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:
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.
