2 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Special Thanks to ESRI PUG! Bill Wally - Chevron Dave Frye - ESRI Andrew Zolnai - ESRI

3 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Meeting Agenda 2:00 - 2:30 - Ron Brush –Introduction to PODS Association 2:30 - 3:00 - Tracy Thorleifson –Technical Discussion of PODS 3:00 - 3:30 –Future Directions

4 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. PODS Purpose To develop and promote standards for the exchange and storage of data in the pipeline industry. The PODS data model is particularly related to geo-spatial information for pipelines.

5 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. What is PODS Today? Enterprise pipeline data model –Facilities, Compliance, Inspections and more –300+ tables The PODS Association Group of pipelines and vendors who help define and implement useful pipeline data standards

6 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Three Viewpoints A design approach An example for pipeline companies to use A data model that can be implemented

7 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. The PODS Association Incorporated August 2000 Seeking new members Membership: $1000 per company per year Supported by ESRI, GTI www.pods.org

8 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. PODS Contributors Williams Gas Pipelines ESRI Dynamic Risk Assessment Eagle Information Mapping GeoFields New Century Software Bass-Trigon Software Stoner Associates Kinder Morgan Reliant Energy TransCanada Pipelines Coral Energy Conoco Chevron Dynegy PPDM plus Others

9 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Brief History Initiated in 1998 by GRI Volunteer membership to date Core group of members contributing their knowledge Developed the PODS data model based on earlier Williams work Incorporated parts of ISAT

10 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Brief History One goal was to establish an industry association to further support and develop the work Incorporated August 2000 Profit -- Not-for-profit Membership letter sent out in January To date -- 3 members, plus more to come

14 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Benefits of Joining Input into model development Input on organizational structure Networking/communications Acquiring best practices Forum for resolution and implementation issues

15 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Benefits of Using PODS Comprehensive data model Less risk in implementing GIS The more companies that use it, the easier it will be to integrate applications Applying best practices - evolving Association directed and driven

17 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Perspectives on PODS...

18 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. ISAT 1.0 - Areas to Enhance No support for multiple sources of coordinate data No direct support 3D centerlines No support for multiple versions of pipeline centerlines Limited support for historical tracking Limited support for modeling branching pipeline systems (gathering / distribution systems) No support for “network” topology (required for flow modeling) Limited support for inspection data

24 Future Directions

25 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Short-Term Goals  Membership Promotion  Election of Officers  Publish a PODS CD –PODS DDL –Domain (lookup) table values –Example applications –Documentation –Sample Database

26 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Other Goals More pipelines implementing PODS More vendors writing PODS applications Approve inspection pigging submodel

27 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Planned Enhancements Improve Inspections and Maintenance Submodel Compressor Station - Emissions Better Documentation Published Domain Tables

28 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Future Directions Extensions or new models for: –Gathering –Distribution –Liquids

29 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Future Directions Integration with ArcSDE –Geo-database Networking –Versioning –Connectivity - Trace Network

30 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Future Enhancements Example GPS Data Dictionaries –Easier to load data into PODS Improved domain tables XML Schemas

31 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Applications Data Loading Tools Data Maintenance Tools Sheet Generators Analysis Tools Construction Integration Inspection and Maintenance Compliance Assistance Tools

32 © 2001 PODS Association, Inc. Applications Bridges to Third-Party Applications –Risk Assessment –Flow Modeling –SCADA –Land Records –Cathodic Protection
