ArcGIS Data Interoperability eliminates barriers to data sharing by providing state-of-the-art direct data access; data translation tools; and the ability to build complex spatial extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL) processes. ArcGIS Data Interoperability allows you to use any standard GIS data, regardless of format, within the ArcGIS for Desktop environment for mapping, visualization, and analysis. The Workbench application, included with the extension, enables you to build complex spatial ETL tools for data validation, migration, and distribution.

With ArcGIS Data Interoperability, you can

  • Directly read more than 100 spatial data formats, including GML, XML, WFS, Autodesk, DWG/DXF, MicroStation Design, MapInfo, MID/MIF and TAB, Oracle and Oracle Spatial, and Intergraph GeoMedia Warehouse, and export to more than 70 spatial data formats.
  • Perform automated conversion between source and destination formats.
  • Create, manipulate, and convert geometry and attributes using spatial ETL tools built with the Workbench application.
  • Enjoy full integration with the ArcGIS geoprocessing environment including the ModelBuilder framework.
