My question is basically the title. If we want to implement the Utility and Pipeline Data Model (UPDM), does it have to be in its default geodatabase state or can we implement it inside of SQL Server (sde) ?
Thanks So much!
From Tom DeWitte of Esri- Thanks Tom!
The Utility and Pipeline Data Model is at its core a Geodatabase data model. Personally I have been using it within my SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Geodatabase for the last 6 months. Within the download from the ArcGIS for Gas solution site (Maintain Utility Assets | ArcGIS for Utilities ) is both a XML Import file of the geodatabase schema and a file GDB. You can use either with standard ArcCatalog tools to load into an SQL Server based Geodatabase.
