Understand from ArcGIS website that we can use feature dataset to group together related feature classes.
Is it possible to have another feature dataset in another feature dataset? Understand that there is a performance issue if we have too many things under one feature dataset, but at this point, it is very unlikely to have a lot of accessing the dataset once it is added.
The scenario that I tried to achieve:
1. Have a Report and archive feature dataset to group reports and archives.
2. In each of this feature dataset, it will be further grouped by different category.
Report Dataset Report Type A Dataset Report October 2014 Feature Class Report November 2014 Feature Class
Archive Dataset Report Type A Dataset Report October 2013 Feature Class Report November 2013 Feature Class
If it is not possible, any other suggestion to achieve this? For example: Create a folder instead of Feature dataset. (Heard that there is a way to do this using ArcGIS command line tools?)
