Esri Geodatabases and FME Desktop


Learn how to create Esri Geodatabase translations and transformations, and work with data structures specifically for use in ArcGIS. Topics covered will include domains, subtypes, metadata, aliases, other complexities related to Esri attributes and geometries. You will also gain a better understanding of the different ways FME and ArcGIS technology work together.
