Building Geodatabases

Strictly by pre-registration only

What is this course about?

Esri Singapore's building geodatabases training course is designed for intermediate level users of ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced. This course teaches you the essential concepts and skills needed to efficiently create a geodatabase, add data to it, and realistically model the real-world spatial relationships inherent to your data. You will learn about unique geodatabase features that help ensure data integrity over time and why the geodatabase is the preferred format for storing and managing geographic data. Course concepts apply to file-based and multiuser ArcSDE geodatabases. This course is taught using ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced.

The course is for: GIS analysts, specialists, data technicians, database designers, and others who need to manage and maintain data stored in a geodatabase. GIS managers and database administrators who need to understand the capabilities of the geodatabase may also benefit.

Safety measures for training courses

While courses in our training facility have resumed, we want to assure you that the wellbeing of our trainees and staff remains Esri Singapore’s highest priority.

As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, strict safety measures and guidelines as recommended by the Ministry of Health are being adhered to for all training conducted.

All computer equipment and desks are disinfected before class commences and during the lunch break, while seats are placed and marked at least 1-metre apart, in accordance with official Safe Distance Measures.

Masks are mandatory throughout training, and alcohol hand sanitisers and anti-bacterial wet wipes will be available.

Your temperature will be taken before commencement. For your safety, you will be asked to return home and see a doc if your temperature exceeds 37.5deg.

An isolation room has been prepared for trainees to rest in if they are feeling unwell and awaiting transportation.

Are there any prerequisites?

Completion of ArcGIS 2: Essential Workflows or equivalent knowledge is required
