Converts a .CSV to a geodatabase feature class.

Used to periodically load automatically-generated spreadsheet data into an ArcSDE database; can also be used with local (file) geodatabases.

When used with a web-based spreadsheet template (containing "Long" and "Lat" fields) that is rendered to .CSV, this allows spreadsheet users to automatically generate updates for live maps.
