18 Sammamish Virtual Vault - Engineering drawing search and retrieval system Documentation Installation and Maintenance Guide

19 Sammamish Virtual Vault - Engineering drawing search and retrieval system Lessons Learned  The system is more complex ”under the hood” than it appears  There are limitations when managing toolbars in ArcGIS Desktop  Project file and models can be corrupted without warning  File geodatabase grows even if just reading (use "compact" tool)  Don't know what directory ArcGIS will run script in (use absolute paths)  Query syntax different for shapefiles vs. geodatabases

20 Sammamish Virtual Vault - Engineering drawing search and retrieval system Successes  Stayed on schedule  City staff available and willing to help  Visit to Seattle Public Utilities validated use of PDF files and HTML reports  Environment settings file a good first step  Delivered good documentation  Implemented reasonable search and retrieval system within ArcGIS Desktop

21 Sammamish Virtual Vault - Engineering drawing search and retrieval system Live Demo

22 Sammamish Virtual Vault - Engineering drawing search and retrieval system Future Recommendations  Add columns to report (make it customizable?)  Make the system easier to install (more environment settings in one place)  Move the system to the internet so customers can do their own searches  Link to the CAD as-built files  Search using sub-sets of data (e.g. search only R.O.W. projects)  Search using direct SQL queries in addition to the buffer method  Develop a complete drawing management system
