Technical Session. Workshop “Getting Know Data Interoperability Extension for ArcGIS. Do More with Less”
AUTHORS: Alexander Stepanov, Niels La Cour – University of Massachusetts, Amherst

ABSTRACT: ESRI ArcGIS is a powerful geo-spatial platform which includes desktop, server, web and cloud components. In general, operations with data within the platform are straight forward due to common data formats and standards. In many cases, users need to bring data from external sources/organizations and multiple formats such as CAD, BIM, Excel, Social Networks, XML, text-based formats into the ArcGIS environment. ArcGIS has a Data InterOperability extension, which allows users to build powerful ETL (extract-transform-load) and automation workflows. In this hands-on workshop, we will show practical examples of bringing data from/to CAD (utilities, architectural drawings), harvesting and processing CAD attributes, creating complex PDF reports and data maintenance automation workflows (bulk attribute renaming, remapping data schema, QAQC, merging multiple data sources, etc). The workshop targets users with some ArcGIS Desktop experience. Some experience with Model builder is useful. No programming experience is required.
