Providing Data and Maintenance Tools for Ongoing Data Upkeep

The City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department is required to comply with the GIS component of a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit set forth by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality. Permit requirements state that the City must provide a geospatial data layer showing all stormwater pipes and direction of flow, along with a point layer showing the locations of all storm drain inlets and catch basins.

Psomas developed an Esri geodatabase from existing as-built drawings and developed a customized maintenance application based on Esri’s ArcGIS 10 system and Infrastructure Editing Tools. A custom geodatabase data dictionary was provided with illustrative examples of asset types and diagrams for using specific feature types.
