Integrating MDOT’s business data with its geographic data using Oracle Spatial

Integrating MDOT’s business data with its geographic data using Oracle Spatial

Challenge The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is responsible for planning, designing, building and operating streets, highways, bridges, transit systems, airports, railroads and ports. MDOT used separate systems to manage the geographic data and the business data (using a linear referencing system) describing the state’s transportation network. Because, the LRS technology was not geographically referenced, MDOT’s ability to automate data validation procedures and perform real-time spatial analyses of the...
MTC SAFE’s Bay Area Freeway Service Patrol fleet management evaluation

MTC SAFE’s Bay Area Freeway Service Patrol fleet management evaluation

Challenge MTC SAFE’s Freeway Service Patrol (FSP) Program is responsible for monitoring the locations of its tow service trucks to verify that they are available when needed. FSP uses an Automatic Vehicle Locator (AVL) system that allows the California Highway Patrol to verify that tow service trucks are at their designated locations. The FSP needed a comprehensive diagnosis of their existing telecommunications network, especially the AVL system. Solution Farallon...

ISO Innovative Analytics risk management geoprocessing using Oracle Spatial

Challenge In the insurance industry, there are many factors which impact the level of risk posed to each insurer. ISO Innovative Analytics (ISO) wanted to be able to identify and correlate a broad range of historical information in order to improve the way insurance companies currently rate auto insurance policies. Risk factors can be location-based or not. Correlating potential risk factors with actual risk required ISO to analyze a...
Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) Oracle Spatial Technical Support

Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) Oracle Spatial Technical Support

Challenge Pacific Gas and Electric’s GIS supports a broad range of internal and external needs and includes large, varied data sets, ranging from natural resource and wildlife tracking to transmission line data. PG&Es complex GIS coupled with their extensive client-user base created inefficient business processes, especially the task of identifying and tracking power poles along transmission lines. GIS applications and training were required to provide users with customized tools,...
Parsons-UXB Joint Venture on Kaho’olawe Island Reserve Demilitarization GIS

Parsons-UXB Joint Venture on Kaho’olawe Island Reserve Demilitarization GIS

Challenge The 11×7-mile Hawaiian island of Kaho’olawe lies six miles off the west coast of Maui. The Navy used it from 1945 until 1990 for air- and sea-based target practice, leaving a trail of unexploded ordnance (UXO), from small arms munitions to 500lb World War II-era bombs and 1,500lb nuclear simulators.  Parsons-UXB developed an island-wide GIS to manage the clean up of unexploded ordnance (UXO). The GIS tracks the...
