Pipeline Open Data Standards – An Explanation of the Core Module

Anyone who has ever seen the schematic diagram located on the Pipeline Open Data Standards (PODS) website (www.pods.org) is directed to a brightly colored, categorized PDF document. This diagram groups the different parts of the PODS data model into smaller and more detailed sub-modules that focus on a particular use or application related to the geographic data collection of certain functions inside the Oil and Gas industry.  With the release of PODS ESRI Spatial 6.0, the model currently consists of 31 modules designed to capture all aspects of pipeline attributes required to meet regulatory requirements and data standards. After all, this is nothing more than a reporting tool for the end user to gather information. The only required model is the core.
