ArcGIS Water Facilities Model

The ArcGIS Water Facilities Model marks an important milestone for Esri and our ArcGIS Water Facilities Model screen shot and product boxwater, wastewater, and storm water user community. It represents technology for our users that sets a new standard for managing water/wastewater utility networks. This is also the first domain data model built using ArcInfo 8, and it represents the first step in the realization of the Esri vision solution for ArcGIS data models.

"Key to the Esri goal of developing a GIS standard for water/wastewater utility networks was to provide an essential data model that represents common aspects of most water/wastewater network data models," says Steve Grisť, product manager, ArcGIS Data Models, "but, at the same time, is forward thinking by addressing the kinds of applications and integration work that most utilities will want to perform."

The ArcGIS Water Facilities Model was created over a period of several years, with approximately 80 user participants and facilitated by Esri staff. The result is a data model focused on water/wastewater facilities including agreed upon definitions for feature classes, Business logic (rules for editing, etc.), and symbology that pertain to water and wastewater networks.

Users wishing to obtain a copy of the ArcGIS Water Facilities Model have several options.
