I am making a demo database for property search web app. I want to insert fake names (Ethiopian names), geographical location, and other user information.

How can I populate the fields with fake data in ArcGIS 10.3 automatically?

I know this is possible in python Faker library.

Or from watching smart TV don't they collect humongous data?

  • I would imagine that an InsertCursor and the Python's random would play a part in any code snippet that you test and present. – PolyGeo Apr 17 at 12:36
  • Generating fake data, especially fake textual data is far more difficult than loading real data. ArcGIS provides plenty of tools for the latter, but not much for the former. – Vince Apr 17 at 13:59
  • The solution I came up with was three_bed_room_winners.pdf from City of Addis Ababa condominium winners, Amharic names. – Kaleab May 11 at 5:53
