Jones Edmunds created a water utility geometric network within an ESRI enterprise geodatabase for the City of Melbourne.
This network serves as a single comprehensive database of the City’s water utility network that was assembled from the City’s various data sources. It includes scanned water utility maps, digital AutoCAD files, digital as-built drawings, GPS points, and other data sources.
The database is a robust inventory of the water utility infrastructure that can integrate into the City’s asset management system. The database can also bring all of these information sets back in line with current real-world facilities and reconciling duplicate data.
During the process, the City wanted to maintain the actual live and working/editing geodatabase on their network in ArcSDE. To accomplish this, we accessed their network remotely and performed our edits in a version of their water geodatabase.
