Critigen Advanced Rapid Migration ENgine
- CARMEN is a suite of configurable out-of-box extensions and custom tools for enterprise-scale GIS migrations
- CARMEN is configurable
- CARMEN is transparent
- CARMEN improves your data
- CARMEN has been road-tested on Esri’s Utility Network (UN)
Geometry Review: go beyond the standard Esri toolset to quickly identify geometry issues – especially those that could impact a Utility Network (UN) build. CARMEN surfaces “hidden” issues like improper arc snapping and invalid geometries.
Attribute Review: highlight data and schema issues and build statistics to quantify data health and prioritize remediation. Validate object relationships and the use of best practices for key fields.
Advanced UN Configurations: determine whether your data can support a basic UN build (predict dirty areas) as well as advanced capabilities such as containment and associations.
Topology is a key element in a successful Utility Network build. CARMEN has tools and capabilities designed to facilitate building connectivity rules and populate associations for connectivity, containment and structural attachments.
CARMEN significantly reduces migration time and effort through ready-made feature and data object mappings.
Many organizations migrate data from legacy non-spatial data sources. CARMEN has multiple tools to spatially enable this data through sophisticated multi-pass processing.
CARMEN checks every aspect of the migrated data – from source-to-mapped object counts – to fine-grained data validation of domain values – to asset hierarchy relationships.
Geometry issues are identified and represented graphically to quickly determine root cause.
Confidence reports provide a comprehensive view of migration results including the number of features processed in each step of multi-tiered processes.
CARMEN automatically remediates issues during conversion to improve data consistency and overall quality. Common topology issues such as offsets and snapping can be fine tuned to your specific source data.
Common UN geometry issues such as stacked points and invalid terminal configurations, can be identified and resolved through a variety of sophisticated mitigations.
Tools are configured for resolving any number of attribute issues – from default values, to attribute normalization, to value mappings to complex logic assignment.
