Learn How Successful Pipeline Companies Are Mapping ROW in GIS

There are two paths to mapping pipeline right of way in GIS, but before diving into how to map it, you need to understand why you’d want to map it in the first place.

The answer is that GIS mapping provides a huge advantage over tabular data in analyzing and reporting on land assets and acquisition projects. When your GIS system works in sync with your land asset database, it can track project status by land parcel across the entire pipeline; flag upcoming lease expiries; and display contractual obligations/provisions, all from a few clicks on a digital map. It enables corporate leaders to make decisions faster and with a higher degree of accuracy than with tabular data alone.

Two major US pipeline operators, Conoco Phillips and Valero, report that by combining GIS mapping with their land records data, they can now easily:

  1. Map the status of multiple linear projects concurrently from end-to-end.
  2. Track land rights in the order of an existing or proposed line.
  3. Provide remote access for field agents.
  4. Communicate with stakeholders via a real-time web portal.
  5. Batch update large volumes of records with new information.
  6. Manage intricate obligations & provisions.

Once you’ve decided mapping your land asset ROW in the GIS is the smart thing to do, getting there is simple. It’s just a matter of deciding which resources you want to use—yours or ours:
