  • GIS Improves the Odds: The Las Vagas Water District Manages Service Outages Befoe They Happen—The Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) designed a custom Valve Isolation (VI) system that helps measure the impacts of service outages as well as quickly identify strategies to isolate water-main breaks. Although integrated within the district’s GIS, VI is designed for non-GIS users, specifically those responsible for the daily operation of the water-delivery system...

    When GIS staff investigated expanding the use of built-in VI functions, they discovered conflicts with the existing database design. The first issue was ensuring the physical and logical connectivity among networked features...LVVWD’s water data model also was problematic, as it wasn’t optimized for VI...Automation was developed to build and maintain a secondary database specifically tuned for VI. The Oracle Spatial Network Data Model was adopted for this approach, allowing control of which water-distribution-system elements would be used for modeling flow...., Article, August, 2012 (HTML)

  • Advantages of Using Postcode Regions to Aggregate, Analyze and Visualize Data in Oracle ApplicationsChristopher Guider, GfK GeoMarketing
    Oracle users can spot otherwise unseen trends and relationships in their data by associating it with postcode polygons and then displaying the results on digital maps. The use of postcode regions or tessellations as the primary reporting level offers distinct advantages over a purely point-based approach. This session explores these specific benefits and applications of aggregating address-based data to postcode regions and then analyzing the results directly on digital maps.

  • Sensor Data Fusion and Integration of Geospatial Data at Air Force Research LaboratoryJoseph Seppi, Woolpert, Inc. & Matt McCue, Woolpert, Inc.
    The Holy Grail of the Intelligence Community is Sensor Data Fusion. Sensors for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and data collected continue to increase. Assets must be coordinated to optimize collection. Processes such as real-time image registration and sensor fusion assure precision and confidence. Coordinating the complex ISR infrastructure and process calls for a unified approach that consists of three components: sensors, a sensor web backbone, and a situational awareness fusion engine (SAFE). Woolpert worked with Air Force Research Laboratory on Sensor Web Enabled (SWE) technology. This includes a geospatial information infrastructure backbone, and an Oracle Spatial database that enables interoperability with other data sources, and features such as change detection analysis of imagery.
