About the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for Desktop tutorial

The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for Desktop tutorial introduces you to the tools and functionality that are available in ArcGIS for Desktop when the extension is enabled. It is divided into three sections that guide you through direct-read formats and interoperability connections, quick conversion tools, and the fundamentals of transforming data using FME Workbench.

The exercises within each section demonstrate concepts and methods sequentially and therefore should be completed in the order they are presented. They are designed to allow you to work at your own pace without additional assistance using Esri ArcTutor sample data.

You will need about 30–40 minutes of focused time to complete all the exercises.

Tutorial data

This tutorial assumes you have installed the Esri ArcTutor data at C:\arcgis\ArcTutor\Data Interoperability. If not, make the appropriate path changes throughout this tutorial. Ask your system administrator for the correct path to the tutorial data if you do not find it at the default installation path.
