SmartFootprint™ Provides GIS Users:
The capability to create, analyze, query, investigate, and visualize optimal plans, routes, and sites for consideration
Accurate estimates for costs
Cost estimates for manually-edited routing features
High-resolution route elevation profile
Detailed crossing reports (e.g. roads, streams, etc.)
Tools for optimized site selection facilities
Easy-to-use ArcGIS geo-processing models
Template ArcMap map documents
Documentation designed specifically to support pipeline routing and reporting
Earth Analytic SmartFootprint™ Tools
Weighted overlay toolset for ArcGIS Desktop that generates a hierarchical suite of raster ‘cost surfaces’, or heat maps, representing relative plan/route/site suitability.
Plan/route/site selection tool that automates route selection through least cost path and corridor analysis.
Plan/route/site reporting tool that displays and summarizes the type, identification, and stationing of line crossings and provides an itemized estimate of construction costs.
Route profile tool that generates an elevation profile and an associated data table for a proposed route.
Site selection tool that delineates and ranks zones of relative suitability for locating facilities.
Site assessment tool that characterizes the physiography (e.g. average slope, cut/fill parameters) and relative suitability (summary statistics for SmartFootprint™ scores) of zones defined by the SiteFinder tool.
Earth Analytic SmartFootprint™ Data Bundles
SmartFootprint™ Data Bundles are integrated sets of environmental and economic suitability GIS datasets that support optimized planning, construction and management.
- Plug and play input to SmartFootprint™ ArcGIS Server & Arc GIS Desktop Extensions
- Thematic map overlays and web services
- Input to custom GIS workflows
HEAT MAPPER COST SURFACES
Color-coded heat maps combine many environmental and engineering criteria, and are used to guide plans, routes, and facilities construction. Examples:
- Land Use & Zoning
- Water Resources
Suite of input datasets and derived criteria rasters (e.g. stream proximity) used to create a final (default) SmartFootprint™ Route Selection cost surface for the project area.
Suite of input datasets and derived criteria rasters (e.g. contiguous zones of moderate slope) used to create a final (default) Facility Site Selection SmartFootprint™ cost surface for the project area.
