GOAL:

To improve the accuracy and efficiency of preliminary utility location by employing common CADD software and utility-specific tools to create electronic plan mark-ups.

traditional process
Traditional Process:
  • Conduct topographic survey
  • Designer produces plan sheets with topo survey and 30% design
  • Mailed to UAO with request for mark-up
  • UAO marks up plan sheet with colored pencil using UAO drafting standard
  • UAO returns hardcopy plans to designer
  • Designer transfers hardcopy information into CADD file
  • Designer produces hardcopy and sends to UAO for verification
electronic process
Electronic Process:
  • Notify UAO’s of upcoming project
  • Conduct topographic survey
  • Designer transmits survey & blank mark-up file to UAO
      • MicroStation (DGN) Format, unless previously coordinated
  • UAO’s conduct mark-up with CADD and FDOT Utility Tools
  • UAO returns mark-up file to designer (topo survey excluded)
  • Designer compiles UAO mark-ups to produce plan sheets
  • Designer transmits PDF to UAO via email for verification
benefits
Benefits:
  • Time Savings (reduction in request/response)
  • Encourages Standardization of Plan Mark-up
  • Allows Historical Archiving for Wide-Scale Use
  • Improved Accuracy and Clarity of Plan Submittal
  • Eliminates Need for Hardcopy Retention
  • Format Promotes Internal/External Use
  • Reduced Paper Consumption (Save the Trees!)
  • Reduced liability

Use and Feedback:

Use and feedback are necessary at this early stage in the process to achieve meaningful results.

  • Unification of ASCE Quality Standards
  • Symbology Standardization
  • Tool Development

Element Tagging (Ad-Hoc):

What is Ad-Hoc Tagging?

Assigning (tagging) extraneous information to CADD elements that is not typically visible to the user.

Element Tagging (Ad-Hoc):

Why use Ad-Hoc Tagging for Utilities?

  • Inventory and asset management
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Labeling

Element Tagging (Ad-Hoc):

How to tag Ad-Hoc’s

Currently…

  • ACAD – pending development (VBA?)
  • MicroStation w/ Civil Extension – SiteMenu VBA
  • MicroStation w/ Geopak – Ad Attribute Manager or SiteMenu VBA

Future…

  • SiteMenu VBA Tool
