Question

Is it possible to export feature collections to a file geodatabase directly in ArcGIS Online?

Answer

It is not possible to export a feature collection item directly to a file geodatabase. However, a feature collection can be published as a hosted feature service and the hosted feature service can then be exported to a file geodatabase. The steps are described below:

  1. In ArcGIS Online, go to Content.
  2. Click the feature collection item to open its Item Details page.
  3. Click Publish to create a feature service.

    Click Publish
  4. In Content, browse to the feature service item to open the Item Details page.
  5. Click Export Data > Export to FGDB. This opens the Export to File Geodatabase window.

Click Export

  1. Specify the title and tags, and click Export.
  2. A file geodatabase item is created in Content which can then be downloaded
