The Data Interoperability toolbox contains out-of-the-box geoprocessing conversion tools that import and export data between geodatabase and nonnative formats using FME readers and writers.
The Quick Import tool imports one or more external datasets into a geodatabase as feature classes. The input parameters include the data source and the FME reader and any parameters supported by the chosen format. The output staging geodatabase can be used directly or for further processing.
The Quick Export tool exports one or more geodatabase feature classes or feature layers to an external dataset. The input parameters include the data source and the FME writer and any parameters supported by the chosen format.
Quick conversion tools perform simple one-to-one translations and do not modify feature geometry or schemas during conversion. If your work requires schema changes, consider using spatial ETL tools.
These tools are ideal when you need to convert data quickly. They can be used as stand-alone geoprocessing tools, used in ModelBuilder, executed in a Python window or script, or published with models in toolboxes as geoprocessing services using ArcGIS Server.
Possible uses include the following:
- Importing GML data to a geodatabase
- Exporting geodatabase features as a MapInfo TAB dataset
- Converting between nonnative formats using Quick Import and Quick Export tools in a model
