I am running the trial version of ArcGIS Desktop 10. I received a folder with .gdbtable , .gdbindexes, .freelist files. I've tried connecting the folder, importing the dataset, etc.. and I am failing bigtime. I've changed the extension on the folder to .gdb and tried importing that way. My goal is to convert the files to .dwg or .dxf for autocad, but I can't get to viewing. Any help is appreciated.
It sounds like the geodatabase you received may be corrupt - try requesting it again.
Tell the dataset creator to zip the entire geodatabase directory, from one level above the the files you're seeing.
Eg, if the file is called C:\data\FileName.gdb, they should open C:\data in Windows, right-click on FileName.gdb, and zip this. This will create a zip file containing FileName.gdb, which will contain the constituent files.
You should be able to preview the geodatabase in ArcCatalog, or add it to ArcMap using the Add Data option.
Just learned that while you have downloaded <FILENAME>.gdb.zip, you must create new folder> "<FILENAME>.gdb" >extract zip file to new folder.... THEN ArcMap will recognize the data.1 of 1 people found this helpful
If you simply extract your data to a file without creating the destination folder with a .gdb extension, it will not be recognized.
We are making a iOS application for offline viewing of map.
We have .tpk file to show offline map and .gdb file for database to show related information of map layers.
But we are unable to read the .gdb file.
Should the extension be something different? How should we add this file in our application?
And how can we read this file to get the data of layers.
Please help for this.
