4 Pipeline Mapping Digital Submissions
Pipeline Safety – Mapping – Digital Submissions Steps to Set up an FTP account (File Transfer Protocol) The software that enables files to be transmitted over data lines from one computer to another Submit to Request an FTP Account should contain: FTP Request Contact Person and Title Company Name Address Phone Number Sample to Request an FTP Account should be sent to:

5 Pipeline Mapping Steps to Instructions for Submitting and Receiving Digital Data via FTP Instructions for Submitting Digital Lower case “t” Maximum of 8 characters Required files: .shp, .dbf, .shx and .prj Sample for an FTP Submission Subject: Pipeline operator name Body: Operator Name and Address Type of Submission Type of Datum T-4 Permit/Mapping Contact

6 Pipeline Mapping Steps to Attribute Definitions Attribute Definitions
Be sure to add all the *Required Fields in Red A T-4 Amend code should be listed for each line segment Steps to Commodity List Commodity List Commodity Description (Butane/Butylene), Commodity (HVL), Systype (Q) Steps to Vendor List Vendor List Software Vendor List for Submitting Digital Data All vendors on this list have been approved to submit the required data

7 Pipeline Mapping Steps to Hard Copy Map Submissions
Hard Copy Submission Requirements 7.5 minute USGS Quad – 24X29 in. – 1 to 24,000 scale Operator name T-4 Permit Number System names Counties Date created Numbered quads T-4 Permit/Mapping contact person and phone number Maps should have this essential information: Coordinates, Quad Name Border notation, County/State Line, City Name/Limits, Roads & Map Scale, One permit per Map

8 Pipeline Mapping Sample Email to Request Digital Data
Labeling Pipelines (Option 1) – Label diameters, Specify multiple lines using same R.O.W., UseT4 amendment codes to color code pipelines. Labeling Pipelines (Option 2) – Highlight all changes, Mark intersections/attributes with a dot. Identify the change. Sample to Request Digital Data Operator name and Address T-4 Permit number Contact information Sample from RRC to Operator The name of the file to download is p _1.tar.gz Extracted data for t4 permit 09999 Retrieving Data from the Railroad Commission Original FTP instructions *See Instructions for DOS FTP for visual reference of instructions at the end of this handout
