At my workplace we use Trimble GeoXT GPS devices or similar with CartoPac installed for GPS feature data collection. We have not used Trimble Pathfinder for several years.
For a few projects, we have been hiring 3rd party contractors to do our GPS/surveying work. One company we have hired uses software called BlueSky, and we were able to give them a copy of our SDE geodatabase schema for them to generate their GPS data collection forms to match our data collection standards. Another company we have hired seems to be using Trimble Pathfinder and requested that we provide them with a .ddf (data dictionary file) so that they could generate the .fxl (feature code library file) needed for their GPS data collection forms.
Each company will be providing deliverables in the the form of a file geodatabase at the end of the projects.
My question is: Is there a way to generate a data dictionary file (.ddf) or feature code library file (.fxl) from an existing geodatabase in ArcGIS? The third party company that requested this file indicated that it would be too much work to create these manually based on the geodatabase schema that we sent them.
