ZENG Wen, FAN Wen you (Faculty of Information Engineering, China University of Geosciences, Wuhan430074, China)
A universal purpose pipeline management development platform is designed based on MAPGIS, a large scale GIS software. This platform has integrated data model and thus possesses a very large capacity for various types of data. With a multi layer architecture, it includes several modules such as network data management network analysis, general pipeline data pool management, special pipeline data pool management, pipeline project management, pipeline utility toolbox, C++ class ActiveX control library of pipeline management, etc. The platform supports both APIs and component interfaces, which brings convenience and flexibility for secondary development. It meets well the needs of developing pipeline management applications. Using the platform, a series of successful pipeline information systems have been developed and adopted,which proves that it has very wide application perspective.
