This article was written regarding work conducted under legacy company names: Continental Mapping, GISinc, or TSG Solutions. These three companies merged in January 2021 to form a new geospatial leader [Axim Geospatial].
NIRIS is the Navy's Environmental Restoration program - they keep track of sample locations, wells, any sort of environmental restoration data. The NAVFAC GES program went through the last couple of years upgrading its data model from SDFIE 2.6 to SDFIE 3.01. There was a Navy adaptation of that data model and we supported them through the migration by taking the data they migrated and preparing it to be a part of an enterprise GIS for NAVFAC. Now that NAVFAC is in the new data model, NIRIS also wants to get their data migrated to it. [Axim Geospatial] did not do the actual migration for them - we provided the model. In addition to the upgrade, they also wanted to be more in line with the rest of NAVFAC as far as enterprise GIS and so they wanted to be able to start editing in SDE, wanting their architecture to be set up just like NAVFAC. So we created schemas in the same repository that all the NAVFAC GeoReadiness Centers (GRCs) edit and publish their data in. NIRIS now has all their own schemas now set up pretty much the same way.
