  • Case Study
    Pacific Hydro

    Our Vision: Powering a cleaner world
  • IT Systems
    SharePoint 2007 operating since 2009
    Operating GIS server (esri) since 2009
  • Limitations of current system
    The current GIS Server based system has the following disadvantages:
    Only GIS personnel can access geospatial data
    GIS personnel are required to produce large quantities of maps and plans with a large amount of replication
    Departments are not aware of updates to geospatial data and may be using obsolete data
    Updated information is provided to GIS personnel on an irregular basis
  • Limitations of current system
    The current SharePoint system has the following disadvantages:
    Documents cannot be searched spatially or by individual asset
    Multiple documents for an individual asset or geographic location must be searched individually and often within different document libraries
    Spatial relationships between documents cannot be viewed
    Spatial information stored within documents cannot be analysed
  • Key objectives
    Staff to be able to view current spatial data
    To be able to search for documents stored in SharePoint spatially by asset or location
    Spatially enable existing data for analysis
  • Constraints
    The GIS team in both Melbourne and Chile is small and do not want to create additional work
    Majority of staff company wide do not have GIS background therefore need to create a system that is user friendly
    Solution Design: Selection of Visual Fusion to link SharePoint and GIS
  • 1st objective : staff viewing gis data
    GIS data stored within geodatabases can be viewed in mapping interface within SharePoint
    Staff can view the location of assets and when selecting assets view additional information stored within the geodatabase
    Unlike other internet mapping solutions, any data updated within the geodatabase is immediately reflected in the mapping interface
  • 1st objective – staff viewing gis data
  • 1st objective – staff viewing gis data
  • Key advantages
    Adding value to spatial data
    Providing company wide access to spatial information
    Allowing individual departments to be informed
    Improve decision making
  • 2ndobjective: spatially Search documents
    Document filtered search is limited by metadata assigned
    Large quantity of documents specific to individual assets or a particular geographic location
    Metadata field created to link documents to assets stored within GIS geodatabase
  • 2ndobjective: spatially Search documents
  • 2ndobjective: spatially Search documents
  • Key advantages
    Improving document search functionality
    Improving efficiency and workflows
    Providing user friendly interface for document searches
  • 3rd Objective: spatially enable data
    Health and Safety Incident Data stored within Excel Spreadsheets
    Data moved to SharePoint List and location coordinates added (Latitude/Longitude)
    Staff able to analyse incidents by location and categories to help prevent further incidents
  • 3rd Objective: spatially enable data
  • Key advantages
    Spatially enabling existing information
    Allow spatial and temporal analysis of data
    Improve decision making
  • Next steps
    Development projects to be included in system
    Reporting tools for Health and Safety Incident data
    Sustainability reporting
  • Demonstration
    Visualising your business data in Sharepoint
  • Demonstration
    SharePoint Lists & Libraries(Excel, SHP, Images, Documents, Forms)
    Feeds(KML, ATOM, GeoRSS, & WMS)
    Bing Maps Web Services
    Oracle, ArcSDE, SharePoint BCS & BDC
    Custom
    LOB Systems & Web Services (via SDK)
    SQL Server
