UDC Presentation Schedule Set for GeoConX 2016

UDC is scheduled to make several presentations during the Esri GeoConX, Electric and Gas User Group conference in Phoenix, Arizona. We’ve shared details of those sessions below including dates and times. If you are attending this year’s Esri GeoConx conference, we’d love for you to stop in and listen. We’ll be covering a variety of GIS topics.

  • The Digital Utility™ Gas Compliance Manager™/ Managing Gas Pressure Systems in ArcGIS

    Wednesday, October 19 / 11:30 AM – 12:00 PM

    Courtroom O/P / Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort

    Gas Compliance Manager™ supports defining all survey and inspection required work for the utility, and once job types are defined, the user is able to instantiate them based on their own established work areas and flow for managing compliance programs. The single software framework contains built-in integrations for sending all created work to the utility’s scheduling and dispatching system(s) as well as capabilities to integrate with the utility’s mobile work management system and Enterprise Asset Management system. This enables full transparency by developing reports and thematic maps while using the same tool to plan, create and monitor all planned work.

  • Underground Facilities Management (UFM) for Downtown San Francisco

    Wednesday, October 19 / 2:50 PM – 3:20 PM

    Courtroom O/P / Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort

    In 2015, PG&E deployed an Esri/ArcFM based solution for managing underground facilities across the downtown San Francisco area. The data density presented unique challenges in automating the workflows to maintain data accuracy, coherent annotation and legible views of the data. This presentation will explore the complexities encountered and how they were overcome to provide an effective underground facilities management solution.

  • GIS to Schematics

    Wednesday, October 19 / 3:30 PM – 4:00 PM

    Courtroom O/P / Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort

    While recently converting their electric distribution sources, PG&E included an initiative to convert their GIS data into a standalone ArcSchematics model. The schematics model was developed to support the engineering group as well as PG&E‘s DMS outage management system and was tailored to provide a geo-schematic representation following major roadways to enhance locating of key primary system features. Software was developed to allow daily GIS updates to feed the schematics model directly thus greatly reducing latency between the two systems. Maintenance of schematics consists of daily executed minor whitespace management edits ensuring ease of use.
