Geodatabase design using open standards
Enterprise Architect supports the design of geodatabases for the ArcGIS 10.0 suite of tools developed by Esri Inc.
As a standards-based modeling environment, Enterprise Architect empowers geospatial domain experts:
Visual modeling of geospatial databases can help to improve productivity. Enterprise Architect now includes Sparx Systems' UML profile for ArcGIS. Simply drag and drop ArcGIS feature types onto a diagram and visually connect these elements, just as you would for a UML Class diagram. Then leverage Enterprise Architect's built-in schema generator to create an ArcGIS workspace from your model. Document once and eliminate manual implementation!
You can also work in reverse. If you have a legacy geospatial database that you need to visualize, simply import the XML workspace document that contains the ArcGIS schema, and Enterprise Architect will do the rest. You'll have a visual model of your geodatabase, based on industry-standard UML notation.
You can easily navigate reverse engineered geodatabase models using built-in tools, such as Enterprise Architect's Pan & Zoom view and the model search facility.

Support for modeling ArcGIS databases in Enterprise Architect was developed in collaboration with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), who defined mappings between UML 2 and ArcGIS concepts, and prototyped an automated import and export capability for ArcGIS geodatabase schemas represented in UML.
