Utility DataHub™ enables users to quickly and seamlessly retrieve geospatial utility data from their enterprise GIS without having to leave the familiar user interfaces of AutoCAD® and AUD.
Utility DataHub™ NetMaps allows users to access web-based mapping utility data from most common internet mapping services to augment their designs. NetMaps can also access local sources of imagery and perform geocoding tasks.
Approved designs can be exported back to GIS via Utility DataHub™ Playback Manager module. Playback Manager automates the processing of design and as-built engineering information for promotion into geographic information systems in conformance with utility data mapping standards without data loss.
Supported GIS environments include Esri (ArcGIS, ArcFM, and ArcGIS Pro – Utility Network Model), GE Smallworld, Intergraph G/Technology, and Autodesk Map3D.
Utility DataHub™ allows users to:
- Retrieve work orders from work management systems
- Display all relevant information for the design
- Link work orders to drawing files
- Store information for title block generation
- Refresh drawing files with updated changes from the work management system
- Unlink from current work order and link to another work order
All this from within the AutoCAD®-based AUD design environment.
Compatible units and related assemblies are made available to designers from the corporate Enterprise Asset Management or Materials Management systems. Bill of Materials information can be sent back to these systems for estimating then on to other applications to support material retrieval and warehousing transactions.
