These initiatives were developed focusing on data structuring, information standardization, redundancy reduction, auditing mechanisms and workflow standardization and automation. Having design information described so that a computer system understands it, the work can be performed in a faster, more detailed, error-free and standardized manner. As opposed to a document-centered design (where focus is on form), a data-centric design is one in which focus is on information. This innovation challenges regard not only technology but also concerns culture change. These initiatives have enabled new ways of elaborating engineering design, taking advantage of Intergraph Smart P&ID, Intergraph Smart Instrumentation and Intergraph Smart 3D, raising the bar of quality and productivity to levels beyond our grasp until now. 45 Minutes Breakout Session Filipe Diniz

2214 - Leveraging Data Intelligence to Predict Outcomes

For generations, we have been trained to put data into systems to feed rearward-looking reports that show what happened. By adding EcoSys into the mix, we have added standardized processes and a centralized platform that automates the production of reports, dashboards and many types of workflows, allowing us to produce actionable data. We literally have a database of historical and current project, portfolio and contract data that has so much more to tell us! This session will dive into how FTI's Data Intelligence Group is organizing data by integrating EcoSys and other structured and unstructured data while applying statistical models to develop new insights into the existing data. This arms decision makers with quantitative data, predictive models and easy visualizations and reports to focus on key issues that truly impact outcomes. Come see how EcoSys and Data Intelligence provides new ways to drive project performance if you have ever asked questions like: - Does the duration of a project affect the likelihood of cost overrun? - How likely is a project to hit its Class III Estimate target? - How do RFIs impact productivity? - How likely is each project in a portfolio to hit its forecasted spend (or revenue) for next month? - What is the likely impact to margin for a given Change Order? - What PM / CM combination produces the best project outcomes? Come see how EcoSys and Data Intelligence can provide new ways to drive project performance!

2216 - Facilities Data Management & Digital Transformation

"Most petroleum industry processes are still based on documents. Embracing the digital twin concept, Eni decided to create an integrated data management platform called the Eni Integrated Platform (EIP). Now the company can capitalize on the digital data during the entire lifecycle of each facility, which is the real value for operators. The Eni Life Cycle Information (LCI) management program ensures the availability of all the engineering data during development and construction project phases and subsequent operation and maintenance processes, with the aim of conducting future projects for production optimization, asset integrity and further development. In EniProgetti, Eni's engineering arm, several projects were started in 2018 to enhance the data-centric approach and create the unique EIP to implement "single source of truth" concept. The data-centric approach in every stage of projects is already compulsory for Eni. Every stakeholder (partners, contractors, engineering services suppliers) must be ready to comply. In this session, Eni will share how full integration between engineering, planning, procurement, construction, commissioning and operations provides benefits that are providing highly increased data consistency and significant reduction of time to market "

3102 - Can Machine Learning Help the Dutch Build a Self-Regulating Water System

A common challenge that government organizations face today is the need to accomplish more with ever-shrinking resources and funds. This challenge also troubles the Waterschap Drents Overijssel Delta, one of the 22 water boards in the Netherlands. Their goals are simple: manage infrastructure such as dams and dykes, decontaminate water supplies, and balance flooding and drought situations. But now, with growing populations and global warming threatening the natural balance, they must develop new sustainable ways to meet their goals. Technology and automation used to decipher satellite data helped WDO Delta recognize approximately 40% of anomalies in their field assets. This result was simply not enough, as it still meant that field crews must work around the clock to achieve accurate results. In 2018, WDO Delta and IMAGEM began working on an ambitious pilot to test the possibilities of using machine learning within ERDAS IMAGINE. In this session WDO Delta and IMAGEM will share the overwhelmingly positive results from the pilot and discuss their plans to create a self-regulating water system - the first of its kind in the Netherlands.

3103 - Protecting People and Assets from Fire Risk with PROMETEO: Utility Asset Management Case (Tech Highlight Session)

Fires often have devastating personal and socioeconomic effects on people and assets. Various individual models based on observed weather recordings and vegetation conditions have been developed to help provide fire danger ratings. GEO Data Design leveraged their expertise and experience in Remote Sensing to develop the comprehensive PROMETEO algorithm, which incorporates meteorological data, multispectral satellite images, topography, slope, aspect, and human population factors. The result is a quantitative probability forecast of fire risk over an area of interest. Using ERDAS IMAGINE Spatial Modeler and advanced Python scripting, PROMETEO produces outputs that are integrated into a Hexagon Geospatial M.App Enterprise solution that enables cloud-based pre-fire planning and post-fire assessment phases of fire management programs. The application includes web-based & mobile interfaces that integrate information layers, analytics and workforce management capabilities to streamline vegetation clearing for office-bound and remotely deployed personnel. PROMETEO assists in quantifying the risk of fire to both people and assets, facilitating informed decisions that proactively protect them. This paper will discuss the deployment of PROMETEO in power line asset management.

3111 - EDU Contest Winners: Two Approaches for Machine-Learning Classification using Satellite Imagery

Contest Winner: Christopher Hanni, USF: Grant-Funded Research Aids Fatal Palm Tree Disease with ERDAS IMAGINE

Native palms, such as the Sabal palmetto, play an important role in maintaining the ecological balance in Florida. As a side-effect of globalization, new phytopathogens have been introduced and threaten native palm forests. This decline presents new challenges for forestry managers and geographers but advances in remote sensing have assisted by providing spatial metrics about the type, quantity, location, and the state of heath for trees for many years. Spatial details regarding the general palm decline in Florida were elucidated with tools found in ERDAS IMAGINE in conjunction with R classification programming packages. A novel approach using TensorFlow deep learning classification, multiband spatial statistics and indices, data reduction, and stepwise refinement masking yielded a significant improvement over Random Forest classification in a comparison analysis. The data sets generated from the model can aid lawmakers, government agencies, forestry managers, and environmental advocacy groups with managing the decline.

Honorable Mention: Tara McKinnon, Georgia Institute of Technology: Extending Land Cover Classification Dates to Show How Land Cover in the State of Georgia Has Shifted from the 1970s to the Present

The National Land Cover Database (NLCD) currently provides land cover classification data for the coterminous United States for the years 1992, 2001, 2006, and 2011. The NLCD dataset is based on classifications performed on LandSat imagery, and is useful in determining land cover change, which in turn helps us understand urbanization trends, changes in amount of forested land and land devoted to crops, and more. However, there is currently no standard product available for years other than those listed, though LandSat imagery has been continuously available since 1972. In this project, we seek to extend the land cover classification dates for the state of Georgia and illuminate how land cover has changed from the 1970s to present by conducting a land cover classification for the early 1970s, one for the early 1980s, and one for 2017/2018. After preprocessing and mosaicing LandSat imagery for each of the dates of interest to cover the state, land cover classifications for each set of dates will be conducted in ERDAS IMAGINE using the NLCD tool. This tool, built on the IMAGINE Spatial Modeler, uses a classification and regression tree (CART) machine learning algorithm to classify an image based on both independent and dependent variables. Once land cover classifications are complete for all 3 sets of dates, a series of change detection analyses will be conducted in ERDAS IMAGINE to assess how land cover has shifted from the 1970s to present.

3112 - Constructing Visions of the Past in GeoMedia 3D: A GIS Model of Calakmul, Campeche, Mexico  Throughout the 20th century, the Carnegie Institution for Science and other groups conducted pioneering archaeological surveys throughout Mesoamerica. Maps and publications resulting from these expeditions represent a significant body of knowledge about ancient peoples and places. This session will discuss the use of Hexagon GeoMedia 3D GIS technology to process and synthesize data housed in a variety of formats from Calakmul, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, into a geo-database that renders a vision of the past yet unseen by modern scholars. Recent efforts to depict archaeological sites as visually appealing 3D renderings employ artificial exaggeration of feature characteristics and geospatial relationships which fail to preserve the iterative capabilities designed in modern GIS. This GIS, developed with GeoMedia, can perform 3D visualization tasks while preserving the geospatial fidelity of projected map entities. It thereby enables the researcher to perform complex analytical operations as well as view site features from any perspective in their true three-dimensional form. The project includes over 4,500 3D representations of structures and represents the largest functional GIS of any archaeological site in the world. It will ultimately be housed online for visitors to fly through. Funding for this work was provided by BELSPO and UNESCO. 45 Minutes Breakout Session Terance Winemiller

3114 - Using Knowledge Graphs to Build Intelligent Spatial Data Solutions for Multiple Industry Verticals

Most large enterprises and government entities comprise multiple siloed systems that do not communicate with one another because their location data, schemas, and data values are not compatible. Moreover, traditional data integration methods are labor intensive, risky, and do not scale. Semantic rules can be defined using knowledge graphs to build intelligent integrated solutions for different industry verticals. These rules, when implemented in a spatial ontology, can help automate data integration at scale across disparate systems and perform human-like reasoning on spatial data beyond what traditional spatial databases support. This talk will demonstrate how a semantic spatial metamodel can be used to build knowledge graphs with open source technologies and how they can be integrated into LuciadRIA.

3204 - Machine Learning Applications for Land Classification

Our environment is constantly changing due to weather, natural disasters, deforestation, urbanization, farming, politics, and many other factors. The ability to identify and understand recent changes and predict potential future changes is critical to many state, local and national government organizations. Hexagon US Federal provides an application that handles these requirements: the Land Cover Mapping (LCM) tool. Built on the ERDAS IMAGINE platform and incorporating a machine learning Classification and Regression Tree (CART) algorithm, the LCM tool is easy to use and provides powerful analysis of land cover datasets. This analysis supports numerous activities, such as monitoring changes of census tracts to verify farm subsidy eligibility among others. Attend this hands-on class to learn how to use the ERDAS IMAGINE platform, the built-in spatial modeler, and the LCM tool for land cover mapping applications. Students will learn (a) how to easily and accurately classify imagery such as the National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) imagery available through the Hexagon Imagery Program, (b) how to properly train the machine learning algorithm for optimal results, and (c) the best techniques for choosing independent variable inputs, such as normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), slope, moisture content, and elevation models. In addition to learning how to use the key features of the application, participants will also learn about using the spatial modeler to extend the LCM tool capabilities and workflows for publishing results as cloud services. Once these processes and resulting data sets become available as web services, they can be incorporated into autonomous connected ecosystems (ACE).

3308 - Sustainable Smart City Planning and Enhanced Building Permit Management

The development of smart cities requires extremely steady and frequent interaction between municipalities, companies, researchers and scientists.
Smart, vibrant, and sustainable cities require:
• Positive changes based on interactions with the inhabitants through communication and cooperation
• No limitations by organizational silos and responsibilities
• Access to detailed thematic maps, base maps, land use, and zoning plans
This presentation will describe a GeoMedia solution that supports one vital prerequisite for the implementation of smart cities. Norconsult, a consulting firm with the Norwegian mapping infrastructure, has developed an application that enables municipalities to update base maps and land use data in a common, centralized GIS database.
We will also present a new open digital solution for handling building permit applications. This solution runs a digital process for the collection of base data, distribution of registered letters to all neighbors, and delivery of the application schemas to the municipalities. This solution has made the process dramatically more efficient, produced better quality results, and improved accuracy. The applicant saves both time and money that would be spent on filing the schemas. The municipality benefits from consistently receiving complete applications that require less handling and fewer corrections, which reduces the overall time spent on processing.

3403 - Streamlining a Mobile MapWorks-Enabled Offline Field Check Workflow with GeoMedia and Spatial Model Editor

The Mapping and Charting Establishment (MCE) in Canada deploys field teams annually to conduct field checks in support of its National Mapping programs. The field checks primarily validate information about mapping data that cannot be verified using imagery or other auxiliary data. The information gathered is used to update MCE's Corporate Production Databases. The entire process is currently manual, whereby Excel spreadsheets are used to list, track, and record the information required for field inspections. Each inspection can take up to several days to complete. MCE is investigating the use of mobile technologies to streamline this process, but the lack of connectivity in the field or garrison creates challenges with setting up web services for data synchronization. A prototype was set up and demonstrated to MCE by Hexagon Geospatial in March 2018. The prototype made use of Hexagon's Mobile MapWorks (MMW) application. It demonstrated enough potential to warrant testing during the 2018 field inspections. As a result of the field tests, several recommendations were made to optimize the use of MMW for field checks. The presentation will include a demonstration of the entire offline workflow, including: creation of the raster tiles using spatial models, export/import of data from a desktop to the mobile device, simulation of field edits, export/import of data back to the desktop from the mobile device, and synchronization of the field results with the master database.
