  • DPR COSEA Unifies Management of Critical Construction Project with Comprehensive Project Management SolutionDPR COSEA
    DPR COSEA is a consortium of companies commissioned to plan and build the South Europe Atlantic High Speed Line (LGV) between Tours and Bordeaux, France.

    DPR COSEA deployed Oracle solutions to uniformly manage the huge data volume associated with its critical construction project. With Oracle, DPR COSEA can enable all LGV construction participants to reliably access a highly available information system—without geographical limitation—from any office environment. The Oracle solution also enables DPR COSEA to create a central repository to optimize railway operation and maintenance throughout the consortium’s duration, and it provides a new collaborative environment for construction planning, synchronization, and centralized analyses.

  • Use of Oracle Spatial SDO_PC for Cloud-Based Point Cloud Data Management—LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) utilizes optical remote sensing to create precise digital models of a geographic area or structure. Architecture and engineering firms use LiDAR to record a project's existing conditions, and the data is stored in a point cloud for use in modeling and geospatial software. Because these point clouds are quite large, HNTB uses Oracle Spatial 11g and the Amazon EC2 cloud to efficiently manage the data through a secure, cloud-based solution.

  • Challenges and Advancements in Remotely Sensed Data Storage—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.

  • 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.... geoplace.com, Article, August, 2012 (HTML)
