What is PODS? PODS is the recognized industry standard pipeline data model. PODS is the industry best practice for pipeline data management. PODS provides Pipeline Operators with an enterprise database architecture that is open, vendor-neutral, highly-scalable, and proven.
What is PODS? PODS is a foundational component of the IT enterprise for pipeline companies. PODS allows Pipeline Operators to integrate critical life-cycle data and records with geospatial location. Asset information and records External documents Inspections Analysis
What is PODS? PODS Mission The PODS Association’s mission is to develop and support open data storage and interchange standards to meet the needs of the pipeline industry. open
Why is Open Important? Pipeline Open Data Standard (PODS) PODS is built based upon the input of many pipeline companies. Many service providers build their products to interact with the PODS structure. Pipeline Operators who use PODS are not handcuffed to a single vendor’s software applications.
What is PODS? PODS is a voluntary pipeline data standard, collaboratively developed and maintained by the pipeline industry. PODS was built by Pipeline Operators, for Pipeline Operators. PODS Association is a membership-based, not-for- profit industry association.

Current Membership * Many PODS member companies have global operations.
PODS Relational and GIS PODS Relational is deployed on Oracle or SQL Server. PODS Relational is designed to work with a GIS. PODS Relational is not dependent upon a GIS. A GIS is used to view the spatial representation of the data within the PODS database. PODS data may be spatialized in any GIS. Many software applications are available to manage data within PODS through a GIS interface. The PODS Relational Database
PODS Esri Spatial PODS Esri Spatial is an implementation of the PODS Standard. PODS Esri Spatial includes the same tables, attributes, and domains of the PODS Standard, but is designed specifically for an Esri SDE deployment. Releases of PODS Esri Spatial are maintained in-step with PODS Relational. The PODS Esri Spatial Geodatabase
