Florida Power & Light – Electrical Facilities Conversion, Miami (Dade County)
FPL's content, or factual, error rate for the electrical facility files was 0.1 percent. Positional error for field located facilities was not to exceed 5 feet at a 90% confidence level. Underhill, along with FDSI, met or exceeded these specifications in all deliveries.
- provided field data migration, text merging and customized data checking routines and procedures to ensure network connectivity,
- developed field data collection methodology specific to FPL's electrical data specifications,
- performed the electrical data conversion, and
- provided custom graphic data translation from ARC/INFO to IBM GFIS.
Underhill's translation software was used to convert FPL's land base (supplied by another conversion vendor in ESRI ASCII format) to IBM IFF. This data was used to then provide geographic referencing for converting electrical facilities. The Underhill software worked quickly and ran on a standard 640K microcomputer. The translator, written in ‘C’, produced attribute and graphic IFF records for topographical and cadastral features, building symbols and outlines, map borders and power poles.
