Esri and Safe Software paired to develop and openly share a template that facilitates utility-data sharing. The Common Information Model (CIM) template demonstrates one approach to translating network data from an Esri ArcGIS database into CIM/XML format. The XML format can then be shared with other enterprise systems.


Utilities can use the CIM to share core network data. CIM facilitates sharing among a utility’s internal enterprise systems, externally with other utilities, and externally with agencies, such as regulators, independent system operators, and regional transmission operators.


Please read the “Esri GIS to CIM Template Reference Guide” carefully for step-by-step instructions to using the sample CIM template.
