Preparing the TelZaViBa data and code

Here we will explain the concepts of the geodatabases such as layer, feature class, feature, and geometry. We will also prepare the TelZaViBa geodatabase, map document, and code.

Before we dive into customizing ArcGIS, it is important to know some key concepts and definitions. We will start with the geodatabase. We will create and prepare the TelZaViBa geodatabase from scratch and we will populate it with some towers. Then we will prepare the map document on which we will work. Finally, we will start writing some code.

Note

The ArcGIS geodatabase is the proprietary database for Esri. All Esri geospatial software is built around this geodatabase.
