Overview

Pipeline companies are always under regulatory, financial, and ultimately public pressures to make sure design, construction, operations, and decommissioning are conducted as efficiently and responsibly as possible. This book reviews how geomatics is helping pipeline companies innovate and meet these demands by describing its influence on pipeline engineering, construction, integrity, regulatory compliance, assessing impacts on our environment, and the growing volumes of data that require managing. The goal of this book is to provide pipeline and other engineering professionals with a thorough look at pipeline geomatic practices and some thoughts on where geomatics is leading us. With this knowledge, we are better equipped to understand the changes occurring in our industry and will be well prepared to seek further expert advice as we venture forward.
