Using Python to help Manage an Enterprise Geodatabase
Track: Python for Arcgis
Authors: David Watkins
This presentation discusses and illustrates the use of Python and Arcpy to manage an SDE database. Script tools were created using ArcGIS 10.1 and Python 2.7 to inventory data, ensure quality control, and automate repetitive processes. The data being managed was in Oracle SDE enterprise database.
The use of script tools resulted in many hours of saved time and consistent output. They were very useful for managing a large dataset with hundreds of feature classes.
