Intro to Tabular Database Management

The information which describes and quantifies spatial features in the ARC/INFO GIS is stored in INFO files and, optionally, in external database management system (DBMS) tables.

INFO is a totally stand alone relational database management system exclusively dedicated to Arc/INFO.

Each ARC/INFO module (Arc, ArcEdit, ArcPlot, Tables, INFO) provides some tools for managing and changing these tables

There are two types of attribute tables:  feature attribute tables and related tables.

Feature attribute tables are generated by the ARC/INFO software when you create a feature class topology, and must be in INFO file format (discussed in depth in first lecture);

Related attribute tables can be either INFO files or external DBMS tables.
