ArcGIS Mobile 10 Gas Leak Detection Application by Grontmij and Esri NL

  1. 1. ArcGIS Mobile – Gas leak detection<br />
  2. 2. 2<br />Introduction<br />Delta Infra is a service provider for the Delta Network Company (DNWB), the industry and other network operators. The tasks they perform are mainly related to maintaining and inspecting these networks.<br />For the inspection of their gas line network, walking routes are defined. Using sophisticated detection equipment they search for possible gas leaks in their network. To aid them with this task Esri Netherland and Grontmij have developed a mobile application based on ArcGIS Mobile 10.<br />
  3. 3. 3<br />Initial settings<br />The first time the application is started, the user will have to enter the specifications of the detection equipment used for the fieldwork. This meta information is stored for later reference.<br />
  4. 4. 4<br />Full extent<br />The application starts with the full extent of the province of Zeeland (the Netherlands).<br />
  5. 5. 5<br />Zoom in to detailed area <br />The user zooms in to the area (or uses the GPS position); gas pipes and house connections become visible.<br />
  6. 6. 6<br />Register observations<br />When an observation needs to be registered the user will have the choice between a gas leak or an obstacle.<br />
  7. 7. 7<br />Location<br />A gas leak detection location (or an obstacle) can be drawn on the map or can be defined by the GPS coordinates.<br />
  8. 8. 8<br />Specify attributes<br />After the location has been defined all the attributes are specified. Address and pipeline data are automatically filled in based on the location.<br />
  9. 9. 9<br />Type 1 gas leak<br />In case of a gas leak of type 1 (severe) the application sends an email containing the address and an image of the location on the map for immediate action.<br />
  10. 10. 10<br />Progress of fieldwork<br />When the observation of (a part of) the street has been finalized, the street is registered as "checked" and the symbology is changed automatically. This provides the necessary feedback to the fieldworker with respect to the area processed.<br />
  11. 11. 11<br />Connection to Diasys<br />The ArcGIS mobile application is connected to the Diasys application containing high detailed house connection drawings. When a detailed sketch is requested this is registered in the ArcGIS mobile application for later reference.<br />
