Transcript

  • 1. Designing a GIS-CentricEnvironmental DataManagement System (EDMS)Bruce Taylor
  • 2. 2Overview• A Complex System• Requirements, Requirements, Requirements• Evaluating Alternatives• Designing a Solution
  • 3. 3A Complex System• 17 Datasets• 6 major reports• Multiple departments• Multiple databases and applicationsincluding Cityworks and GIS• Multiple users• Overlapping functionality
  • 4. 4Background• Stormwater Utility– Reporting and Management Drivers• Mature enterprise systems– GIS, EAMS (Cityworks), CIS, ERP• Multiple “Ad Hoc” applications• Big question: what type of system will fillthe gaps?
  • 5. 7Requirements, Requirements…• Fixed budget, can’t do everything• What is really needed?• What are the priorities• How does GIS fit in?
  • 6. 8Requirements Development• 123 Distinct Functional Requirements– E.g., workflow, reports, notifications, etc.• 52 Non-Functional Requirements– E.g., database, software versions, etc.• Categorization and Prioritization
  • 7. 10COTS Evaluation• What are the costs?• What are the benefits?– Process improvement– Alignment with requirements
  • 8. 11Apples and Oranges• Disparate Systems– CMMS / EAMS– EDMS– Stormwater Permitting Systems– LIMS
  • 9. 14And the results are in…• COTS solution: Cityworks– Infrastructure and Facility Inspections– Workflow• Custom Application– Stream Sampling– Data Validation and Analysis– Data Import– Reporting and Data Warehouse
  • 10. 15Preliminary Design• Key Functionality– Data Entry– Sample Event Tracking– Data Import and Validation– Document Management– Reporting and Analysis– Dashboards• SharePoint• GIS Mapping and Reporting
  • 11. 17GIS Integration• ArcGIS Server Data Publication• ArcGIS Geolist Web Part
  • 12. 19Summary• From Complexity to Elegance• Cost-Effective Solution• Best of COTS and Custom• Best of Breed Technologies– SharePoint– GIS Web Parts– Flexible, Scalable
  • 13. Thank You
