Accurate Landbase Plus Full Address Intelligence
With the introduction of advanced database conflation technologies, GDT
brings a new dimension of business intelligence to its customers. Now
utilities with major investments in proprietary landbases can benefit from
GDT's wealth of attribute information, superior positional accuracy, and
cost-effective data management procedures - all without abandoning their
Database conflation at GDT is a technician-monitored software operation
that imports information from one database into another. The operation is
designed to automatically recognize important features in the source
database, correlate them with features in the target, precisely overlay
points and lines, reposition vectors, and add attribute information.
Nearby elements are moved automatically while their relative positions are
GDT is able to achieve an excellent level of congruence between the
source and target datasets. A pilot project with Florida Power and Light
[see related story] resulted in a dataset with 3 meter accuracy. In
subsequent conflation processes, segments representing the same geography
were conflated with an accuracy well under 0.3 meters.
Leveraging Your Landbase
Conflation technology allows GDT to respond to a variety of scenarios.
For example, a positionally accurate landbase can be conflated with GDT's
street data to provide a spatially accurate street network with full
address intelligence - a resource valuable enterprise-wide for
operational, marketing, and strategic activities.
Or GDT can work with you to migrate existing facilities information to
a GDT-centerline, permitting utilities to make use of GDT's preeminent
database management capabilities. Benefits include simplified updating
cycles, reduced overhead, and access to up-to-date data from a variety of
