Field Data Collection—Trimble GPS

Visual Pipeline provides a seamless connection between data collected in the field and GIS development in the office. Trimble GPS units perform the field data collection, leveraging extensive custom data dictionaries with pre-populated drop-down menus. This collection method speeds data collection, reduces data entry errors, and helps ensure the standardization of data collected across multiple field teams. Users can also navigate to areas in the field using the GPS unit’s rendering of project-specific basemap data such as survey limits and property boundaries. All data collected in the field is validated against quality control measures and loaded into the project ArcSDE GIS database.

Visual Pipeline Map Portal

The Visual Pipeline web-based portal is a fully hosted, turnkey solution that can be viewed on both PCs and mobile devices, such as smart phones or tablets (Android, iOS). The map portal comes with a robust map navigation, query and reporting toolset that includes the ability to navigate to a particular address or field asset, identify a map feature such as a parcel or utility line, and search attribute databases.

Additional functionality includes red-lining of an area for comment and reporting; viewing of imagery from aerial, satellite, or Google and Bing maps and street views; and report and map generation. The map portal can be customized with your branding themes, images and colors to appear as a fully integrated solution.

Data Management

Visual Pipeline utilizes an enterprise ArcSDE geodatabase for storage of all O&G data and documentation, providing a single centralized database that eliminates lag time and provides for version control and data security. The database is part of the Visual Pipeline Map Portal, which is Critigen's fully hosted, turnkey solution for the O&G industry.

The data models Critigen provides include Pipeline Open Data Standard (PODS) or Esri’s ArcGIS Pipeline Data Model (APDM). The Critigen data model also integrates data from other vendors including GeoFields, New Century Software, and Geonamic
