ArcGIS in Enterprise Architect

Enterprise Architect  provides - through the integration of MDG Technologies with the installer - the facilities of ArcGIS

ArcGIS modeling support is provided in the form of:

  • An ArcGIS diagram type, accessed through the New Diagram dialog
  • A set of ArcGIS pages in the Diagram Toolbox
  • ArcGIS element and relationship entries in the Toolbox Shortcut menu and Quick Linker

ArcGIS Toolbox Pages

The ArcGIS Toolbox contains three pages:

  • Core  - for elements
  • Relationships - for connectors
  • Supported Types - for Attributes and elements

Disable ArcGIS

If you prefer not to use ArcGIS in Enterprise Architect, you can disable it (and subsequently re-enable it) using the MDG Technologies dialog (Settings | MDG Technologies)

Description

Elements

ArcGIS Workspace

The geodatabase workspace package, which holds all the ArcGIS modeling elements

Export the contents of this package to produce the Geodatabase XML Workspace Document, which can be imported to ESRI ArcCatalog

Feature Dataset

A stereotyped package that holds or organizes the Feature Classes with the same spatial reference

The Feature Dataset is only created under the ArcGIS Workspace package; it can not be created under another Feature Dataset package

Raster Dataset

A stereotyped package that holds or organizes the raster data (as Raster Band elements; see below)

Feature Class

An extended UML Class, representing a collection of geographic features with the same geometry type, the same attributes and the same spatial reference

Five types of Feature Class have been defined in Enterprise Architect:

  • Point Feature Class
  • Polyline Feature Class
  • Polygon Feature Class
  • Multipatch Feature Class
  • Dimension Feature Class

Object Class

An extended UML Class, representing a collection of nonspatial data of the same type or Class

Geometric Network

An extended UML Class, used to model the network system

Raster Band

An extended UML Class, representing one layer of a matrix of cell values

Every Raster Dataset contains one or more Raster Bands

Raster Catalog

An extended UML Class, representing a collection of Raster Datasets in the geodatabase

SubType Class

An extended UML Class, holding a subset of the attributes of a Feature Class element

Coded Value Domain

An extended UML Class, representing a set of valid values that might apply to any type of attribute

Range Domain

An extended UML Class, representing  a valid range of numeric values that might apply to a numeric type of attribute

Relationships

Subtype

An extended UML Association, providing the relationship between a Feature Class element and a SubType Class element

RelationshipClass

An extended UML Association, providing the relationship between:

  • Two Feature Class elements, or
  • A Feature Class element and an Object Class element

RelationshipClass

An extended UML Association Class, providing the attributed relationship between:

  • Two Feature Class elements, or
  • A Feature Class element and an Object Class element

UML Association

A normal UML Association

UML Composition
