Evolution of Esri Data Formats Seminar

  1. 1. Evolution of Esri Data Formats Rudolf De Munnik Ross Solomons
  2. 2. Seminar Outline • Introduction • Legacy Formats • Demonstration • Current Formats • BREAK (15min) • Demonstration • Future Formats • Demonstration • Questions / Discussions
  3. 3. Introduction• Purpose of the seminar: − History of formats. − Awareness to the optimal usage of the software and data formats. − Purpose, advantages and disadvantages of formats − What the future holds…
  4. 4. History Timeline 1982(ArcInfo) 1986(PC ArcInfo) 1991(ArcInfo) 1991(ArcCAD) Coverages Coverages GRID CAD1991(ArcView 1) 1994(ArcInfo) 1995(ArcSDE) 1996 1999(ArcView 3.2) Shapefiles ArcStorm RDBMS (MapObjects) Models, Extensions1997(ArcView IMS) 1999(ArcIMS) 2001(ArcGIS 8.1) 2006 ArcGIS 10.1 Map Services Map Services Geodatabase (ArcGIS Server 9.2) 2012 Map Services Cloud
  5. 5. Legacy Formats• Organizational use: − Projects and Departments• Users: − Data capturing and storage Project Department
  6. 6. Legacy Formats• ArcInfo Coverages: Topology: - Build command - Clean command Model for the Geodatabase Feature Dataset
  7. 7. ArcInfo Workstation
  8. 8. Legacy Formats• ArcStorm: − Central storage and checkout editing − Coverage based − Tile structure − Pessimistic locking of Tiles − Checked out Tiles not available to other users − Mapped network drives − No Relational database − Initial concepts for SDE
  9. 9. Legacy Formats• ArcSDE: − Store Spatial data in a Relational Database − Oracle, Informix, DB2 − Utilise Spatial Types (OGC) − No Geodatabase functions − No Feature Datasets − Allow raster storage − Rasters fast, but large. − Raster duplication.
  10. 10. Legacy Formats• Shapefile legacy: − Simple geographic data format − Big Demand for simple storage − Open Exchange format − Adopted as standard − Interoperability buzzword − Point, Line and Polygon only
  11. 11. Demonstration• ArcInfo Workstation• ArcView 3.2
  12. 12. Current Formats Overview• Organization: − Projects, Departments, Enterprise• User: − Analysis and Consume• Shapefile limitations• Geodatabase advantages• Services• Mobile• Cloud
  13. 13. Organizational Use• Projects − Shapefiles and File Geodatabase• Departments − Geodatabase (Oracle, SQL…)• Enterprise − Geodatabase (Oracle, SQL…) − Services (ArcGIS Server) Project Department Enterprise
  14. 14. Shape file Limitations• No Topology• No Attribute validation• Size limitation (2GB)• No complex geometry• No multiuser editing To Geodatabase• No Annotation Shapefile• DBF Limitations − Data types e.g. date/time − Field names 10 chars Shapefile − BlobsNot using full potential of ArcGIS
  15. 15. Geodatabase Advantages• What is a Geodatabase? − Central storage and management location for rich collection of spatial data, − Sophisticated rules and relationships. − Geoprocessing and symbology.
  16. 16. Geodatabase Advantages• Why use a Geodatabase? − Integration with RDBMS (Oracle, SQL..) − Multi-user editing (versions) − Topology rules and behavior − Attribute validation (domains) − Greater storage capacity − Lower storage requirements − Optimized performance − Scalable (File GDB, SQL Express, Enterprise) Leverage full potential of ArcGIS!!
  17. 17. Geodatabase elementsGeodatabase TablesFeature dataset Raster datasets Spatial reference Raster mosaic Feature classes Polygon Route Additional geodatabase elements Line Dimension Survey datasets Terrain datasets Point GPS Datasets Schematics Annotation Network datasets Representations Relationship classes Toolboxes Geometric networks Tool Model Script Topology Behavior Attribute defaults Connectivity rules Network datasets Attribute domains Relationship rules Split/Merge policy Topology rules
  18. 18. Geodatabase Design• Domains, Attachments and Aliases − Utilize on multiple platforms − Design for editing in Desktop − Design for Server applications − Design for Mobile Validation in Attributes dialog box Validation in attribute table
  19. 19. Feature Dataset defined• Logical grouping of Feature Classes that participate in a behavioral function e.g. Topology.• Common coordinate system for all contained Feature Classes.• User permission set on Feature Dataset level.• Feature Class name unique in Geodatabase, not in Feature Dataset.• Not to be used to organize data – not a directory!
  20. 20. Services• Dynamic Services − Live content from Geodatabase − View updates − Interrogate data• Cached Services − Predefined Tile schema at various scales − Stored as images in Tile structure• Image Services − Single or mosaic images served
  21. 21. Mobile• Mobile (GPS) − High accuracy devices − Data capture − Ruggedized − Purpose driven − Workflow − Geodatabase design• Mobile (Smartphone) − Windows, Apple, Android − Executive monitoring − Planning − Geodatabase design
  22. 22. Online (Cloud) content• Online content − Image and Street − Desktop, Server, Mobile − Online access control• Subscription − Personal − Organization − Upload data/proc − Applications and Dashboards
  23. 23. BREAK• 15 Minute Break
  24. 24. Demonstration• Geodatabase: − Elements − Topology − Network analysis − Domains − Representations − Annotation − Attachments − Geometric Networks
  25. 25. Demonstration• Services• Mobile• Online content
  26. 26. Future Formats• Organizational use: − Projects, Departments, Enterprise − Societal• Users − Everyone Project Department Societal Enterprise
  27. 27. Demonstration• Social Media• 3D Web Viewer (Braamfontein)• 3D Web Viewer (Airport )
