The Town of Marana looking forward to migrating to a Utility Network. Marana Water teamed with WestLand Resources for an assessment of their GIS data to assist in migrating to ESRI's Utility Network Data Model. Utility Network is ESRI's ArcGIS Enterprise based data model that integrates advanced asset modeling such as internal configurations of complex assemblies, analysis tools such as tracing, and sharing data seamlessly with the entire organization through web-based GIS. Together, Marana Water and WestLand developed a road map for migrating the GIS data to Utility Network and its interactions with third-party applications such as document and asset management systems, field data collection applications and operations tools and workflows.
Takeaway: Utility network data assessment and migration
