Data Fitness

Data Fitness: The Quality-as-a-Service cloud-based solution.  Poor data quality costs the US economy alone an estimated $3.1B/year and is directly responsible for loss of life.  With the massive increase in data sources from numerous sources, the need to quantify geospatial data quality has become paramount. Apply optimized statistical sampling to review your data in an unbiased and repeatable manner to find hard-to-measure data quality errors of omission, commission, and attribute accuracy.  Evaluate, score and quantify your geospatial data's fitness-for-use. Download White Paper

Geospatial data is an abstraction of reality and as such there will always have some semblance of error in the data.  There are well accepted criteria for evaluating the spatial accuracy of the data but there is no standardized method for evaluating the softer aspects of quality such as errors of omission, errors of commission and attribute correctness and completeness. What is your geospatial data good for? How does the quality of a new data set compare to that of an existing one? Don’t guess - use Data Fitness to measure the quality of your data.

Standards exist to assess the relative and absolute accuracies of geospatial data but there is no standard for assessing the quality of data - until now.  Data Fitness is a Quality-As-A-Service offering that delivers a quality diagnostic for data that helps evaluate and quantify the data's fitness for use. Our Map Tolerance Percent Defect (MTPD) diagnostic quantifies errors of omission (things missed), errors of commission (over collected), and attribute accuracy which allows you to then compare one data set to another - particularly valuable when new data is pouring into your enterprise. Now you can clearly answer which data set is better and by how much.  In addition,

Findmax

Findmax

for Microstation.


Developed during the course of a mobile lidar feature extraction project, the FindMax tool is rooted in QA/QC procedures. FindMax only looks for differences in the Z dimension, therefore you will likely find it more useful to view the data set from a front view rather than the typical top view.

Find Max is installed as an MDL application that can be run inside Microstation and can be loaded by key in or from the menu.

Watchdog

Watchdog

for Microstation.


The key to cutting software cost over-runs, Watch Dog tracks license usage in multi-user environments, keeping users from exceeding license total and encountering unnecessary/expensive license fees.

Microstation has a licensing model that allows you to use more than you have purchased but it will then bill you, creating potential for huge cost overruns. This tool monitors license usage and stops users from going beyond the license count setting. 

It only took one big bill from Bentley to get this tool developed. It has saved Continental Mapping thousands of dollars.

Finishing Mill

Finishing Mill

for Microstation.


Finishing Mill is a MicroStation app that expedites the completion of a project. Whether you are building data for yourself, others in your organization or an external client, Finishing Mill will help you polish off the project. Finishing Mill facilitates text placement across several data types and final file preparation.Like most Foundry products, Finishing Mill cuts clicks without cutting corners. Finishing Mill was developed to cut out up to a day of busy work prepping a dataset for delivery. As they say, time is money.

Finishing Mill contains three text placement tools for hydrography, roads and railroads. Hydro Name Params, Road Name Params, and Railroad Name Params set text size and font parameters and facilitate the Place Text command. The Grid Placement command prompts the user to identify the size of the grid in design file units, whether or not to place annotation and if so, whether to place it inside or outside the grid.

Functions include:

  • Detaches all reference files
  • Compresses the design file
  • Sets the active level to 63
  • Turns on all levels
  • Sets the view to top
  • Fits the design file to the screen
  • Sets the weight on
  • Turns off the grid
  • Saves the current settings
  • Deletes any type 66 elements

Geosieve

Geosieve

for QGIS - Coming Summer 2016.


GeoSieve is designed to make it easier to find outlier attribute values such as typos or otherwise mistyped information and review them quickly. This tool comes out of our global mapping processes where we regularly process datasets that cover entire countries. We needed a sieve to quickly filter out all the outlier attributes across multiple attributes and features classes.

Line Runner

Line Runner

for ArcGIS


Clean up the vertices along linear networks where 3 or more segments intersect.

Line Runner works by moving through connected network features with identical attributes and merging them back together. 

While mapping a river region in the south pacific, Continental Mapping analysts were dismayed when many network features were disconnected at their vertices during an outside process. Line Runner was developed to resolve this issue with efficiency.
