I have two databases storing pipeline data. One is spatial and the other is non-spatial. The spatial has one geometric network and other simple feature classes. I need to perform migration from those databases to one centralized database, UPDM,2019. This is very simple data as it does not have any utility network or any linear referencing. I have seen the data template of UPDM. It has a utility network containing center-lines, calibration points etc. that are used for pipeline linear referencing.
My question is, can I transform my data to updm without linear referencing? Because, I have seen some feature classes in UPDM, they contain route_id.
The data is huge, so if LRS is needed, how would I able to transform the data?
What is best practice in such sceneries?
Can someone give me a guide line to implement this?
aaiz Me The UPDM template has objects for both utility network and linear referencing to support Pipeline Data Management using #arcgis pipeline referencing (APR) and/or arcgis utility network (UN). However, you can choose to implement UN only without linear referencing. It is a supported implementation pattern and in this case, you can ignore the LRS required objects like calibration points, routes etc.
Thanks for the reply Ayan. But the current database does not have UN either. It has a geometric network (GN), so do I need to create UN from GN? or just map the feature classes of database to the respective UPDM feature classes?
aaiz Me Data mapping and migration are required steps towards implementing UN. There are several resources to help with the understanding of the processes:
Please also refer to the UN Data Migration Best Practices white paper.
