Sparx Systems partners with Esri to support ArcGIS
Sparx Systems has partnered with Esri Inc. (Environmental Systems Research Institute) as a Network Partner to deliver cutting-edge geospatial solutions based on Esri technology. Since version 9.3, Enterprise Architect has featured an ArcGIS plug-in developed in conjunction with CSIRO. This feature which supports the creation of visual UML models of ArcGIS geodatabases, is proving popular within the global geospatial community. Visualizing geodatabase designs, facilitates traceability of geospatial systems to the broader enterprise model, communicates geospatial design concepts to a wide audience of stakeholders and leverages model driven architecture.

Model Organization with Packages and the Package Diagram
It is no coincidence that the package element in UML is represented by a folder icon, similar to directories in a file system Graphical User Interface (GUI). Packages are used to organize the elements of a model just as folders are used to organize files. The contents of a package are any kind of element that is part of a model, including other packages.
