Focus on Geodatabases in ArcGIS Pro introduces readers to the geodatabase, the comprehensive information model for representing and managing geographic information across the ArcGIS platform.

Sharing best practices for creating and maintaining data integrity, chapter topics include the careful design of a geodatabase schema, building geodatabases that include data integrity rules, populating geodatabases with existing data, working with topologies, editing data using various techniques, building 3D views, and sharing data on the web. Each chapter includes important concepts with hands-on, step-by-step tutorials, sample projects and datasets, 'Your turn' segments with less instruction, study questions for classroom use, and an independent project. Instructor resources are available by request.
