1. A geo-database is part of a geo-information system (GIS). It collects spatial data, which can be used later for analysis and presentation. The essential basis of each geo-database is the object-rela- tional data model usual for such systems. In a digital way, this maps space-related data, processes and objects, and converts these into the corresponding relations.
2. A geodatabase is a database designed to store, query, and manipulate geographic information and spatial data. It is also known as a spatial database.
