AbstractThis paper describes an approach for the development of centralized enterprise-wide shared data repositories to integrate asset spatial and non-spatial data. The data repository would serve as a medium for sharing and integrating data across all municipal departments and software systems. An implementation case study is also presented. The case study demonstrates the implementation of a centralized asset data repository in the City of Regina, using Oracle DBMS and ESRI's ArcSDE gateway. The process of schema mapping and data conversion, and the transition from using paper records, to CAD maps, to departmental GIS, and finally to multi-user enterprise GIS-based asset data repository is described.
