About workspaces

A workspace is a container of spatial and nonspatial datasets, such as feature classes, raster datasets, and tables. This can mean a personal geodatabase, file geodatabase, ArcSDE geodatabase, folder of shapefiles, folder containing computer-aided design (CAD) drawings, or numerous other data sources. This section in the software development kit (SDK) contains topics for programmatically working with workspaces.
