    Site Data Management Solution: Using Geo Web Publisher to Manage the Site Data

    Hong Kong, China

Project Summary

Project

This HKD 200 million roadway project required Earth Solutions to design a solution for Hong Kong Highways Department Project Office to consolidate and manage all of its site-survey data so site engineers and project managers can better monitor displacement and settlement on project sites during the construction stage. To import the site data and facilitate information mobility among stakeholders and onsite project teams, Earth Solutions required a user-friendly, Web-based interface with remote accessibility.

Solution

Earth Solutions used Geo Web Publisher and Bentley Map Mobile to establish a map-based navigational website for the construction site information. Surveyors imported the data collected from the site-monitoring devices, and the system automatically published the data to Geo Web Publisher. Bentley Map Mobile provided a mobile platform for the surveyors and site engineers to view conditions via tablet devices on the construction site in real time. The new site data management solution triggers an alert when settlement and displacement values exceed a pre-defined tolerance level, enabling immediate corrective action.

Outcome

Using Bentley’s infrastructure asset performance software as the foundation for its site data management system facilitates collaboration and information mobility in real time. With a pre-defined alert system as part of the solution, site engineers can take preventive action and implement contingency plans early in the construction process, saving time and money, reducing risk, and minimizing project delays.

Software

Using Bentley Geo Web Publisher enabled Earth Solutions to integrate survey data from different sources in a user-friendly, Web GIS platform. Bentley Map Mobile ensured accessibility to the information from the construction site via tablets so the data could be retrieved when performing site inspections. Bentley GIS publishing and mapping applications provided the foundation for the site data management solution allowing surveyors, site engineers, and project managers access and interaction in real time to streamline workflows and optimize construction for roadway projects.

Outcome/Facts
  • Earth Solutions used Bentley software as the foundation for its site data management system so the Hong Kong Highways Department Project Office can manage, monitor, and consolidate all of its site-survey data.
  • Using Geo Web Publisher and Bentley Map Mobile, site engineers and project managers can better monitor site conditions during the construction stage and be alerted when settlement and displacement values exceed a pre-determined tolerance level.
  • The interoperability of Bentley software facilitates collaboration and enhances information mobility enabling site engineers and project managers to be proactive and make decisions to reduce construction delays on roadway projects, saving time and money while reducing risk.
Quote:
  • “Data itself is meaningless to site engineers and project managers. Site Data Management Solution (SDMS) is the key to link up all the data and become a meaningful story. We not only are helping them to collect and consolidate data; we also want to tell the story to our users.”
