Using Lucity Inspection Data with ArcGIS for Local Government

In the upcoming version of Lucity we are making it easier to take advantage of the various maps and apps for inspection data that are part of Esri® ArcGIS for Local Government, while still utilizing Lucity as the main repository for your asset management and inspection data.  More information on ArcGIS for Local Government, including the gallery where you can preview some of the maps and apps, can be found here.

The following inspection and testing modules are available for export to the ArcGIS for Local Government Information Model (LGIM): Sewer MACP Inspections, Sewer Overflows, Sewer Structure Inspections, Storm MACP Inspections, Storm Sampling, Water Hydrant Flow Tests, Water Hydrant Inspections, Water Losses, and Water System Valve Inspections.

In ArcCatalog and within the Geodatabase Configuration Tool, you can easily perform the necessary configurations.  You can either use the Import Feature Classes from Schema tool to automatically import the default schema for these inspection feature classes as they are found in the LGIM, or you can manually add the feature class schema using the Add Feature Class tool.

Once an inspection feature class has been configured with Lucity it can be loaded with Lucity inspection data through a Scheduled Task.  Scheduled Tasks are new with the upcoming Lucity release and will provide the ability for Lucity inspection data to be written to the geodatabase via a feature service.  This feature service can be configured in ArcCatalog for each inspection feature class.

Scheduled tasks can be added when you right-click on the feature class node in the Lucity Geodatabase configuration tool and select Add>>Scheduled Task.  2013-10-28_1641

When a scheduled task is added for an inspection module, the Task Type will be automatically set to synchronize Lucity to GIS.

The default will be set to synchronize all records from the Lucity inspection module.  However, under Filter Options you could change that to a filtered set and select a predefined filter.  For example, you may only want to export inspection data from the past year or for a particular status.

There are also numerous options available for the Scheduled Task.

Only process records modified since last run date– This option will only export records from Lucity that have been editing since the last time the Scheduled Task ran.  This option is recommended if you are exporting all inspection data from Lucity.

Insert record if it doesn’t already exist– This option should be checked if you wish for new features to be created in the feature class.

Update existing record– This option should be checked if you wish for the existing feature to be updated with the Lucity inspection data.

Delete previous inspection(s) for asset– This option should be checked if you wish for the feature class to only contain the most recent inspection for each asset.

You can find more information on using this tool in the Lucity online Help.  Please leave a comment below if you have any questions or suggestions.
