AVOIDING THE PITFALLS OF GIS ENGINES CONTAINING A GEODATABASE

Conventional GIS suppliers often promote their GIS engine claiming that it levers a “powerful geodatabase.” The presence of a geodatabase in the GIS engine is a necessary prerequisite to run a successful geospatial data management architecture. 

This may trigger a number of questions when organizations seek a solution for exploiting their geospatial data. For example:

  • Why do GIS engines offer (and even require) the use of an additional geodatabase, when I have already stored my geospatial data in a spatial database of my own?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of running a GIS engine that relies on a built-in geodatabase?

The present white paper aims to help you answer such questions.
