We have a QGIS project that has symbols for a lot of different lines. Data comes from a geodatabase that is accessible to both QGIS and ArcGIS.

We now want to use the symbology of the QGIS project to style the features in the ArcGIS project.

My first approach was to use SLDs. The QGIS style can be exported to SLD easily, but how can you style your features according to a SLD using ArcGIS?

Setting up a simple WMS does not suffice, both QGIS and ArcGIS need editing capabilities on the features.

If one could provide a SLD with a WFS (in a ESRI-readable way) that would also be a possibility. Have found nothing for that, either.

This may not be what you want to hear but I think the best chance you have of having ArcGIS for Desktop read SLD files will be to vote for this ArcGIS Idea.

Its proposer says:

It would be a great interoperability improvement to be able to import SLD styles into *.style files and vice versa.
