Easily Unlocking and Utilizing Geodatabases
Shapefiles are a time-tested method for data exchange. However, because today’s projects are growing in size and complexity, technology is surpassing shapefiles’ capabilities as a useful mechanism. The Esri® File Geodatabase (FGDB) format is becoming a better choice for data exchange, replacing shapefiles in modern data exchange workflows.
This paper discusses how the 2014 release of Hexagon Geospatial products, which include a new FGDB dataserver, enables users to seamlessly work with Esri data in their workflows.
