Activating a BIS geodatabase connection (Bathymetry Solution)

You may find that your bathymetry data would be better managed in multiple BIS geodatabases. You can manage connections to BIS geodatabases with the Manage Connections tool. The tool lists the BIS geodatabases that you are currently managing and displays their BIS settings information. The tool recognizes ArcSDE and file geodatabase types.

Within the Manage Connections dialog box, you can activate a particular BIS geodatabase, remove a BIS geodatabase from your management list, give your BIS geodatabase a local alias, and connect to a BIS geodatabase stored locally or on your network. If you are working with multiple BIS geodatabases, you may want to activate one or another at different times. You can activate a given BIS to use ArcGIS for Maritime:Bathymetry tools with data referenced by that BIS.

  1. Start ArcMap.
  2. On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Bathymetry.
  3. Click the Manage Connections button Manage Connections on the Bathymetry toolbar.
