S.M.A.R.T. map: Site map attribute retrieval technique

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Plant Engineering`s Space and Site Planning (S&SP) organization at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has developed a new tool, which is a computerized mapping system that can graphically illustrate facility characteristics. The current ``base`` map being used is the LLNL Site Map prepared by Plant Engineering`s CADD Support group. Using current information in the Facility Information Tracking System (FITS) database, a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, an electronic sort can be made, tying in the AutoCAD-generated site map to specific database fields. This link is accomplished by using a software overlay called the CadPLUS InfoEngine. The fields in the database include such ... continued below

Description

Plant Engineering`s Space and Site Planning (S&SP) organization at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has developed a new tool, which is a computerized mapping system that can graphically illustrate facility characteristics. The current ``base`` map being used is the LLNL Site Map prepared by Plant Engineering`s CADD Support group. Using current information in the Facility Information Tracking System (FITS) database, a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, an electronic sort can be made, tying in the AutoCAD-generated site map to specific database fields. This link is accomplished by using a software overlay called the CadPLUS InfoEngine. The fields in the database include such things as, facility number, occupant program, population, facility age, facility quality, security level, etc. By selecting one or a combination of the fields, a map is generated, illustrating in color and hatch patterns the facilities or entities that are associated with the chosen fields. This process can be very useful for seeing the LLNL site at a glance, with highlighted characteristics for particular areas of interest. The generation of large complex graphics, using large-scale databases selectively, can be accomplished quickly. These extractions and links between data and graphics create a S.M.A.R.T. Map.
