Unzips and imports compressed Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP) 1-degree-by-1-degree cell packages (*.zip) into a target geodatabase.
This tool recursively searches the Root Folder for ZIP files. ZIP files must contain an MGCP cell package that includes one or more shapefiles and a metadata file.
If no shapefiles are found in the unzipped archive, this tool will continue execution.
This tool uses other ArcGIS Defense Mapping and ArcGIS Production Mapping tools. You must check out a Production Mapping (foundation) license to use this tool.
Target Geodatabase must be an MGCP geodatabase and have an MGCP_Metadata feature dataset. The feature dataset must contain a Cell feature class.
The root folder that contains one or more compressed shapefile cell packages in a .zip file.
The geodatabase where the unzipped shapefiles will be imported.
The database where shape files from Root_Folder have been loaded.
