The default geodatabase for the project is a perfect location to store copies of the data that will appear on the map. It also serves as the destination for any geoprocessing tasks that might be performed.
- [Instructor] Sometimes you'll want to keep your own…copy of a data source for your project.…By copying it into the project's file Geodatabase…you make sure that it stays with your project…and it won't be modified by others…after you've brought it in.…In order to copy data into the geodatabase…we'll be using a geoprocessing tool…called Feature Class to Geodatabase.…Now just as a quick refresher,…let's take a look inside of the projects databases folder…and we can see that we have…currently two different geodatabases.…The home geodatabase is called WorldMap,…and that's the geodatabase that's currently stored…inside of our project folder,…which in this case is 0205 geodatabase.…
The other geodatabase we're linking to…from our GIS data folder, and it's called World Hydro.…So hovering your mouse over each item…will display the popup where we can confirm…the location of the home geodatabase…is in the project folder and the other database is not.…To access the geoprocessing tools you can flip over…to the tab to the right of Symbology,…
