FortisBC used the adjust.IT software/process to realign the FortisBC’s gas network assets to the new ICI land base.
The process transpired in two logical steps. First, the shift required was determined by comparing the old and new land base. Second, the FortisBC service area was divided into similarly sized “chunks” for delivery. The entire process was completed without freezing the FortisBC GIS, which would upset their GIS department and over 300 users.
“The conflation project allowed FortisBC to adopt a new land base, realign its assets to the new and base and increase the accuracy and efficiency of the One Call responses and other business processes.” Says Piet Nooij, Production Process Manager -Business & IT Services for FortisBC.
With over 30,000 miles of pipeline, FortisBC was forecasting a significant increase in One Call (Dial Before You Dig) notices. The existing process was inefficient and the accuracy of asset information in the GIS was causing over notification. FortisBC’s business objective was to improve the efficiency of responses to One Call requests, in part through automation, but primarily through increased GIS accuracy.
