Railways Schematics Web Applications and API

Roles: Documentation, Programmer, Systems Architect

Employer: Capgemini

From: 2014 to 2015


Description :

The project started in 2013 as a proof of concept in order to implement a railway web-schematic application based on ArcGIS Server Schematics extension carried out in 2011. The project production began in 2014, providing Railway schematics web API at national scale. I joined the project team during the start-up phase as an Esri/ArcGIS expert. My initial involvement was to implement ArcGIS Schematics data model to an Oracle Spatial database, and to provide front-end programmers with schematics web-services published on ArcGIS Server. This proof of concept provided valuable knowledge to implement schematics concepts at national scale.

Achievements :

  • Raising my expertise in implementing ArcGIS Schematics datamodel
  • Implementing GIS Cloud Architecture
  • Providing get-arounds to geometrical incompatibility that occurs when implementing railway linear referencing system on diagrams subject to distorted proportionality
  • Presenting this project at the Esri Dev Summit in California USA in 2013

Technical environment :

  • Amazon AWS
  • ArcGIS Server
  • HTML5 - JavaScript
  • Java
  • Jenkins
  • Oracle Spatial
  • Python
