Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing ArcCatalog, part of Learning ArcGIS.
…Geospatial data files can be as simple as a single table,…or a complex assortment of files that make up a geo database.…When working with geographic information, it's important to…make sure that you do it inside of an…environment that's custom built to understand how geo…spatial files work and how to interpret their contents.…ArcGIS comes packaged with a program that is built to make…sure that you get the most information out of your data files.…And it's called ArcCatalog.…You might have noticed that it's installed…right along ArcMap inside the ArcGIS program group.…I'm going to go ahead and start ArcCatalog.…I'm going to press the Windows key and either choose the…ArcCatalog tile or type in ArcCatalog to search for it.…
And choose its tile here, and that'll start up the program.…Now our catalog is similar in appearance to…ArcMap and it often uses the same interface techniques.…So for instance over here on the left instead…of a table of contents I have this catalog tree.…But I can use the same pin or unpin features here,…
