    ​Hi Mates

    I am interested in what other Local Governments are doing in the ADAC space in relation to developments reaching the On Maintenance acceptance stage.

    Are Council's still requesting paper marked up plans.

    How are Council's checking the following in relation to ADAC XML files;

    (a) How do council's confirm the ADAC version used matches the Schema version stipulated?

    (b) How does council check the specifications comply with local regulations? e.g. Sewer line minimum grade

    (c) How does council check the final As Con XML matches the approved For Construction Plans plus approved alterations?

    Thank you in advance.

    ​Hi Bruce

    In realtion to Logan's Water Business, we no longer require printed Plans however we do require Non redlined AsCon DWG's and an ADAC compliant .XML which is generated from the same drawing package as for the .dwg eg 12d.

    (A) Our .xml ADAC files are validated by scripts developped in our spatial systems
    (B) We are capable of runing a script to qualify the "z" against a specified criteria but we don't at this stage. We do however rely on the signing RPEQ and Registed Surveyor. There are a number of clever ways to obtain exact spatial and atribute data using overlaping photography+LiDAR which I am starting to explore. The process will need to be simple and ecconomical for the provider to undertake and equally simple for the receiver to manipulate... completely doable .... a space to watch.
    (C) There are two key requirements as I see it
    • Does the final construct wildly differ from the for construction plans
    • Does it matter - providing the changes are approved and the AsCon information is acurate..
    At the end of the day, I want to know what it actually is that is in the ground and does it comply.
    NB there are processes and scripts that can "reverse" engineer the .xml information to produce a .dwg, which can then be manually or, by levels of automation, compared to the approved plans.
    A further discussion.

    Nice to hear from feel free to contact me if you want to bat a few thoughts around.

    Cheers for now
