Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD) & CAD Masters

Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD) needed to continuously synchronize data between multiple disparate systems to manage their sewer data.

They worked with CAD Masters, and chose FME Desktop to automate these tasks. The base maps from Esri ArcSDE are now synchronized with AutoCAD Map 3D Enterprise, their front end application for creating and editing their sewer data, which uses Oracle as the database management system. FME workflows also synchronize new sewer features and their unique identifier which have been created in Maximo, their asset management system, with Map 3D.

These workflows were created using the graphical user interface of FME Desktop, which provides pre-built data transformation tools in a drag-and-drop environment while visually showing the flow of data from start to finish. They also used the Logger tool to provide a paper trail of the synchronizations made.

SASD is a sewer utility providing service to more than one million people in the Sacramento region.

“One of my favorite things in FME is the Logger. In anything that I do I like to have a paper trail of the synchronization path. It’s a log file that’s both graphical and tabular that shows you all the features that have been translated.” -- Drew Burgasser, CAD Masters
