In our office, we got a large set of MapInfo TAB files, and are planning to migrate those data to ArcGIS GDB with the same symbology available in the TAB file.
On a individual TAB file to GDB, we can do it like:
- Import data from TAB A to GDB A using Data Interoperability, by its corresponding CRS.
- Then adding GDB A's featureclass to ArcMap and "load symbology from TAB file" using TAB Reader though unique data
- Then save applied symbology to ".lyr" file or converting them to "Representation".
The following figure explain the workflow, not the model builder.
To convert hundreds of TAB files is taking a lot of time. So, I thought of doing with coding or model builder. Since I am very poor with Python or any other coding, I am going with model builder. The problem arises when I tried to load symbology from TAB file. Could any one help me out in this regard?
