of data providers that…you've found to be reliable and provide quality data that you can trust.…
