Customize CPD dictionaries to add or modify feature definitions for use with an organization’s data. Multiple dictionaries can also be created and maintained with the CPD Dictionary Editor.
Within an enterprise environment, data can be grouped by sub-agencies allowing organizations to assign unique data ranges to different departments or offices allowing for easy identification of data sources. The assignment is based on Feature Object Identifiers (FOIDs) that include a sub-agency prefix.
With CPD Usage Manager you will be able to set up usages that are a fundamental to the organizational structure for the CPD source data. Usages are set up in a hierarchical structure starting from a source level. This allows users to organize data for various uses such as generalization or versioning while still maintaining a relationship to the source level.
Create users that can simultaneously access the same database. Roles can be assigned to each user to allow only specific tasks to be carried out or to allow certain privileges for data access.
Data can be loaded into the CPD database from a variety of GIS sources. During the load, data can be validated against data models ensuring that feature object classification, attribution and geometry meet an organization’s standards. Data can be easily loaded from batch files as a background process.
The CPD publisher replicates feature objects and attributes for use by CARIS and third party products that use Oracle® 10g Locator data. The formatting of data is ideal for web mapping with applications such as CARIS Spatial Fusion Enterprise.
Data replication can be done on demand or as a regularly scheduled background process.
Database Views and Joins can be applied to published data in order to enhance the presentation of data or to integrate it with other databases in an Enterprise environment.
The CPD Application Programming Interface (API) assists users to integrate and use the source data stored in the database with external applications. The CPD API is based on PL/SQL functions, procedures and views presented, which can be accessed via regular Oracle® tools such as SQL*Plus and through other programming tools supported by Oracle®.
Create and maintain the CPD Data Model by defining the structure for loading and maintaining source data in a seamless database. Data Models are based on international or regional standards and can be adapted to meet an organization’s requirements.
The CPD schema is the framework used to support data models and system administration. With the CPD schema, data models define real world objects using:
Since Feature and spatial objects are independent, the schema allows the geometry of one spatial object to support one or more feature objects.
Manage data sources including documents and images in association with projects. Registry information can also be maintained for the data sources.
Manage your CPD workflow by creating projects that are assigned specific tasks, timelines, priorities, coverages and data sources.
