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.
In a previous post on GIS data quality required to support an ADMS implementation we posed the question "How Good Is Good Enough?" This post digs in to some more of the detail needed to answer that question.
Management of proposed equipment may seem straightforward but can complicated quickly. However, just because its complicated doesn't mean its not a requirement. This post outlines some considerations.
As we've addressed in previous posts, ArcGIS Archiving provides value you can't get any other way with the core technology. This post offers a few notes of caution to be aware of before you jump.
As ADMS tecnology increases in popularity so must GIS data quality improve to support it. This is the first post in a series where we explore GIS-ADMS data quality needs.
In early 2013 Midcontinent Communications selected the Schneider Electric (SE) Fiber Manager to replace a legacy GIS application for managing their fiber optic network assets that extend over much of north central United States. Particularly important to Midcontinent was the ability for Fiber Manager to support Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) and to easily report all circuits present on all strands and all wavelengths for a given fiber cable.
SE provided implementation and training and Blair Services was contracted for data migration. Working closely with the teams from SE and Midcontinent, Blair Services helped decipher the largely undocumented source data structures and align it to Fiber Manager requirements. The result was a full migration of source database features into Fiber Manager with leased circuits tracing as expected within the original project scope and budget.
Midcontinent Communications was able to work closely with Blair Services to perform a complex data migration in a relatively short time frame. Blair Services’ ability to be flexible with the project timeline, provide a high level of expertise, and deliver quality migrated data, enabled this conversion project to be successful. I would highly recommend the use of Blair Services to any company looking to perform this type of data migration. Derek Reickmann, Project Manager, Midcontinent Communications
