Developing a data structure for a program and efficiently creating figures for reports consist of two entirely different styles in managing GIS data. The complexity increases by a magnitude when a program branches off into multiple projects and additional users comes into the picture to edit GIS data. Each project will have different ways of symbolizing data or showing certain features which makes the figure creation a nightmare. The data model I will be presenting is an object oriented design set up for one-way replication of non-SDE geodatabases, to keep to keep a child geodatabase synced with a parent geodatabase. I will illustrate how to create a data structure around the creation of a map and using ETL processes developed in Python to keep parent/child geodatabases synced.
