Oil & Gas Pipeline GIS data models :
Importance of Data models
A pipeline data model is of significance to an organization. It is a representation of any organizations deployment of data. A standard data model is needed for the below reasons:
- A data model is like a basic framework for a GIS to be built for pipelines.
- A data model provides a structured design for the storage, maintenance and use of information.
- Acts as an enabler to the software selection process. Provides a starting point for the organization.
- Provides implementation strategies, proof of concept and best practices to the industry.
- Provides interoperability between companies and better support to integration activities.
Pipeline data models in use:
PODS – Pipeline Open Data Model – provides Pipeline Operators a highly-scalable database architecture to integrate critical records and analysis data with geospatial location for each component of your pipeline system in a vendor-neutral platform.
APDM – ArcGIS Pipeline Data Model – The ArcGIS Pipeline Data Model is designed for storing information pertaining to features and conditions found on or along gathering and transmission gas and/or liquid pipelines.
ISAT – The efforts to develop an industry-standard pipeline data model began in 1994 with the development of the Integrated Spatial Analysis Techniques (ISAT) pipeline data model project.ISAT was designed to be customizable and has been expanded for numerous clients to support data integration, field data collection, one-call, right-of-way, environmental, marketing, risk assessment, and pipeline integrity applications.
