Robert Mankowski, Bentley director, Geospatial Product Management, said, “The release of Bentley Gas V8 XM further extends Bentley’s commitment to advancing GIS for infrastructure. It delivers spatial data seamlessly and transparently to gas utility engineering teams when they need it, increasing organizational efficiency, decreasing errors, and improving data quality.
“Take, for example, the software’s advanced network tracing and leak analysis capabilities. With Bentley Gas V8 XM, reported leaks are quickly correlated to network infrastructure, speeding repair and replacement activities, limiting service interruptions, and increasing profitability.”
Bentley Gas V8 XM Edition is delivered with a prebuilt data model that empowers users to completely customize and extend its functionality as required through easy-to-use administration tools. The data model is supported by inference-driven connectivity that automatically establishes network relationships as the user lays out new facilities. The data model supports comprehensive and customizable attribute sets for classes of network objects, and the logical connectivity model is persisted in DGNs or relational databases, including Oracle® Spatial.
Added Mankowski, “As powerful as Bentley Gas V8 XM is, municipalities and private owner-operators of gas utilities will have even more to look forward to in the months following its initial release. The software soon will be integrated with the forthcoming Bentley Expert Designer Gas to deliver on-the-fly design cost estimation and design-cost comparison, further enhancing organizational efficiencies.”
