Case Studies – ESRI
Refractions converted a legacy habitat modelling system based on ArcView 3.X to ArcGIS 9.2, and automated the workflow to provide faster turnaround time for model runs.
Refractions developed an ArcMap extension to automate the calculation of standard reports joining a massive shape-file archive with a large Oracle database.
The Regional District was rolling out a new 911 dispatch system, and knew that keeping rural route address points accurate and up-to-date would involve collaboration with far-flung municipalities. Refractions built a web-based collaboration system using standard technology ready to integrate with the District ArcSDE system.
The US Army Corps of Engineers set up Mapserver to provide online viewing of their various inventories in Oracle Spatial. In order to provide access to an additional internal community of users with ArcMap8, they needed to make the data available using an ArcIMS internet service. Rather than re-configure their server back-end to support ArcIMS, they engaged Refractions to enhance the IMSEMU, a package the provides ArcIMS-compatible ArcXML services using the Mapserver rendering engine.
Refractions built a web-based utility for searching boundaries over the web, using Oracle, ArcIMS, and IMF to provide an interactive map of the data.
The British Columbia Ministry of Health was charged with creating an access program to cover costs of medically necessary travel. But how much would it cost? Who was traveling for treatment? Where were they traveling to and from? Refractions analyzed 50 million records from the medical insurance database and delivered a report on travel patterns and interactive map application for exploring the data.
Geographic Data BC needed a system to quality control planimetric mapping submissions from third parties. Refractions built a system that used FME to run quality operations and ArcView 3.X to provide a user interface for semi-automated manual operations.
