Autodesk University Session Focus: Building Better Reports and Maps Using Linear Referencing & AutoCAD Map 3D
Linear referencing (also known as dynamic segmentation) can provide a means of defining a complete pipe as a collection of segments and measured distances. We can model assets and observations—such as regulator stations, leaks, and inspections—based on their distances from the start of the pipe.
This December at Autodesk University, Deeter Smith, GIS Administrator of Okaloosa Gas District and Stephen Brockwell, President of Brockwell IT Consulting, will be presenting a lecture focused on using Linear Referencing to assist in reporting. The objectives for the lesson are to understand what Linear Referencing can do for the utility business, understand the Linear Referencing System concepts of definition, axis, segment, asset, and route and understand how to create a new Linear Referencing System definition and apply it to your organization.
In this session, you will learn how a Linear Referencing System (LRS) can more easily and more accurately put together reports and maps required to meet all of the new regulations for utilities. With the help of Brockwell IT Consulting, Okaloosa Gas District has incorporated LRS into the AutoCAD Map 3D software Gas Data Module on Oracle Spatial. Using new and existing information in the database enables for easier changes, more accurate reporting, and much more attractive maps.
Building Better Reports and Maps Using Linear Referencing and AutoCAD Map 3D will be presented on Wednesday, December 3 from 1:00-2:00 pm. If you haven’t already registered for Autodesk University, you can go to the official site to find out more about it, look over the course catalog and register. We look forward to seeing you there!
