    Creation of Base Map and Digitization of Water Supply Network

    For the water supply network of the Paris metropolitan area

    Background and Objectives

    Magnasoft, as a subcontractor is involved in the digitization of the water supply network for Paris metropolitan area. Magnasoft's partner company is a leading Topography and Geomatics services company in France and the prime vendor of this project.

    Key Aspects of the Project

    • Creation of base road map with the help of customized tools for data entry and placement/attribution
    • Creation of digital map of water supply network using the base road map as reference

      Creation of digital map of water supply network

    Services Rendered and Methodology

    • Organization of general road map data
    • The road map is divided into 3 different layers:
      • Base road map containing main roads and road number
      • Objects imported form road features database (BD Topo)
      • Scanned cadastral boundaries/property plates

        Scanned cadastral boundaries
    • Basic BD Topo Map (Topo database)
      • De-archiving or retrieval of objects from Topo database
      • Topological processing
      • Organization of data before integration

        Organization of data before integration
    • Basic Cadastre raster map
      • Scanning of raster plates
      • De-archiving/recovery of coordinates from grid-crosses on plates
      • Coordinate transformation into RGF 93 using CIRCE software
      • Embedding of plates using MicroStation with the module DCARTES using the coordinates calculated with CIRCEms)
    • Basic Road Map
      • Data entry of the elements of the road map using MicroStation
      • Development of customized tools for intelligent and controlled data entry
      • Customized interface for data entry of road centerlines, road literals, linking between road numbers and main roads and metadata information
      • Orientation of roadway numbers based on fixed placement rules
      • Digitalization of main roads on basic cadastre raster map with BD Topo as reference
      • Attribution of road code to main roads using the help of the road 'label' tool
      • The tool helps the user in verifying road codes, prevents re-use of road codes, choice of placing permitting compatibility with the automatic increase in size depending on the scale without superimposing the text on the roadway
      • Creation of intelligent road numbers whereby numbers may be labeled either by unitary allocation or all together after digitization; numbers once linked change colour and cannot be reselected
      • Attributes linked to a roadway number are stored in the form of a label that can be continuously verified using the label tool
    • Digitization of water supply network
      • Georeferencing of cadastral maps with network lines using the base road map vector data
      • Digitization of water network lines
      • Attribution of network lines and placement of cells
