Improving Data Compliancy Using FME

  1. 1. CONNECT. TRANSFORM. AUTOMATE. Improving Data Compliancy Using FME David van Riel GIS Technologist, City of Kitchener
  2. 2. City of Kitchener Information  1 hour west of Toronto.  200,000+ people.  Centralized GIS in ESRISDE environment.  Maintain ~400 GIS layers, many linked and/or contribute to other systems.  User of FME for last ~8 years. Initially for data exporting and transforming, but increasingly more for data loading and manipulation.
  3. 3. Need for Complete and Correct Data  Asset management:  Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) 3150 for reporting of tangible capital assets.  SAP for city financial and accounting needs.  For work order management, inspection programs, and reporting being done through, or housed in, Cityworks.  As usual any and all other mapping, analysis, reporting, and exporting done on city’s GIS asset information.
  4. 4. Infrastructure Features: Former Data Capture Process Majority of:  Sanitary sewer  Storm water sewer  Water  Geographic capture = retrace features
  5. 5. Infrastructure Features: Former Data Capture Process Is information present?
  6. 6. Infrastructure Features: Former Data Capture Process Where is the information?
  7. 7. Infrastructure Features: Former Data Capture Process  Slow.  Prone to errors.  Data entered multiple times.  Unhappy customers.
  8. 8. Digital Submission Capability/Ability  CAD characteristics (CAD Standards Checker)  Complete attribute data (Attribute Checker)  Correct attribute data (Attribute Checker)  Correct geographic placement (Topology Checker) * * * Relative, not absolute
  9. 9. Digital Submission Compliancy Checkers  CAD Standards, Attribute, and Topology Checkers developed by Consortech.  FME reads consultant submitted AutoCAD Map 3D files (with object data) and Excel files containing basic checker settings.  Requirements for all checkers: 1. GIS or AutoCAD, and text or Excel outputs. 2. Easily customizable settings for changing needs.
  10. 10. CAD Standards Checker
  11. 11. Attribute Checker
  12. 12. Topology Checker 12 rules:  node edge snap  node end snap  floating node  duplicate node  line end snap  line edge snap  crossed line  line end node  duplicate line  floating service  one line two nodes  both line ends snap
  13. 13. Loading Data into CoK Database  After drawing has passed all checkers the data is ready to be exported from AutoCAD and loaded into the GIS database.  Use AutoCAD epf (export profile) files to export to shapefiles, then using ArcGIS Model Builder to load data into database.
  14. 14. Manual Checks and Procedures  Check connectivity of new features to existing features.  Register .pdf files in EDRA (in house Electronic Document Registration Application) and create linked boundaries in GIS.  Fill in fields not provided by consultants (SOURCE, SOURCE_DATE, ROADSEGMENTID, QUARTER_GRID_ID, UP_MA NHOLEID, etc…).
  15. 15. Digital Submission / Data Compliancy Benefits  Time saving (solves slow method).  Accuracy/completeness of data (solves prone to error issue).  Defined deliverables with respect all parties (solves multiple data entry issue).  Everyone is happy!
  16. 16. What’s Next?  Synchronize AutoCAD template to GIS database (constantly changing).  More/improved database loading automation and automate manual GIS fields where possible (using FME for complete process?).  Incorporate Region of Waterloo projects.  Apply checkers to other processes (gas utility – AutoCAD training late fall 2013 and first digital submissions spring 2014).  FME Server.
