 Talk Description

Auckland Transport Database Operations Manual (ATDOM) Update:  This presentation provides conference attendees with an update of what has been produced to date, the review process, and what the future actions are. The ATDOM was spawned out of the merging of 7 local authority databases as part of the "Supercity" policy.  The 7 legacy databases had been populated by a range of different suppliers using a range of different methods and practices.

Following merging, the net result was a huge asset register with varying degrees of consistency and completeness across the assets.  The ATDOM aims to establish a consistent framework for which all future data will be collected, and existing and new data maintained.  The ATDOM is the first of its kind, a local authority specific document that aims to bridge the gap between local authority information management requirements and the current document State Highway Database Operations Manual (SHDOM) which is really only applicable to State Highway corridors.
