EN Data Solutions, a sector of ENTRUST
Solutions Group, empowers operators to
efficiently slice and dice their pipeline data
stored in complex industry data models.
DynaSeg, EN Data Solutions’ specialized
dynamic segmentation software, makes it easy
to extract the most value for accurate and safe
Popular pipeline data models like the Pipeline
Open Data Standard (PODS™) and Esri® utility
and Pipeline Data Model (UPDM) are optimized
for efficient data storage, not for effective data
usage. Using those standard pipeline data models
for common many functions can require intense
computing power and time-consuming efforts.
This includes common tasks such as extracting
data in risk analysis, preparing U.S. Department
of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous
Material Safety Administration (PHMSA) National
Pipeline Mapping System (NPMS) submissions,
and creating DOT annual reports.
DYNASEG IS TIGHTLY INTEGRATED INTO
THE ESRI® PLATFORM, SUPPORTS ALL
ESRI® VECTOR AND TABULAR DATA
FORMATS AND LIVES IN ARCTOOLBOX:
• No proprietary modification of your data model
• Easy deployment. No complicated installation
• Does not require standing up a server, or
named user licensing
DynaSeg is part of G2-IS’ comprehensive pipeline
integrity management software suite, designed to
help operators manage risk, ensure compliance,
and optimize performance. Software incorporates
advanced dynamic segmentation tools, and
related utilities, within the Esri® geoprocessing
SOFTWARE & TECHNOLOGY:
DynaSeg is explicitly designed to overcome the
limitations of Esri® OOTB dynamic segmentation
tools – in particular, their inability to handle
overlapping linear features in a single-source input
layer. Overlapping linear features within a single
layer or table are common in pipeline data, e.g.
overlapping pressure hydrostatic pressure tests
on a single line over time stored in a PODS™
pressure test table.
DynaSeg deals with overlapping features in a
single input layer by offering a variety of query,
sort, filtering, and data aggregation methods which
can be used to summarize or otherwise resolve
overlapping features in a
DynaSeg is a generic dynamic segmentation
toolkit. It is useful in any processing scenario that
involves intersecting and processing multiple linear
and point event layers within a linear referencing
context. For pipeline operators, these scenarios
• Maximum allowable operating pressure
(MAOP) calculations for gas transmission
• Maximum operating pressure (MOP)
calculations for liquids transmission lines.
• Data processing and conditioning for input into
pipeline risk analysis.
• National Pipeline Mapping System (NPMS)
• DOT annual reporting for gas and liquids
• Texas Railroad Commission T-4 and P-5
submissions. Tax assessments.
• Pipeline database QA/QC.
• Class Location and HCA-MCA analysis (key
DynaSeg functions are embedded in the G2-IS
Gas HCA Tool).
DynaSeg is also designed to address report
automation through scripting and workflow
integration. Each component can be used as a
single tool, or in combination, giving users the
flexibility to create workflows that are simple or
complex, depending on the need. The tools work
collaboratively within geoprocessing models to
automate and document spatial analysis reporting.
