Avineon Inc. will unveil the Metrics Extension to ArcGIS for Server at the 2015 Esri User Conference. The Metrics Extension gives ArcGIS users better visibility into their enterprise geodatabase by revealing trends in their global and regional data updates.

“Avineon’s Metrics Extension elevates ArcGIS geodatabase to a true spatial data warehouse for historical reporting and data analysis,” says Joel Campbell, Avineon vice president of commercial systems. “Once we release, you can download the Metrics Extension and have it installed and running in less than a day.”

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 will demonstrate the Metrics Extension publicly for the first time in booth 1015 at the Esri User Conference July 20-23 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego.
