Distributing Data using Geodatabase Replication

Strictly by pre-registration only

What is this course about?

This course teaches you how to plan for and implement geodatabase replication to support multi-user editing workflows and data sharing initiatives. Geodatabase replication is a powerful way to extend access to GIS data stored in a multi-user ArcSDE geodatabase across organisations and into the field. This course teaches you how to plan for and implement geodatabase replication to support multi-user editing workflows and data sharing initiatives. You will learn best practices for protecting the integrity of your production database while meeting the needs of desktop, mobile, and online users.

This course is designed for database administrators, GIS data managers, and others who need to incorporate geodatabase replication into their organisation's business and versioned editing workflows.
