Designing a gis centric environmental data management system

  1. 1. Designing a GIS-CentricEnvironmental DataManagement System (EDMS)Bruce Taylor
  2. 2. 2Overview• A Complex System• Requirements, Requirements, Requirements• Evaluating Alternatives• Designing a Solution
  3. 3. 3A Complex System• 17 Datasets• 6 major reports• Multiple departments• Multiple databases and applicationsincluding Cityworks and GIS• Multiple users• Overlapping functionality
  4. 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. 5. 7Requirements, Requirements…• Fixed budget, can’t do everything• What is really needed?• What are the priorities• How does GIS fit in?
  6. 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. 7. 10COTS Evaluation• What are the costs?• What are the benefits?– Process improvement– Alignment with requirements
  8. 8. 11Apples and Oranges• Disparate Systems– CMMS / EAMS– EDMS– Stormwater Permitting Systems– LIMS
  9. 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. 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. 11. 17GIS Integration• ArcGIS Server Data Publication• ArcGIS Geolist Web Part
  12. 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. 13. Thank You
