Next week we have two traditional instructor led classes being held in the
Metro Atlanta area. The first is Geodatabases, Linear Referencing, and
Geometric Networks. The second in our ArcGIS Desktop Associate Exam Prep
class. Both still have a few seats available.  See information below.


Geodatabases, Linear Referencing, and Geometric Networks
- March 7 - 9, 2012

Are you trying to create a geodatabase for your group? Want to use some of
the Geodatabase data validation options such as topologies, subtypes or
domains but aren't sure exactly how? Are you trying to transition away from
shapefiles? Are you trying to model your street or utility network? Then the
Geodatabases, Linear Referencing
& Geometric Networks class we are holding on March 7-9 is just what you


This 3 day course is designed to introduce users to Esri's Geodatabase
format. This GIS data format provides enhanced tools for data creation, data
modeling, and data validation. Participants will learn how to design, create
and manage Geodatabases. At the end of the course, students will have an
in-depth understanding of the Geodatabase structure and Geodatabase tools
for creating and editing data while maintaining data integrity, and will
develop a solid foundation for future development into SDE. These tools
include subtypes and domains, topology, linear referencing (routes), and
Geometric Networks.  


Course Topics: 

.        Geodatabase concepts and basics

.        Converting data to the Geodatabase format

.        Understanding Spatial References & Coordinate Systems

.        Validating attributes with Domains/Subtypes
