Case Study

KUWAIT UTILITIES – DATA CONVERSION

The customer is a multidisciplinary architecture and engineering consulting firm which has its presence throughout the MENA region. Their Geo-spatial division has played a major role in planning and executing smart grid and smart city solutions in this region. As part of a project, the customer needed to convert the electrical and water network for the six governorates of Kuwait based on the given pre-designed geodatabase, basemap layers, utility network templates and satellite imageries.

SOLUTION METHODOLOGY

NeST IT developed a solution for the customer, where the conversion would be handled competitively and within the prescribed timeframe by an oshore team working from our development centre in India.

The services rendered to the customer included conversion of vast data of electrical (transmission & distribution) and water (fresh water and brackish water) utility networks for the six governorates of Kuwait. Pre-configured personal geodatabase and few A0 size CAD file/tiff templates for reference were shared by the customer, based on which the data engineers initiated and furnished their respective tasks. The conversion practices were executed in Esri ArcGIS environment. The final geodatabase was sent to the client after a thorough quality check using the tools developed for this particular project. 12 custom tools were developed as part of this project for the production enhancement and execution of QA/QC tasks.
