I am wondering if it is possible to use a SQLite for multiple editors in ArcGIS Desktop?

  • ArcGIS 10.1
  • Small team, only five editors for now.
  • Shared network drive

Need a quick and solution due to governance and budget constraints while waiting for funding for a real SQL environment and IT team.

    SQLite support wasn't included in ArcGIS until 10.2. Even at 10.3, it is NOT multi-user. Non-enterprise geodatabase support was added for PostgreSQL at ArcGIS 10.4.

    Sql server express is free and supports this function. It is available for download from myEsri. The desktop client Will need an editor license level. Oct 30 '16 at 23:26

    @BenSNadler I believe you also need a ArcGIS for Server Workgroup license to allow more than one editor with SQL Express. The out-of-the-box db license allows three simultaneous users but only one can edit (unless things have changed here)

    No, a SQL-Server Express geodatabase for five editors is not free. The Workgroup license covers up to 10 users, but is still restricted to one CPU (possibly up to 4 cores with modern Express, but the build compatible with 10.1 is not modern)

    Technically the database platform is free, but yes, Esri licensing does apply. I would talk to your esri rep and see if they can help you. Oct 31 '16 at 8:40
