Project Goal

The goal was to implement a web mapping-based solution that would track engineering projects, filter on projects of interest, record spatial locations and move the project through a validation process ultimately updating the PODS GIS System.

Business Problem Solved

1. How do we track engineering projects that may have an impact to PHMSA compliance where GIS updates are needed? These types of projects are typically:
a. Pipe Replacements
b. Pipe Re-Route
c. Pipe Re-Coating
d. Valve Replacements
e. Facility Work
f. Pressure Tests
2. The above project types once completed and paperwork received, require the GIS PODS database to be updated. This is important since most compliance type calculations are run from the GIS data. Such as HCA, Class calculations, MAOP determination, Risk runs etc. This feeds other downstream processes and compliance decision making. We would not want to make decisions based on pipeline data in the GIS system that does not match what was done in the field.
