Introduction to Gas and Pipeline Referencing Utility Network Foundation

Gas and Pipeline Referencing Utility Network Foundation can be used to accelerate a unified utility network and ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing implementation for gas and hazardous liquid pipelines.

It configures ArcGIS Enterprise, the ArcGIS Utility Network, and ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing to represent gas and hazardous liquid pipelines as a single pipe system with both connected topology and linear referencing. This solution features the Utility and Pipeline Data Model (UPDM) and includes common gas and pipeline data management workflows. It deploys foundational services, simplifying the creation of additional web and mobile apps and provides a desktop data editing environment and is typically implemented by vertically integrated gas utilities, and gas and hazardous liquid pipeline operators that want an efficient way to manage gas and pipeline assets.

Starting with Gas and Pipeline Referencing Utility Network Foundation means organizations don't have to spend their time and implementation budget on building custom data models and information products.
