Dyersburg Electric System (DES) Expands Use of GIS with Additional ESRI Software
Atlanta GA, June 7, 2007 – OneGIS is pleased to announce that it has completed its work on a Geographic Information System (GIS) for the City of Dyersburg with the installation of ArcGIS® Publisher and ArcReader from ESRI® for the Dyersburg Electric System. These licenses were installed and configured to run in conjunction with OneGIS’ previous implementation of ESRI GIS licenses of ArcGIS Server Enterprise – Basic and ArcEditor as well as ArcFM and ArcFM Viewer licenses from Telvent Miner & Miner. OneGIS provided overall project management as well as installation, configuration and customization services. The process of converting the City’s CAD map drawings into the ArcFM geodatabase was handled by Southeast Reprographics, Inc. (SRI) of Alpharetta, Georgia.
In addition to the ArcGIS and ArcFM implementation, OneGIS provided integration services by building interfaces between the GIS and the City’s Engineering Analysis (EA) system. This interface was built utilizing the available ArcFM Multispeak data model from Telvent Miner & Miner. In addition, OneGIS developed a custom interface between ArcFM and the City’s Customer Information System (CIS). This interface utilized an ODBC connection between the two systems to accommodate data transfer. The initial ArcFM system has been in production since January of this year.

Alan Davis, DES GIS Manager commented, “The OneGIS consultants who implemented our GIS all exhibited a real can-do, will-do attitude needed for this project and were instrumental in getting the system completed to our satisfaction.
