Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions has announced Nanjing Gas will deploy G/Gas, Intergraph’s next-generation solution for gas geofacilities management, as the enabling technology of a comprehensive Geospatial Resource Management (GRM) system. By 2008, Nanjing is expected to have a pipeline network of more than 1,900 kilometers with gas consumption of 430 million cubic meters and 3,500,000 household customers.
G/Gas will give Nanjing a platform to supply detailed asset network information to management throughout the organization. G/Gas provides a suite of geofacilities management applications based on gas distribution industry-best practices. The application helps to integrate key corporate systems and streamline day-to-day tasks of design and maintenance. Nanjing chose G/Gas for its open data format, configurable gas network modeling capabilities and its commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)-based approach.
