Applus+ currently deploy Graphic Information System (GIS) mapping to track all field assets related to the petroleum industry. GIS for oil and gas assets include pipelines, fittings, gauge settings, lease information, tank farms, Cogen plants and sensitive receptors. The geomatics surveying services at Applus+ utilises industry-standard ESRI software for GIS data collection, storage and retrieval. This data can be made available via the InSite application, transferred directly to the client or served as a hybrid solution. The field collections are performed by trained and certified GPS Technicians with Trimble GEO units with accuracy down to 1 foot. Applus+ have been performing services in geomatics surveying since 2007, and we have become a reference for our GIS work.
Geomatics surveying and GIS mapping have many business applications. The majority of our GIS mapping work consists of documenting existing assets. We also perform pipeline GIS mapping to track and document construction projects, routing/easement and optimisation of pipeline routes. Geomatics surveying also has many uses in the field of environmental regulation and compliance.
The benefits of deploying a team of GIS surveying and geomatics experts from Applus+ include:

Laser NDT scanning of a site or facility generates a 'point cloud', which serves as the platform for a series of deliverables. The laser scanned point cloud
itself is spatially aware and can capture measurements across all planes. Common laser scan to point cloud applications include as-built documentation, job planning, safety planning, phased construction planning, fit and clash detection, planar analysis, tank inspection and analysis and QA/QC for the fabrication industry. Once the field-scanning portion is completed, we can generate multiple deliverables for the client. The point cloud itself is inter-operable with industry leading vendors such as AutoDesk, Aveva PDS, Bentley, InoVX, ESRI, etc.
