I am working on a project that requires migrating a large project/database created using
DeedMapper software over for use in ESRI's ArcGIS software, and am wondering if anyone
in this community has done this before? I am aware of the 'kml' export option in
DM, and have used that to export data that could be converted and displayed in ArcGIS.
There are a number of problems with this approach, unfortunately, including the fact that
actual polygons are not created for the tracts (I end up with a file consisting of lines,
and another of points), and the text of interest, which was entered as 'comments'
in DM, does not make its way over with the kml file, which is not a surprise. The dataset
to be migrated is pretty massive so any solution to this problem is going to need to be
efficient- in other words doing it tract by tract is not realistic. I realize this likely
an unusual request, having contacted the developers of DM and searching the archives
before posting, but figure its worth a try and maybe someone out there will have a ready
solution or helpful suggestion. Thanks for reading!
