We are experts at migrating and validating data from existing mapping systems into an ArcFM Geodatabases, and our rates are some of the best in the industry!
Data sources within a utility organization, both GIS and non-GIS data sources, are built in many ways and grow along many paths. We will seamlessly incorporate them into your GIS.
We specialize in Data Modeling, Data Migration Design, and Quality Assurance for GIS projects, which are critical tasks to insure a successful and accurate GIS implementation.
ArcFM Valve Isolation tracing provides very valuable functionality. If you don't have all the data it expects, here's a way to simulate it.
Migrating AutoCAD or Microstation data into ArcFM has been done many times, and can be straightforward. But usually the best results come with thoughtful preparation.
In most cases you would expect an ArcFM CP trace include all connected CP features. This entry describes a case where you may not.
When CenterPoint Energy adopted Schneider Electric’s Designer Express for gas distribution construction design, replacing previously used CAD-based software tools, they still needed to provide CAD drawing products to both external and internal customers. The solution was the ArcGIS/ArcFM-based CAD Converter tools. CenterPoint has built standard mapping configurations (or ‘profiles’) defining detailed mappings from dozens of feature classes to corresponding CAD entity types, layers and layer properties. The standard configurations are used repeatedly by designers to generate CAD drawings that faithfully reproduce feature geometries, map symbology and annotation. Particularly important for CenterPoint is that CAD Converter also exports both data view and layout view graphic elements.
CAD Converter is also considered an essential tool used daily by the CenterPoint Landbase group for importing detailed new plat information from developers. Just as with the export process, profiles can be established to map source CAD layers to target ArcGIS feature classes.
Before the Designer Express rollout, we were using CAD Converter to export and import Landbase layers to perform Landbase work within AutoCAD software. Currently CAD Converter is used by our Gas Designers and Landbase group. CAD Converter is “essential” to our Landbase editors. Cynthia Salas, Centerpoint Energy
