Enstar Natural Gas Company & Alaska Map Science

Enstar Natural Gas Company & Alaska Map Science used FME to perform the rapid migration of a large volume of AutoCAD drawings into an Esri ArcSDE Geodatabase.

Enstar migrated 5,000 AutoCAD drawings of their natural gas lines into a new GIS mapping system. FME allowed them to accomplish the complex data transformation while maintaining important associated data, all within a tight deadline.

FME’s data conversion and transformation capabilities enabled Enstar to use information that was previously inaccessible in the CAD files and ensured that no information was lost during translation.

Enstar Natural Gas Company provides natural gas service to approximately 340,000 customers in South Central Alaska via 3,000 miles of distribution lines and 450 miles off high-pressure transmission lines.
