FMD GID Data Conversion Project

label FMD GID Data Conversion Project

May 1, 2011

A GIS allows the Facility Management community to: 

  •    Manage real property, building, assets, and facilities data with utility;
  •    Provide real-time updates;
  •    Efficiently manage work orders;
  •    Enable interoperability with other IT systems;
  •    Plan for the evacuation of areas in danger;
  •    Create automated notifications about an incident;
  •    And more

After seeing the beauty of GIS technology, the Facilities Management Division asked us to convert their current asset data from MicroGDS format to ESRI ArcGIS Geodatabase format, and to integrate the data into the ArcGIS Data Model used by the City of Saskatoon.
