My company works with LiDAR data for large electrical transmissions systems (thousands of miles in one project). We model the transmission lines and do analysis using CAD and GIS workflows. We break the system into lines or circuits (1-150 miles each) in order to process the data in smaller units. The LiDAR data itself is broken up into blocks (less than 1sq mile). We always struggle with tracking which blocks have been delivered and which lines are ready for the next step in our workflow.
We are less concerned with signaling when a process is complete and more concerned with determining if all of the necessary raw LiDAR data has been delivered from our collection partner. I know there are all sorts of business intelligence software platforms out there for managing workflows and documents and other contents, but I'm curious if anyone knows of an existing platform for managing lots of raw input data related to the workflow.
Has anyone had any experience tracking input data like this? Do you know of any software platforms out there designed for this particular task?
