Charlotte County Enterprise GIS Implementation/GIS Spatial Assessment

Jones Edmunds developed a comprehensive geodatabase of Charlotte County Utilities’ (CCU) water, reclaimed water, and wastewater networks. The effort involved geodatabase design and data migration (from AutoCAD and several non-spatial data sources) as well as utility-wide field data collection. The resulting work products also serve as a cornerstone for the County’s asset and work order management system, DataStream. The following steps were required to develop and deploy the CCU water/wastewater (W/WW) geodatabase:
  • Project Initiation and Data Research
  • Geodatabase Design and Development
  • Including conducting Geodatabase Workshops with CCU
  • Migration Plan and Protocol
  • Data Migration
  • Field Data Collection (Sub-Foot GPS) – 19,000 Points
  • Horizontal Adjustment
  • Application Development Feasibility Analysis
  • Including developing a CAD Data-Migration Tool
  • Final Geodatabase Spatial Refinement
  • Including developing a fully connected geometric network
  • Geodatabase Implementation
  • Develop Standard Operating Procedures (Office and Field)
  • Provide Training
Jones Edmunds deployed an Enterprise Geodatabase and provided CCU with the tools and training to further maintain and develop their W/WW data. The developed Standard Operating Procedures provided CCU with a detailed and repeatable approach to continue field data collection efforts along with desktop data integration and editing of Geographic Information System data. The W/WW geodatabase has been integrated with the DataStream product to allow work orders to be issued against W/WW facilities in the geodatabase, resulting in an Enterprise solution for Charlotte County Utilities.

St. Augustine Geodatabase Implementation

High-tech GIS is thriving in a city founded in 1565. The quaint historic city of St. Augustine, Florida is running today on geospatial information that enhances operations, improves decision making, and provides better public service. The city needed a technology enhancement by converting from a personal geodatabase for their GIS to one based on central enterprise. Jones Edmunds was selected to put together a plan and a strategy for implementation. To begin this information upgrade, we attended multiple on-site meetings with city personnel to discuss current work and data flows and our team delivered thorough recommendations to streamline a once cumbersome, inefficient process. After rolling out an upgrade to software, new servers, and training, St. Augustine was able to make well-informed decisions and better serve its residents as well as its many visitors.

Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority Cityworks Server Implementation and Enterprise GIS Services

Jones Edmunds was selected to support the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority (FKAA) for a multi-phase Cityworks implementation. The first phase was a utility-wide review of business processes related to GIS and work and asset management, which included discovery meetings with 10 different departments including IT, Finance, Customer Service, and their entire operations group including lift stations, wastewater collection, water distribution, fleet, and water production. FKAA has many disparate systems including their finance and customer service software (Cogsdale), Esri GIS, CCTV, and SCADA. One of the primary outcomes of the review was the need for a Cityworks integration with their Cogsdale to reconcile fixed assets, customers and meter related work orders. Phase 2, a Cityworks implementation for their linear water system, fleet, and customer service, included the Cogsdale integration. Phase 2 also included implementation of an Enterprise GIS that included GIS database re-design, deployment, and configuration to cloud servers on Azure to ensure high availability, including ArcGIS Server and Web Adaptor. Phase 3 includes an implementation of Cityworks for their wastewater and water vertical assets, technical services, engineering, and backflow prevention with integrations with SCADA and Neptune.

Gainesville Regional Utilities Water and Wastewater/ArcFM Cityworks Implementation

Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) selected Jones Edmunds to conduct a needs/workflow assessment and develop an implementation plan. This implementation plan served as the roadmap to the roll-out of Azteca Cityworks and included database design, data migration, workflow re-engineering, software implementation, and training.

In addition to the existing GIS and work-order data, the GIS-centric database design had numerous considerations to be evaluated. Several independent legacy Oracle databases had to be reconciled and migrated into a common relational database. Subsequent to the enterprise deployment of Cityworks, GRU has gained considerable benefits, including but not limited to a significant reduction of the time associated with entry, analysis, and report generation of service requests and work orders. GRU now plans to make further use of the benefits gained by the Cityworks implementation.  Jones Edmunds worked with GRU to update the initial needs assessment and implementation plan.  GRU has been improving system monitoring, planning, and proactive maintenance by further using Cityworks, saving the utility and its customers money.

Jones Edmunds helped implement an ArcFM 8.2/CityWorks 4.0-based solution for updating and maintaining the GRU Water and Wastewater Facilities Mapping and Work-Order Management Systems, converting existing coverage and hardcopy data to a GeoDatabase.  The project used a single geodatabase to support facilities management software (ArcFM 8.2), work-order management software (Azteca Systems’ CityWorks 4.0), and future applications such as hydraulic modeling.

ArcGIS and ArcFM serve as the principal mapping and data management tools for GRU’s water and wastewater infrastructure.  Existing ArcInfo coverage and hardcopy data were converted to a geodatabase that is administered by ArcSDE within Oracle.  The GDB is available to users of ArcFM and Cityworks to support facility-mapping, work-order, and facility-maintenance functions. We developed custom procedures to enable GRU staff to incorporate as-built data into the GeoDatabase—a process currently contracted out.
