Adding a new data model (Production Mapping)
If your data model is not in the product library, you need to add it. When you create a new data model, you need to provide the following information:
- Name—The name of the data model you are adding
- Alias—An abbreviated name for the data model
- Description—A short description of the data model (If you have used an acronym for the name or alias, you can spell out the meaning of the acronym for the description.)
- Start ArcMap.
If necessary, open the Product Library window by clicking Customize > Production > Product Library on the main menu.
A tree view of the product library appears.
Right-click Data Models on the window and click New Data Model.
The New Data Model dialog box appears.
Type the name of the data model in the Name text box.
This is also the name that appears next to the data model version.
- If necessary, type an alias for the data model in the Alias text box.
If necessary, type a description of the data model in the Description text box.
This can be a brief description of the data model or the meaning of an acronym that has been used as the name or alias.
- Click OK.
The new data model appears in the Product Library tree view.
Once a data model is created, you can view its properties, name, alias and description, by right-clicking the data model and clicking Data Model Properties.
