Chapter 2. Working with Geodatabase Datasets

In the previous chapter, we discussed how to design and author an ArcGIS geodatabase. After reading and analyzing the Bestaurants case study, we created the geodatabase and populated it with feature classes based on the requirements.

In this chapter, we will delve deeper into the different types of geodatabase datasets, and work closely with each one and use them to enrich our Bestaurants geodatabase.
