Project Title: Design and Implementation of a User Friendly Geodatabase System for the State of Texas
Semester: Spring 2006
Committe Chair: Dr. Dulal C. Kar
Committee Member 1: Dr. Joseph C. Loon
Committee Member 2: Dr David R. Thomas
Project Description: An efficient GIS application requires a geodatabase, which not only provides different layers of geographical datasets but also provides the facility to handle rich data types and sophisticated rules for business logic. Geodatabase design is based on geographic representations consisting of organized thematic layers. There is no existing application for the custom specific settings of the developed Texas census geodatabase. The census geodatabase for the State of Texas using Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) has been developed and a windows application with user interface using Visual Studio .NET 2003 ,Visual Basic .NET and Crystal Reports has been developed. This project helps students to understand the design implementation of the developed census geodatabase and also helps students to easily and flexibly retrieve, and update census data for the state of Texas.
