Managing Massive Updates - Using GIS to Fuel Gas Compliance
Track: Pipeline and Gas Utilities
Authors: Jill Gehrig, Skye Perry
NIPSCO was required to undergo massive data updates to their GIS to meet new gas regulation. A series of projects allowed for the rectification of all gas transmission assets and the manual update of system-wide records to accommodate the requirements. SSP technology was implemented to allow for outsourced updates to be replayed into the versioned production GIS while maintaining fulltime day-to-day editing. This provided maximum flexibility while minimizing downtime and any performance impact.
