  • Versioning for Dummies: Part 2, the State ID

    Comments: (0)
    In our first article of this series published last month we covered the basics of ESRI versioning including how adds, deletes, and updates are managed within the versioned geodatabase. We explained that a version in the geodatabase is not a copy of the base business tables but is instead simply a mechanism for tracking the delta changes to the base business tables by using the Add & Delete (A&D) tables. And we took a look at how to locate the corresponding A&D tables for each base business table and the structure of each...

    Here are some common questions I hear from QA managers in Esri versioned environments: How do I view and QAQC ALL the edits in a version? How do I know I'm not missing something? Is there any way to audit the edits that have been performed? In other words, WHO did WHAT, WHEN and WHERE? Sound familiar? Alas! There is an answer. SSP has created a simple tool that can answer each of the above questions and put your mind at ease...
  • Versioning for Dummies: Part 1

    Comments: (1)
    So maybe you’re not really a dummy at all but instead you are a GIS manager who wants and/or needs to understand ESRI versioning. This is one of the most common topics we are asked about in the consulting field and a good one to unpack here in layman’s terms. This is the first in a series of articles that will help to understand versioning as well as provide some useful version management tips and tools. There are many articles out there that define what versioning is but we’re going to attempt to get behind the scenes to look at how versioning works...
