CoriMap - Automated 3D Corridor Mapping
CoriMap is a new software solution that offers a complete Field to Finish
solution for corridor mapping applications. It includes over 50 functions
specifically designed to assist in the automated production and maintenance
of high quality 2D and 3D corridor map products.
CoriMap was born out of an extensive
custom development contract with Conoco Pipe Lines in the late 1990's.
This involvement solidified our tools in response to real world use, processing
thousands of miles of pipeline drawings. In the succeeding years the tool
set has been molded by project application to long haul and last mile fiber
optic projects for Level 3, MFN and RCN as well as Municipal Utility projects.
Today CoriMap is an automated mapping solution with years of experience in
many facets of Corridor Mapping. We have automated solutions for those who
collect field data manually and for
those who use GPS and want a fast turn around, totally
automated solution - we call this the Automated Digital Walkout.
the data collected with Trimble® GPS Systems
CoriMap uses the 3D output of Trimbles GPS Pathfinder Office to
create a complete 3D AutoCAD basemap that conforms to any user specified
project standard. Each feature collected by the GPS system is faithfully
reproduced complete with 3D linework and all attributes.
repair GPS elevation irregularities
In a perfect world, the 3D Polylines generated by GPS systems would be
continuously accurate in XY&Z, but in reality errors can be introduced,
especially in the elevation readings. CoriMap includes automated
tools to easily review and modify the elevation data.
True Distance Stationing
CoriMap is unique among mapping systems because it fully utilizes the
3D field data collected by the GPS system, automatically calculating and
recording the Slope Station (True 3D Distance), Offset Distance and Offset
Direction for each GPS point feature.
Quickly rearrange large groups of attributes in Station Order with user
specified attribute placement. Many formatting options available, including
Offset, Stacked and Indent.
Industrial Strength Profiling
CoriMap can instantly generate a formatted profile of a single baseline
or an entire corridor represented by hundreds of drawings. These profiles
are generated directly from the 3D Baseline and do not require a DTM.
A special Frame mode can create an Alignment Sheet of one or more drawings
Editing tools specialized for large projects
Block Redefine will make sure all drawings use the same name blocks with
the same definitions. Point Connect will connect the dots. Assemble system
drawings with Select & Insert Blocks. Over 15 special block and editing
Manage twisted views, automatically place sheet titleblocks along a corridor
baseline, cut linework features that cross matchlines and write the individual
Batch Processing for Unattended
Many of the CoriMap functions can be applied unattended to groups of drawings
representing an entire corridor. Stations and profile information is automatically
tracked between sheets.
