I have approximately 60 shapefile I use. As of right now, they are all in one geodatabase.  I was wondering if there is a rule of thumb for when to create a new geodatabae?


Within my one geodatabase, I have multiple feature classes that could be categorized into something completely different.  For example, I have fiber optics within my geodatabase that also contains the downguy locations for utility poles.


Should I continue to keep everything in one geodatabase or start to create multiple ones and grouping the feature classes within those?




Thank you for your advice!
