ATLANTA, USA: GeoFields, Inc., a data management solutions provider for the pipeline industry, announced full ArcGIS Pipeline Data Model (APDM) support across the entire product suite. Pipeline operators can now leverage the power of GeoFields complete suite of applications while maintaining their pipeline data in version 4.0 of the model.
