Transparent Earth runs on the largest and most secure cloud infrastructure in the world. Transparent Earth is composed of patented integration tools and business processes that are uniquely designed to improve all phases of the asset management lifecycle. Best of all, Transparent Earth streamlines operations and provides transparency and geospatial intelligence throughout the enterprise without the need for investment in hardware and support infrastructure.
Transparent Earth is a fully integrated enterprise asset management system designed to enhance client’s current operations and asset management business practices. By combining Transparent Earth cloud, patented precision integration and geospatial intelligence with client’s legacy systems, Transparent Earth addresses the fragmented and disconnected business practices that today are plaguing industry.
Transparent Earth is both simple and intuitive for all users. If you are familiar with using popular applications like sharing with friends on Facebook, searching for information or locations using Google and managing your data with Microsoft products, then you will easily navigate Transparent Earth. Where other asset management systems can take years to learn how to operate, Transparent Earth is so simple and intuitive, users of all levels can be up and operating in a matter of hours. Transparent Earth is designed to empower users with a wealth of information with just the click of a button from any device.
Transparent Earth is designed to seamlessly operate with mobile devices and provide real-time connectivity and visualization of asset management data from enterprise systems, third party systems and Internet of Things (IoT). Transparent Earth enables field workers to access and visualize critical asset information in real-time and make more informed and confident decisions as well as confirm the integrity of the data and positional accuracy of the asset. This functionality can ensure that new data being captured is properly measured and quantified and that it meets both project and regulatory requirements.
Project Tracking consists of estimating, data collection, progress reporting, and closeout. Estimating function provides the ability for a parametric estimate to be developed to track actual progress against a budget. To affect this, there are data collection functions including time entry and completion quantities. Progress reporting is displayed visually on the map or in tabular format as required. Document management is also fully supported including files, photos and comments to assure that all required regulators are captured as part of the project records.
Document Manager provides the ability to store documents into a predefined directory architecture by project. Files can be created and managed from both the desktop and mobile device. Documents can be geospatially associated to any point, line or polygon. Document templates are readily available to project personnel to ensure quality and standardization when required.
Materials functionality provides the ability to record the receipt of major materials in the field, complete with all mandatory information to assure that materials are tracked and installed in the correct location. For example; as it pertains to a pipeline project, this means the ability for capturing physical and material attributes as it is unloaded from the rail-car or transport truck and the correct piping materials such as heavy wall piping and factory bends are delivered to the specific location where they are to be installed.
Inspections functionality includes the ability to complete and submit electronic inspection reports and track the progress of all major activities against the project plan and schedule in real-time. Inspections also supports photographic documentation and contains a dedicated electronic project document repository. Inspections are supported by dynamic forms that allow an inspector to easily create, manage and submit real-time inspection reports. Reports are interactive and derive values from previous reports to ensure data integrity and make data capture easier for an inspector.
Cable & Pipe Locating
Cable & Pipe Locating functions enables locate technicians to capture the precise location of buried assets in real-time. When the locate technician records the location of the asset, the mobile application records the cable and pipe locate device’s manufacturer and serial number, frequency, current, and depth reading, the GPS receiver manufacturer and serial number, and the geospatial data including the precise position and the number of satellites in view. The technician then documents the locate using a form that is auto-populated with critical information from the One Call ticket’s data. The locate form contains functions to embed photographs and electronic locate sketches in order to create a permanent irrefutable record of the locate mark-outs.
Operations & Maintenance
Maintenance & Repair Reports
Maintenance & Repair Reports provide a consistent framework for capturing routine maintenance work, equipment inspections and repairs using an electronic form to ensure completeness and accuracy. Maintenance reports are easily accessible using icons that are displayed visually on the map, or displayed and accessed via the dashboard for reporting in a tabular format. Document management is fully supported to assure that documentation required by regulators is captured as part of the maintenance records.
Public Awareness supports outreach programs intended to remind stakeholders that reside in the vicinity of an asset of the nature of the buried assets, risks, and the associated responsibilities of living in its proximity. The system supports the assignment of stakeholders to internal personnel or third party Land Agents and provides reporting and tracking functions monitor their progress in executing the program using tabular reports and real-time visual progress on the map. To simplify business practices and work flow, electronic forms are provided that automatically populate based on the parcel and stakeholder information already on hand. Upon completion of the form the database is updated in real-time. The Public Awareness functions support the creation and generation of line lists, mailing lists, queries, reports and auto-notifications.
Landowner Consultation provides assignment of parcels to individual Land Agents. The Land Agent is able to schedule consultations with the landowner or stakeholder, create electronic record of contact forms to document the consultation, and complete any legal documents required to acquire easements, gain access or receive releases.
Federal and State Regulations
Federal and state regulations provide strict guidelines for companies and agencies to develop, maintain and continuously improve both the integrity management and damage prevention practices to protect all stakeholders including, the workers, the public and the environment. Operations & Maintenance Module includes functions that support both the integrity management and damage prevention practices including One Call ticket management, PIM, Cable & Pipe Locating and Public Awareness Programs.
ClickToDig™ is designed to manage the electronic transmission of One Call ticket data and documents concerning buried assets leveraging Transparent Earth. ClickToDig functions include One Call ticket mapping & display of incoming locate requests from the One Call Notification Centers and automatically mapping and displaying the ticket polygon area and associated metadata in real-time. The display and associated information is available to view on both desktop and mobile devices. When each ticket expires, it is automatically archived and removed from the active map display.
