We are currently working on a complete redesign of our geodatastores. I have to say that their evolution took more than 20 years till now. We identified the following key features in geospatial data management: simultaneous editing permissions to read or write portions of data hot update while running services that rely on data (Transactions and ACID ...

Check out X-Ray, a nice set of tools for looking at structures (and differences) of MXDs and geodatabases. See links below. The tools were developed by the ESRI Local Government Data model group for working with the large municipal basemap datasets and mxds they work with but have been released for general use, and looks like is very useful add-in when ...

Coordinating data from several sources is complicated. Your ability to "coach" the organizations you are referring to will be put to a test. How do you plan on resolving data conflicts? Are you in a position to put forward clear mandates to the participating organizations? What is your mandate in all this? What are your resourceS? Etc... I have looked ...

You could try and use a version control system like mercurial to keep track of the mxd file, but this can be troublesome. Maybe switching to a scripting language like R or python ...

From the problem description you gave I assume you used the OSGEO4W setup installer, which installs everything inside C:\OSGEO4W. You can safely remove that folder, or install QGIS 2.2 standalone from the source you mentioned in parallel. That will go into C:\Program files\, and it will never be updated until you remove it manually. Plugins are stored in ...

I manage a particularly large mxd (dozens of groups and layers) in a multi-user environment that necessitates changes fairly frequently. We used to track changes in a simple .txt file, stored in the same directory but this was inefficient. Instead, I now have created a table in a geodatabase with fields to track version changes. The mxd simply references ...

Versioning of MXDs is currently possible in third party software. One which I know works is more of a CAD package called Projectwise. However, it apparently doesn't support 10.1 yet (this is second hand kmowledge so don't quote me on that).
