Redlands, California- The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension lets ArcGIS Desktop users easily use, share, and distribute data in different formats. To become more familiar with how to use the extension, tune in to the next ESRI live training seminar, Introduction to ArcGIS Data Interoperability.

The seminar will air December 11, 2008, at www.esri.com/lts. The times will be 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. (Pacific standard time).

In a geographic information system (GIS), it’s often necessary to integrate multiple data sources to build a system or complete a model. ArcGIS Data Interoperability, developed by ESRI and Safe Software, enhances ArcGIS by providing access to many new spatial data formats for visualization and analysis. The extension adds support for more than 80 GIS, computer-aided design (CAD), Building Information Modeling (BIM)/3D, and database formats for reading and writing. This allows GIS professionals to work with any standard GIS data, regardless of format, in ArcGIS Desktop.

The extension also provides Spatial Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) tools for data model transformation and distribution. These spatial ETL tools enable users to integrate spatial data from different systems that is maintained in a variety of formats and schemas. 

During the seminar, attendees will learn about what the extension provides in the form of

·         Added support for many different types of spatial data formats

·         Data Interoperability Tools-A toolbox that contains tools for quick data translations

·         Spatial ETL tools

·         A Feature Manipulation Engine (FME) Workbench application used to build Spatial ETL tools

·         Use of formats and tools in the geoprocessing framework such as in models

This seminar is designed for GIS professionals interested in learning how the extension better supports data workflows and for those whose role includes importing, exporting, and managing spatial data. Attendees should be familiar with the ArcGIS 9.x environment including knowing how to work with the ArcMap and ArcCatalog applications. 

A broadband Internet connection and an ESRI Global Account are needed to watch the seminar. Creating a global account is easy and free: visit www.esri.com/lts, click Login, and register your name and address. A few weeks after the live presentation, the seminar will be archived and available for viewing on the ESRI Training and Education Web site.
