After earthquakes demolished 70% of the downtown buildings in Christchurch, New Zealand, SCIRT – the city’s horizontal structures rebuild team – is using FME to integrate data from multitudes of disparate sources and analyse it.
FME Server is being used to progress aspects of the rebuild including data acquisition, scoping and damage assessment, design, construction, transport, commercial, management reporting and GIS, as well as multi-organisation programmes regarding forward works. Spatial and non-spatial data from 20+ organizations is integrated using FME Server to form a 600+ layer GIS and provides both data and analytics-powered location intelligence for the city’s rebuild.
The integration & analyses of horizontal rebuild data went so smoothly that FME has been implemented outside spatial data projects such as in finance and scheduling, and is being explored for scopes beyond the city’s rebuild.
Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT), is the organisation working to rebuild horizontal infrastructure in Christchurch, New Zealand following the 2010-2011 earthquakes.
