ABSTRACT: VHB was hired by The City of Boston to build an inventory of the shadow conduit and dark fiber resources at the City’s disposal, included Boston Transportation Department collected assets that exist in the City of Boston. To integrate seamlessly with the City’s existing infrastructure, ESRI’s ArcGIS Platform was used throughout the development, creation and presentation of the product. Making the data available about the fiber assets will foster the first use and development of the assets that have been installed since 1998 for the City of Boston. The project included:• Retrieving 20+ year old source materials required to create the inventory;• Building a flexible data model in ArcGIS Desktop to support the characteristics that need to be collected;• Creating an inventory from documents provided by the city; and,• Developing an ArcGIS Online application for retrieval and display of the collected data.The presentation will describe the project, discuss the benefits and advantages of the chosen approach and demonstrate the end product.
