An overview of the Geodatabase toolset

The Geodatabase toolset contains tools for importing and exporting data and metadata formats.


Create Cross-Reference Geodatabase

Creates a cross-reference geodatabase that the Load Data tool uses to map source data to target data when loading batch data.

Export MGCP Metadata

Exports a Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP) or MGCP Urban Vector Data (MUVD) metadata dataset (Cell or Resource, Subregion, and Source feature classes) to an .xml file.

Extract Data By Feature

Extracts features from multiple input feature classes into a target database.

Generate Excel From Geodatabase

Creates a Microsoft Excel file (.xls or .xlsx) from the contents of a geodatabase.

Generate Geodatabase From Excel

Creates a geodatabase from the contents of a Microsoft Excel file (.xls or .xlsx).

Geodatabase To Shape

Exports one or more feature classes in a geodatabase to shapefiles using one of three modes: defense, generic, and Multinational Geospatial Co-Production Program (MGCP).

GeoNames To Geodatabase

Loads GeoNames data into a feature class and table. The feature class is composed of point features, and the table contains fields with information concerning the naming conventions used for the features. The feature class contains the Unique Feature Identifier (UFI) and Unique Name Identifier (UNI) fields, which match the same fields in the GeoNames table.

Import MGCP Metadata

Imports Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP) or MGCP Urban Vector Data (MUVD) metadata to an MGCP or MUVD database.

Load Data

Moves features from one schema to another by loading data from a source to a target workspace. Data mapping rules described in a cross-reference database are applied during loading.

Unzip MGCP Cell And Import

Unzips and imports compressed Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP) 1-degree-by-1-degree cell packages (*.zip) into a target geodatabase.
