1 Water Utility GIS Christopher Kahn Project Manager, GIS April 15 th, 2010 Company Property Assets: Leverage GIS to Provide Access & Analysis

2 A GIS property map request is generated… and the data hunt begins… Prior to

3 1. Determine data requirments 2. Locate record in various databases 3. Compare / conflate various records 4. Open map document 5. Open attribute selection tool 6. Zoom to block / lot 7. Change all surround elements 8. Change overview map 9. Query on watershed, various overlay layers 10. Edit title block w/ specific information 11. What if parcel data is bad? 12. Edge-match 13. What if it doesn't match our records? 14. More Research 15. What if block / lot geometry unavailable? 16. Find electronic tax map, download image 17. Locate property in GIS 18. Geo-reference 19. Digitize 20. What if tax maps missing? 21. Contact legal department for deed 22. Digitize from Metes & Bounds in deed 23. Export finished product. 24. What if someone requested 80 such maps?? “The Old Way” Hypothetical GIS Property Request Workflow…

4 44 Business Reality  Over 500 properties across state  Existing databases vary in completeness & formatting:  Tax, Legal, Environmental Compliance, Asset Planning, etc  Satisfy the individual needs of departments  Not comprehensive; No uniform mapping component  Insufficient for Regulatory or Management: -Map requests -Comprehensive data requests -Requests that require spatial overlay -Spatial or attribute query requests -GIS analysis requests  No “Self-Help” … all property map requests require research.  Bulk Requests can take weeks to compile

5 55 Business Need  Seamless property database in GIS  Simple schema with logical key field (PAMS)  Dynamic Template to respond quickly to GIS requests  Automate common overlay requests  Automate map production  Web Access for “Non-GIS” users  Easy search & query, identify, print tools  Environmental Chart tools  Industry friendly base map

6 6 Objective The objective of this project is to create efficient ways to access, analyze, & edit New Jersey American Water property information along with related, contextual GIS layers. Goals: The primary goal is to design and build an up to date, seamless GIS property layer for New Jersey American Water. The secondary goal is to provide efficient ways to access, analyze, query, edit, and print property information for end users with and without GIS knowledge. The tertiary goal is to design a base map that uses cartographic design principles to support users in a variety of web-based geospatial water utility tasks.
