Hello everyone!


I need your help about the routing feature (Android) provided by ESRI. I have seen the routing sample app:


and got the data from


This sample app runs fine. The sample data contains .geodatabase file and .tn folder for routing, and locator files for geocoding. Now i need your help to know:


1.  The difference between .gdb files and .geodatabase files?

2.  How to create the .geodatabase file (which tool is required)?

3.  What type of files .tn (transportation network) folder contains, and how to create them?


Any sort of help is highly appreciated. My questions may seem stupid but I am newbie to GIS but obviously the GIS team will create these files for me if i tell them the software and procedure.


Thank you so much in advance for your help and patience as well!
