Creating a unified view using GIS visualisation
Historically, three different databases modeling the Belgian railway grid have been created. They contain more than 8,800km of tracks and over 11,800 railroad switches. Two of those databases were created to support a specific process, so with an emphasis on ‘making things work’ rather than on accurately modeling the situation in the field. They contained rails, switches and equipment spread across the grid. Our mission was to reconcile these databases to build a 360° view on the assets.
