Migrating DWG Data to GIS
Concept Procedure

To move DWG data to a geospatial format

  1. Decide whether you will move the data to an existing data store, or create a new data store for it.
  2. Decide whether you will use an existing schema or a new schema for the data.
  3. Query the data from the DWG into your map.
  4. Export the data to SDF, or to an FDO data store (Oracle or ESRI ArcSDE).
  5. After the drawing data has been moved to a GIS format, add new data to it by right-clicking one of its feature class layers and creating a new feature.
