Geoprocessing Framework

Full Integration to the Geoprocessing Environment

Formats supported by the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension can be used as inputs for the geoprocessing tools. The output from core geoprocessing operations will be standard Esri formats.

The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension also adds a new Data Interoperability Tools toolbox to ArcGIS for Desktop that contains two new conversion tools—Quick Import and Quick Export—for simple automated conversions.

The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension also provides the ability to create Spatial ETL tools.

You can combine all this functionality within a single geoprocessing model. For example, the model below shows the use of a non-Esri data format, MapInfo, as the input to the Buffer core geoprocessing tool. The resultant dataset is then exported to three different formats using the Data Interoperability Quick Export tool. This model demonstrates how you can read data and distribute analysis results in non-Esri formats.
