Relying on outdated, incomplete, inaccurate as-built alignment sheets?

You wouldn’t plan a cross-country trip with a 1950’s vintage map atlas. Nor should you operate your pipeline with badly out-of-date alignment sheets. Critical operations decisions demand up-to-date, accurate information. With the power of TurboRoute’s automated alignment sheet generation at your command, the most critical view of your pipeline assets can be put in the hands of your staff at the speed of now.

Flexible Pipeline Data Management

In the pre-digital age, as-built alignment sheets were the system of record: alignment sheets were your data. The digital era demands a paradigm shift. In a world where the enterprise database powers data management, and the Geographic Information System (GIS) drives data visualization, the role of alignment sheet changes. No longer a repository for data, the alignment sheet evolves into a data product – a graphical report you produce from your database.

TurboRoute is a report generator. Unlike most reporting tools, TurboRoute doesn’t produce tabular reports. Instead, TurboRoute generates map-based, graphical reports – digital alignment sheets. Derived from the latest, most up-to-date information in your database or GIS, TurboRoute digital alignment sheets are as current as the latest data entry.

Rather than a tabular report template, TurboRoute’s digital alignment sheets are driven by graphical templates. With a simple, powerful interface, TurboRoute lets you define the template that determines the layout of your digital alignment sheets. You pick the GIS layers and tables to display, and you decide how to display them. Because TurboRoute is template-based, there’s no reason to be stuck with just one sheet layout – you can have multiple, fit-for-purpose templates. With its powerful cartographic engine and text overposting resolution features, TurboRoute ensures your critical pipeline data is displayed clearly and legibly.

 

Automation

The desktop version of TurboRoute includes interactive tools for batch alignment sheet production, suitable for use by most small and midsized companies. For companies operating thousands of miles of pipelines, fully automated sheet production via TurboRoute’s TurboPy add-on accelerates sheet production to the max.

By monitoring a user-defined collection of data attributes, TurboPy detects key data changes and automatically generates new sheets as needed. Set it up and let TurboRoute do all the work for you.

Data Driven

TurboRoute runs inside of Esri’s world-leading desktop GIS, ArcMap. The tool consumes any data source accessible to ArcMap – shapefiles, CADD drawings, geodatabase feature classes, Portal or ArcGIS Online feature layers, imagery, digital terrain layers; the list goes on. Also, TurboRoute can easily connect to external tabular sources, including relational database tables. TurboRoute has powerful built-in data processing functionality, enabling to project offline features on to your pipeline centerline.

This means that almost any data layer, online or offline, points, lines, or polygons can be projected into an alignment sheet data band. TurboRoute’s only real data requirement is a centerline polyline representing your pipeline. TurboRoute’s unprecedented data flexibility makes it compatible with completely unstructured data sources, and also with structured industry standard databases like ISAT, PODS, APDM and UPDM.

Features

  • Maximize Situational Awareness: Up-to-date alignment sheets ensure that users always see an accurate representation of the current state of your pipeline assets.
  • Optimize Data Visualization: Multiple templates provide stakeholders with fit-for-purpose views of their data.
  • Automated Production: Automated sheet production maximizes staff productivity.
  • Enhance Data Integration: Unmatched data flexibility makes TurboRoute a data integration platform, allowing you to see data from multiple enterprise data silos displaying in full spatial context.
