1Spatial adds Linear Reference System (LRS) support to 1Integrate

Release 2.3 makes spatial data management tool even more valuable to transport and utility companies

1Spatial, the global geospatial software and solutions company, announces the latest version of its popular spatial data management solution: 1Integrate 2.3.

With 1Integrate 2.3, organisations that record and manage assets using a Linear Reference System (LRS) location can now use the power of 1Integrate to validate, integrate and generate their LRS data.

What is a Linear Reference System and why is this important?

Many transport and utility sector organisations record the location of an asset (e.g. a road-sign, signal box, water valve or pylon) as being a certain distance from a known point along a recognised network line; for example, “10 metres along the A603”. However, because real-world features such as pipelines and roads are represented with simplified and straightened lines, LRS measures must be stored on the network to ensure the simplification does not affect the calculated location of the assets. 1Spatial brings this useful functionality to 1Integate’s powerful data management rules, allowing LRS data to be validated, corrected or converted between a geometry representation and an LRS representation.

What is 1Integrate?

Built around 1Spatial’s innovative, rules-based technology, 1Integrate enables the automation of time-consuming, expensive – but critical – data tasks like quality assessment, ensuring compliance with standards, data integration and data fixup.

It allows organisations to assess the quality of data to ensure it meets defined specifications and is fit for purpose. It also performs data re-engineering tasks, such as cleaning data, transforming data or creating new data from existing data assets.

The software reduces scope for manual error and reduces manual intervention to an exception-only basis. In turn, this saves time and frees up skilled staff to focus on innovation.

Other new features in Release 2.3

  • Updated platform support for:
    • Oracle Linux 7.4
    • Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3
    • SQL Server 2012 Release 2
  • New “rule_name” function to report the name of the failing rule within an action which provides a way to create a single generic reporting action for all rules
  • Improved reporting of hotspots for built-in functions that report duplicates, kick-backs and self-intersections
  • Other fixes and improvements, including to SOAP API

Additional information

1Integrate 2.3 is available now.

1Spatial’s Head of Product Management Seb Lessware said, “This latest release of 1Integrate will be especially valuable to organisations that manage linear networks and assets within those networks. The support for LRS and the other new features in this release come as a result of working closely with our customers and we’re delighted to respond to their needs with this new functionality.”
