  • 1. Connect to the world around you GIS for Utilities A map was once a simple piece of paper. Its information was limited by time and scale. With the proliferation of various technologies that we live with today, things have changed. A map is now a living document. And as the world changes, your maps adapt. Global trends like smartphones, context- and location-based search, climate change, and such advancements have brought GIS to the cross-roads of various technology lanes. And this is only the tip of the iceberg. Experts say that 70-80 per cent of all forms of data/information in this world possess some geographical reference and GIS becomes immediately relevant here. Matured IT standards have expanded the scope of GIS across many applications. The global GIS engineering applications market will see double digit growth till 2016, as per the Geospatial Today magazine. Our GIS practice combines the power of GIS technology with extensive domain knowledge to develop powerful spatial technology solutions. At our GIS group, we are constantly striving to provide innovative solutions that solve your problems by leveraging our multiple years of GIS, IT and vertical play. Be it the operational improvement of public utilities, network planning, logistics optimization or vehicle telematics applications, we pride ourselves on having worked with some of the world's best organizations and governments. For example, the world's second biggest Municipal Corporation and India's largest corporate group have been our clients. Welcome to the GIS world of Tech Mahindra! Connect to the world around you

  • 3. Case Studies Case Study 1: PUB, Singapore Brief: Real time data integration with GIS PUB is Singapore's national water agency. PUB is responsible for the collection, production, distribution and reclamation of water in Singapore. PUB collects rainwater from canals, rivers and streams in 17 reservoirs across the country. All reservoirs are linked to enable pumping water from one reservoir to another. The water is then piped to waterworks for treatment before being distributed to citizens around the country. Used water is then collected through an extensive sewerage system and treated at water reclamation plants. PUB required the ability to monitor water levels in real time. They also required a web application that citizens could use to monitor water levels. We designed and implemented a comprehensive GIS based solution for PUB: • Developed a GIS based dashboard using ESRI ArcGIS • Integrated real time data captured from water level sensors throughout the country • Integrated with OneMap GIS platform for base map visualization instead of Google Maps • Integrated the GIS system to a messaging system for generating alerts • The application included an archive feature where citizens could see a history of recorded events We used the following tools for the project: • OneMap GIS platform • ArcGIS Integrated camera feed to the application Real time data availability to both officials and citizens Automatic alert generation when water reaches threshold levels Reduced time to take effective decisions during flash floods Highlights Case Study 2: San Diego Water Department, USA Brief: SPLASH upgrade The San Diego Water Department serves more than 1.3 million people over more than 200 square miles of developed land. In addition to three water treatment plants, San Diego maintains and operates more than 3,302 miles of water lines, 49 water pump plants, 90+ pressure zones, and more than 200 million gallons of potable water storage capacity in 32 standpipes, elevated tanks and reservoirs. GE had deployed SPLASH, a Smallworld GIS based application, at the San Diego Water Department, USA. The primary requirements for GE from us were: • Study and understand SPLASH 4.0 and SPLASH 4.1 • Test the application • Configure the application • Prepare user manuals Our consultant worked with a GE consultant at the client location to test the application. Following three rounds of testing, the service was extended by another four weeks, over the initial three weeks. During the testing, we identified 86 defects, including several core defects. All defects were logged and they assisted developers in identifying and resolving problems in the application, ensuring that the final delivery was bug free. We also prepared 30 user manuals that were delivered to the customer on time. We used the following tools: • Smallworld 4.0 and 4.1 • VSS Highlights SPLASH stores and allows administrators to see facts, figures and graphical information about water, reclaimed water and wastewater facilities for the city of San Diego Tested and identified 86 defects Prepared 30 user manuals for the application
  • 4. Case Study 3: Indraprastha Gas Brief: Smallworld implementation Indraprastha Gas was set up in 1998 to manage the Delhi City Gas Distribution Project. Initially, the company was formed to lay the network for the distribution of natural gas in the National Capital Territory of New Delhi to consumers in the domestic, transport and commercial sectors. The company primarily caters to the transport sector that uses Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), the domestic and commercial sectors that use Piped Natural Gas (PNG) and the industrial sector that uses R-LNG. Indraprastha Gas required a GIS based asset and network management solution that was capable of delivering multiple benefits. The primary requirements for the customer were that the GIS solution must: • Help manage assets effectively • Optimize network design • Strengthen marketing efforts • Improve customer service • Build new efficiencies into the workflow Our team implemented a client-server and Internet based GIS solution for the customer. The solution features a flezxible and scalable open architecture. We created the data model for the solution and captured and migrated the land base and gas network data into Smallworld. Additionally, the solution was integrated with SynerGEE Gas for network analysis, which allowed data queries from the Internet to prepare charts, graphs and SynerGEE interexchange. Several existing AutoCAD files were also migrated to Smallworld as part of the implementation. We used the following tools: • Smallworld • SynerGEE Gas • SIAS • Magik Highlights Efficiently analyze and manage network assets Improved data maintenance Improved platform for all other enterprise wide applications Simplest way to locate network objects along with spatial information Spatial info used to strengthen marketing efforts in untapped neighborhoods About Tech Mahindra Tech Mahindra represents the connected world, offering innovative and customer-centric information technology services and solutions, enabling Enterprises, Associates and the Society to Rise™.
