Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with geodatabases, part of ArcGIS Essential Training.
- The Esri shaped file has been around…for a long time, and it's a very common way…to sort geo-spatial data.…However, the geo-database is a preferred…storage format due to its efficiency…and its ability to treat different feature classes…as parts of a larger data set rather…than just distinct entities.…Let's use ArcCatalog to create a geo-database…to better hold our Mt. Rainier data.…I'm going to browse down to my folder connections…into the exercise files, chapter eight,…and chapter eight data.…I'll right click here and choose new,…and I have some options here…to create new geo-databases.…The personal geo-database is…a Microsoft Access format database.…
It's an older model that has a size limitation…of about two gigabytes.…The file geo-database on the other hand,…is newer and is the currently preferred file format.…Since it stores data in a folder structure…it has a much higher file size limit…of a single terabyte.…Let's go ahead and click here to create…a new file geo-database.…The database is created, and we can go ahead…
