When deploying a multiuser ArcSDE geodatabase, organizations need to design an editing workflow that ensures the integrity of their valuable GIS data and integrates well with existing business workflows. In this course, you will learn about the available multiuser editing environments and options, and explore considerations for deciding which editing workflow will best meet the needs of your organization. This course is suitable for those working with desktop, workgroup, and enterprise ArcSDE geodatabases.


After completing this course, you will be able to

  • Design and implement various multiuser editing workflows.
  • Edit data in a nonversioned and versioned environment.
  • Manage multiple geodatabase versions.
  • Use geodatabase archiving to track changes to data over time.
  • Use geodatabase replication to support data collection, updates, and sharing.
  • Create and use multiversioned views.
  • Monitor versioned geodatabase performance.
  • Implement techniques to maintain performance.



Who Should Attend?

  • GIS data managers and experienced ArcGIS users who need to manage their editing environment in a multiuser geodatabase.
