Pipeline Asset Management System

Client: Southern California Gas Company

Location: Northridge, CA

Our team generated a DTM, rendered 3D graphics, and utilized photogrammetrically and surveyed compiled pipelines and hard copy maps showing the location of wells, pipelines, and fittings for conversion into a digital mapping environment in order to develop the feasibility of automated hydraulic modeling for pipeline design in a dynamic environment.  Pipeline and fitting attributes were stored in an Access database and connected to the 3D mapping environment.  Through the use of a custom application, the spatial locations of  graphic elements and Access attributes were transferred into a specialized, third party hydraulic modeling software product for further analysis.  Additional tools for pipeline planning scenarios were created to utilize the DTM.
