Watercare Gis – Surviving Amalgamation And Moving Forward

Annual Conference 2015

The existing Watercare GIS also had to rapidly grow to cope with a massive increase of asset data - from 35,000 to over 1 million assets. This included taking the GIS spatial and other asset data held by the seven local authority GIS and asset data systems and integrating this information into a new single GIS database and Asset Management Information System.

During this phase, it was quickly realised that not all water and wastewater network GIS and asset data is the same!

This paper discusses the challenges that were experienced at the time of integration in dealing with these disparate datasets, how these were overcome and how we are now moving forward.
