    Making data storage more efficient Making data storage more efficient Presentation Transcript

    • Making GDB-Domiciled Data More Efficient Using Coded-Value Domains In Lieu Of Look-Up Tables (COGS – AdvGeos – Advanced GIS)
    • Replace Verbosity with Efficiency • This example takes the 44 889 rows of European Railroad lines with two 40- character-wide fields, and replaces them with two 1-character-wide fields that each have coded-value domains • Disk space required for storage: – Initially: 7 Mb – Finally: 5.7 Mb
    • Initial Data Contents
    • Final Data Contents
    • Properties > Fields:
    • Geodatabase Properties > Domains
    • ModelBuilder Trick • To calculate one field based on the first N characters of another, use !field![N-1]
    • Sources • Data (European Railroads) from Esri • Images from ArcGIS (ArcCatalog) • Results are stored on the COGS SDE SQL Server nscccods2 instance
