Subject: [OSGeo Africa] Geodatabases ( again ! )
Greetings all , ( those still checking their mail )
OK So here I am -- my HP Microserver with 16Gb of RAM and 8 TB RAID
storage is nearly ready to go.
I know nothing about it , but would like to learn about Geodatabases --
what do I install ?
MS SQL Server 2012 Express
ArcGIS Server for Workgroups
( I am at an Tertiary Educational facility )
I like the idea of a server-client setup ( I have my own network )
My client will be ArcGIS 10.2 / QGIS 2.x
I do not mind the blood , sweat and tears of new experiences /
experimentation -- as long as I have some good documentation.
As far as I can work out there is still no direct support that enables
the ESRI storage types ( geometries ) to work with other FOSSGeo
databases ? ie read AND edit.
Ideally I would like the database to reside on it's own dedicated machine
and the client likewise and then communicate / pull data over the Gig
network. I only need the capability of a few connections / users ( a
workgroup type setup )
I know Gavin runs courses with UP for this type of thing but I am in KZN.
( and after spending all the bucks on the hardware not much left over )
Any suggestions ( with plusses and cons re the different options )
