Missouri Utilities Mapping

During a two month period in the summer of 2013, CompassData collected GNSS data for approximately 300 miles of natural gas pipeline and approximately 2500 natural gas meters. The GNSS data was used to produce an accurate “as-built” map of the pipeline to assist with management and maintenance.

Screenshot of the natural gas pipeline datum displayed with imagery, Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, USA.

The survey team also documented “problem areas” (e.g. areas where the pipeline was non-existant, areas where the pipeline and meter installation was incomplete, etc…) by taking geo-referenced pictures of the locations and assigning attributes to the pictures describing nature of the problem.
