overview of the apdm
Overview of the APDM
  • ESRI Geodatabase model for …
      • gas and/or liquids, onshore/offshore, gathering, transmission, or distribution pipeline systems
      • Focused on pipelines that use stationed position AND XY coordinates to locate positions of features on or along the pipeline
  • APDM  ESRI Object Model Template to handle …
      • multiple forms of linear referencing
        • ESRI route and measure technology
      • hierarchical/geographical organization of pipeline features
      • Feature behavior during centerline editing operations
      • Links to external systems – ERP, Document Management, Work Order MS
  • Core Feature\Object Classes
  • Abstract Classes
overview of the model
Overview of the Model
  • APDM is the intellectual property of ESRI
    • Managed in trust by the Pipe Interest Group (Petroleum User Group)
  • Version 1.0 Build the model
      • Focus on the technology, the core and conceptual classes in the model.
  • Version 2.0 – 3.0 Link to the Enterprise
      • Refine the conceptual model, expand the core
          • Activities, External Documents, OwnerOperator, EventID
  • Version 4.0 Metadata
          • Data content
          • Schema Description and Management
          • Object behavior
          • Best Practices  Interoperability

apdm version 4 0
APDM Version 4.0
  • Abstract Classes (Core Attributes and Relationships)
      • Centerline Objects, Facility Objects, Online/Offline Objects
      • Response to editing the centerline
      • Auditing feature/object edits
  • Core Classes
      • ControlPoint, StationSeries, AltRefMeasure, Lineloop, Subsystem, SubsystemHierarchy, LineloopHierarchy, Product, OwnerOperator, SubsystemRange, Site, Activity, ActivityHierarchy, ExternalDocument
  • Metadata Classes
    • Formal definition to describe behavior of reference modes
      • Units, Basis, Type
    • Listing and APDM categorization of classes within geodatabase
      • Each class in the APDM will inherit from one of the APDM Abstract Classes
    • Online Locations for Offline Features
      • Listing of offline/online class pairs
      • Listing of calculation methods for determining derivation of online locations
  • Inline History and Auditing
  • Facilities and Non-Geometric representation of features
arcgis pipeline data model apdm8
ArcGIS Pipeline Data Model (APDM)
  • APDM Logical Model Poster – shows abstract classes, metadata classes, core classes and example concrete classes
abstract classes10
Abstract Classes
  • Object based abstract classes showing centerline objects, facility objects and non-facility objects
abstract classes11
Abstract Classes
  • Feature based abstract classes showing centerline objects, online/offline objects, facility objects and ‘online’ location objects
abstract classes inheritance
Abstract Classes- Inheritance
  • Example showing how a ‘concrete’ class is derived via inheritance from the APDM abstract classes
core classes
Core Classes
  • Represent the core classes within the model that must be implemented
  • These classes represent critical parts of a pipeline reflecting centerline editing and integration with other enterprise systems
    • ControlPoint – known points of XY and station value location for a given reference mode
    • StationSeries – a route feature built from control point for a given reference mode
    • AltRefMeasure – stores alternate reference mode information for online features
    • Lineloop – a series of connected station series forming a ‘line’ or ‘route’
    • LineloopHierarchy – ability to categorize lineloops into logical groupings
    • Subsystem – an area or zone along the pipeline used to break it up into logical regions
    • SubsystemHierarchy – ability to categorize subsystems into logical groupings
    • SubsystemRange – the ‘online’ location of a subsystem along the centerline
    • Product – the product transported by the pipeline
    • OwnerOperator – owner and operator information for the assets of a pipeline
    • Site – any site boundary on or along the pipeline
    • Activity – things that ‘happen’ during the operation and maintenance of a pipeline
    • ActivityHierarchy – ability to categorize activities into logical groupings
    • ExternalDocument – reports, regulatory and source documents that specifiy or document assets and events on or along the pipeline
metadata classes
Metadata Classes
  • Describes the internal structure of the model for validation and verification
implementing apdm
Implementing APDM
  • APDM is built for the geodatabase
    • It is an object model
    • It describes feature editing behavior
    • It provides meta-data or meta-models that can be integrated with other data models
    • APDM Core  APDM Tables  Add/modify classes and attributes
    • APDM Core  PODS Business/Feature/Event Tables  Add/modify classes and attributes
    • APDM Core  ISAT Business/Feature/Event Tables  Add/modify classes and attributes
    • APDM Core  Any pipeline data model business tables …  Add /modify classes and attributes
    • Implement APDM Abstract Tables and Core Tables
compliance and interoperability
Compliance and Interoperability
  • The purpose of APDM is to capture the ‘behavior’ of pipeline events, features and objects within an geodatabase object model
  • The purpose of APDM 4.0 abstract, metadata and core classes is to provide a standard for judging APDM compliance to allow true interoperability between vendor applications and data models
  • Interoperability could be assessed by development of a standard set of editing, reporting and analysis applications that could be applied to any APDM geodatabase
current status of the apdm
Current Status of the APDM
  • Yearly cycle
      • Accrual of ideas and feedback – ESRI UC  Gita Oil & Gas (Summer to Fall)
      • Technical Committee develop new aspects of model (Fall through Winter  ESRI PUG)
      • Model Release (Spring  ESRI UC)
  • Planned Events
      • APDM Pre-Conference Workshop – Saturday, August 12th
  • Scheduled release of proposed changes (V4.0)
      • Logical Model Poster, Physical Model UML (Visio 2002 format) available from
      • White paper will be released in sections over the next 2-3 weeks for review up until 05/2006
