"How Utilities Can Spend Half the Time on the System Base Map and Have Infinitely Better Data Quality and Availability"

Your existing data is what it is. However, how effectively you update and improve your data determines the data quality and currency. This has a significant impact on the operational efficiency of your organization. This presentation shows how a tried and tested solution based on OpenGIS data standards delivers tools that enable you to work smarter not harder and deliver a completely attributed and connected system base map in half the time it usually takes. The positive impact on your organization has far reaching effects financially and operationally.

"Integrating Scanned As-built Plans as GIS Reference Data"

As-built drawings and record plans are typically scanned and archived as the data of record for utility and infrastructure projects. However, just archiving the documents still creates an issue when anyone needs to know what was done where, when and by whom. Without a good system in place it takes time to find the data of record in any given area. This presentation reviews the challenges faced by a number of organizations and a solution used to register as-built plans with the system base map thereby ensuring that engineers can simply select any area and see all the relevant projects and record plans.

"Utilizing Oracle Spatial to Integrate AutoCAD and ArcGIS"

Most organizations today need to work with spatial data in various different formats ranging from scanned plans to design drawings to proprietary GIS files. By sharing a central database different departments can effectively share data with each other without the constant need for data conversion and data updates. One of the biggest advantages of this approach is that the latest information is always readily available. This demonstration will show how Oracle Spatial can be used as the central data store for both AutoCAD and ArcGIS and how edits from one system is immediately available in the other.
