What Is Pipeline GIS: The Features And Characteristics

By Darrell Surmons

Behind every successful and developing country, a major role is played by its import and export division. Not every country is well equipped with all kinds of raw materials. So, in order to fulfill the needs of the common people the countries have to import some of the important things from other countries. Also, for international trading some of the countries opt for an import system in order to get those goods which they are unable to produce and later on they sell these goods at a high price to other countries. So, in this process you can see that transportation plays a vital role. Goods like oil or petroleum are transported from one country to the other by mediums like oil tankers, ships etc. And, when it comes to the land it is shifted to the consumers via pipelines. Now let us understand more about what is pipeline GIS and how it helps the transportation process.

In import system, transportation is a very critical as well as a crucial part and it has to be monitored in order to be managed. Regarding the pipeline system also, most of the companies use advanced technology in order to monitor its working. This technology is known as the pipeline GIS here GIS stands for geographical information system.

With the help of pipeline GIS you can store important data in an organized manner in the system. In this system you can share, edit, investigate, present, integrate, analyze or even display the data.

A GIS pipeline helps the pipeline company to gather more information about the working procedure of their pipeline system.

This kind of a technology is so helpful that you can solve any sort of a problem rising from the pipeline system. The pipeline GIS will monitor the working procedure of the pipeline system so effectively that all sorts of mistakes and problems can be rectified easily.

Pipeline GIS has got a basic advantage and that is you can get your desired result in less time. Here, the monitoring system is done in such a fast rate that the result will be achieved very quickly.

The GIS is a set of tools whose basic function is to monitor, analyze and collect the pipeline system data. Under the GIS system, functions like marketing, monitoring, investigating, logistics and also asset management system are included.

Pipeline GIS is a very advanced technology for monitoring pipeline. It is used by a lot of pipeline companies. Some of the well known developers of pipeline GIS are the MapInfo, ESRI, Autodesk and Intergraph. In the coming years with the incorporation of more advanced technologies like internet, satellite, GPS in its system, the pipeline GIS will reach even greater heights.

Tracking imports and exports of petroleum products and similar commodities is made easier by using pipeline GIS. Pipeline alignment sheets are part of the tracking system to optimize product flow.
