MapMergerTM repositions network assets to align with a more accurate landbase.
Example: A gas and electric company has their network assets plotted with respect to a spatially inaccurate street map.
MapMergerTM’s new asset realignment tools automatically adjust the assets to align with a more accurate street map. Importantly, unlike most realignment tools, MapMergerTM does not use inherently inaccurate “rubber sheeting” to perform the adjustment.
Rather, MapMergerTM ensures that the offsets between the assets and their closest street are maintained. Pipelines that are 10 meters south of the road in the original map will be 10 meters south of the same road in the new map.
