Large Florida Utility Switches to Innovyze Smart Water Technology

Tampa Bay Water Chooses InfoWater for Water Infrastructure Modeling and Management

Broomfield, Colorado USA, January 8, 2013 — Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for wet infrastructure, today announced that Tampa Bay Water, a large regional water supply authority in Florida, has adopted the company’s industry-leading InfoWater Suite software as its standard water modeling, design, and management solution. The software will serve as the foundation for managing and optimizing Tampa Bay Water wholesale drinking water distribution system.

The selection underscores the value of the company’s geocentric smart water network modeling and design solutions — tools that have made Innovyze a worldwide market leader. Among the reasons cited for the utility’s decision were the software’s many powerful tools, comprehensive functionality, speed, ease of use, flexibility, and seamless ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA) integration.

Tampa Bay Water delivers water to more than 2.3 million people in the Tampa Bay area, including: Hillsborough County, Pasco County, Pinellas County, New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. The system includes over a dozen groundwater pumping and treatment facilities, two surface water sources, a 15.5 billion gallon storage reservoir, a seawater desalination plant, and over 200 miles of water mains. Several of the municipalities that receive wholesale water from Tampa Bay Water also use InfoWater software for hydraulic modeling.

“We chose InfoWater because it integrates seamlessly with our ArcGIS platform, providing the ability to model and analyze the season changes in supply sources and daily demand patterns,” said Suzannah Folsom, Design Project Manager for Tampa Bay Water. “These tools help Tampa Bay Water plan for the future, with increased efficiency and cost-effectiveness in our delivery system.”

Built atop ArcGIS, InfoWater seamlessly integrates sophisticated analytics, systems dynamics, and optimization functionality directly within the ArcGIS setting. The InfoWater product suite comes equipped with everything water utility owner–operators need to best design, operate, secure, and sustain their distribution systems — from fire flow and water quality simulations, valve criticality, and energy cost analysis to pressure zone management and advanced Genetic Algorithm and Particle Swarm optimization. In addition, the software serves as a base platform for advanced smart network modeling, operational, capital planning, and asset management extensions. These critical applications include IWLive (real-time operations and security), InfoWater UDF (unidirectional flushing), CapPlan (risk-based capital planning), InfoMaster and InfoMaster Mobile (asset integrity management and condition assessment), InfoWater MSX (multispecies, temperature, and particle transport/deposition modeling), InfoWater BTX (event/particle backtracking), InfoSurge (surge/transient analysis), and Sustainability (carbon footprint calculation).

“We continue to invest in best-of-breed GIS-centric modeling and design solutions that are easy to implement and use, because they give our customers a significant business edge,” said J. Erick Heath, P.E., Innovyze Vice President—Business Director, Americas. “Utilities that are leaders in their field, like Tampa Bay Water, continue to upgrade to the power of Innovyze products because they deliver consistent, high-fidelity engineering GIS modeling results, enhanced efficiency, and cost-effective project plans. These advantages lead to measurable improvements in productivity, system performance, return on investment, and customer satisfaction — and ultimately, greater success.”

Leica RCD30: Better Resolution with More Details for 3D City Modeling

(Norcross,GA, 6 October, 2014) – Leica Geosystems’ RCD30 Penta Oblique system is now available with new optics. Compared to the previous configuration, which consists of lenses with 50 mm focal length for nadir and 80 mm for oblique images, the camera isnow available with 80 mm and 150 mm focal length respectively.  In combination with the new 80 MP CCD sensor, the RCD30 nowprovides data with even more detail. These new features make the RCD30 the only oblique system able to acquire 4-channel RGBNmultispectral data with 10 centimeter Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) from an altitude of 3,000 meters. No other camera on the market today offers these performance parameters. Compared to other systems, users can fly higher and achieve the same high resolution. […]
