I have a fairly large file geodatabase in ArcGIS 10.1 containing both vector and raster datasets. Generally, I only want to work on a small extent at a time. Is it possible to clip a geodatabase to a smaller extent to reduce its size on disk?
There's a post about it from June 2013. Andy writes:
I thought about geoprocessing environment 'Output Extent', but that does not clip, rather processes features that pass within the extent.
