What is the difference?
Shapefiles are a type of feature class. A feature class is a collection of common features that share geometry, attribute fields and in GIS, a spatial reference. Geodatabase feature classes, which are more commonly referred to as just feature classes, are object based containers that store all of the above in a single item, rather than the multiple file structure we see in shapefiles.Continue reading
You have renewed your ArcGIS Online subscription and ArcGIS Pro licenses but you find you can no longer access the license. You have an error saying the license has expired. Why has this happened? You have changed nothing, your renewal was on time and the license had worked previously.
It happened because by default ArcGIS Pro licenses are tied to a user type, and they must be assigned to a member in ArcGIS Online. To address the error the Administrator needs to change the User Type.Continue reading
Australia has recently moved towards a new datum, the Geocentric Datum of Australia 2020 (GDA2020), to facilitate a more robust, accurate and capable datum that is more closely aligned with the expectations of a modern, connected Australia.
The introduction of a new datum impacts all areas of the software. Esri support for GDA2020 was progressively added as the datum parameters and associated transformation methods were released. Versions of ArcGIS Pro 2.2 and greater now support GDA2020, the associated projections, and transformations between it and GDA94.
ArcGIS users who are required to continue working with data in GDA94 format may encounter problems sharing web maps from ArcGIS Pro 2.8.3 and earlier to ArcGIS Enterprise up to and including version 10.9.0.
Attempts to share a web map fail with this message – ERROR 001369: Failed to create the service
Log context messages contain the following information –
- ArcGIS Pro – “Default Map name is: Incompatible Map.”
- ArcMap – “Default Map name is: Layers.”
ArcGIS Pro 2.8.0 introduced a new set of transformations for transforming between GDA94 and WGS84
When a new map is created in ArcGIS Pro 2.8.0 and above with at least one layer in GDA94 based coordinate system, the default transformation is set to “GDA 1994 to WGS 1984 2″ as below.
This new transformation – “GDA 1994 to WGS 1984 2″ – is only available with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 and greater.
The workaround is to change the map’s coordinate transformation settings by opening map properties and changing the transformation to “GDA 1994 to WGS 1984”.

Enterprise geodatabases work with a variety of DBMS storage models and support native SQL spatial types for all supported database management systems. Third-party application or SQL can be used to create spatial or nonspatial tables in the database management system (DBMS) and you can view and query these datasets in ArcGIS Pro.
Attempting to edit these datasets in ArcGIS Pro does however result in the following error message: ‘No editable layers‘Continue reading

Data published as a feature layer must reference a single source geodatabase or database. You cannot publish data from more than one database connection in a single map.
In ArcGIS Pro, if you were to publish the data in a map as a map image and feature layer and there are multiple data sources referenced in the map you will get an error: ‘00062: Map contains data that does not use the same connection to an enterprise geodatabase’.Continue reading
