Objektives for a GIS



data → information → knowledge →
confidence
Easy data exchange in a PUC
Support of all technical and
administrative tasks

data → information → knowledge → confidence




data: all original data should be integrated!!!
scans, photos, videos etc.
(nowadays the capacity of storage will not be the limit)
information: it is useless to convert all data to information
if it is not necessary at the moment!!!
(e.g.: the digitalization of house connections)
knowledge: is created by analyzing the information
(e.g.: the condition of certain parts of the network)
certainty: is needed when decisions have to be made
(e.g. replacement or repair of network parts)
To be sure that a decision is based on facts it must be
possible to look at a control sample of the original data at
any time. (e.g.: photo of damages, sewer inspection video)

Pipe network Information System
Responsible officers need a
Complete image of the infrastructure for
planning and maintenance

Setup
• Integration of all basic data!
(land register, surveying, orthophotos, etc…)
• Integration of all pipe network data !!!
(all sources: sketches, photos, maps, drawings, etc…)

Update
• Basic data: Update cycle (online, offline)
• PUC data: Adapted to the situation

Usage
• Support of maintenance and repair
• Basic for planning

problem
• Documentation as end in itself
staff has poor access to the GIS data
• Poor administration of the collected data
Images, sketches, materialists, work orders are stored in
different systems and can normally not be combined
• Undefined data exchange in the PUC
no central storage system or exchange format
