Avineon Inc. will unveil the Metrics Extension to ArcGIS for Server at the 2015 Esri User Conference, being held July 20-23 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif. The Metrics Extension gives ArcGIS users better visibility into their enterprise geodatabase by revealing trends in their global and regional data updates. 

The Metrics Extension enhances the value and usability of GIS data in ArcGIS by creating a spatial data warehouse in which key business intelligence metrics can be created and stored for historical reporting. It computes and stores key metrics such as asset quantity, length or area coverage for a specified period. Storing this data permits important historical trends to be documented and evaluated for potential performance improvements and cost savings.

One of the most common applications of the Metrics Extension is tracking the installation, operation and decommissioning of assets for telecommunications, electric, gas, oil, water, waste water and sewer utilities. For instance, a telecommunications company can use ArcGIS for Server and the Metrics Extension to determine how many miles of buried fiber its network contained on a certain day or how many linear feet of fiber were laid in the past 30 days.

Likewise, an electric utility can report the quantity and type of smart meters, poles and cable installed by month and location. Outside of the utility industry, local, state and federal government agencies can trend geodatabase objects such as fire hydrants, real property parcels, land use and environmental classifications, vegetation, and crime instances not only by neighborhood, zip code and political district but also by timeframe.

“Avineon’s Metrics Extension elevates ArcGIS geodatabase to a true spatial data warehouse for historical reporting and data analysis. Once we release, you can download the Metrics Extension and have it installed and running in less than a day,” said Joel Campbell, Avineon Vice President of Commercial Systems. “Users can expect a quick return on their investment by deploying this technology.” 

A long-time Esri Business Partner, Avineon develops and implements a wide variety of geospatial services.  “Avineon has been working closely with Esri for more than 10 years to create innovative solutions for GIS clients worldwide,” Campbell said. “We invite all Esri Conference attendees to visit our booth and learn how Avineon can make your geospatial content more intelligent.”

Avineon will demonstrate the Metrics Extension publicly for the first time in booth #1015 at the Esri User Conference, as well as offering presentations and demos of its other products. For more information on the Metrics Extension, Avineon will conduct free 30-minute webinars on Aug. 11 and 25. To register for the Aug. 11 webinar click hereTo register for the Aug.25 webinar, click here.
