Route Deliverables Page

The Route Deliverables page serves are a control center for all project deliverables, site views, and cost estimation reports (for electric transmission routing).

The Deliverables Page serves many purposes which is why we often refer to it as the control center.  This is where you will kick-off the routing and reporting process for system generated routes and the reporting process for uploaded routes. You can also publish the route project to a Site View allowing non-Route users the opportunity to review and contribute to the routing results. Other project deliverables are generated here; including exports of the Pivvot Data and project results. Lastly, the Deliverables is used to review and analyze system generated routes.  

The following topics will be discussed in this article:



1. Generate Routes 


Routes must first be Generated in order to view the created routes, download reports, and download project data. 

In order to format reports and project data appropriately, all routes including Uploaded Routes will need to be Generated.

To Generate Routes:

  1. Select the checkboxes by the route(s) you wish to generate.
  2. Select Generate.

Each route is color-coded to provide status updates throughout the generation process:

  • Grey (shown) indicates routes have not been generated
  • Orange indicates routes are currently being generated
  • Green indicates route generation is complete

Note: If any edits are made - spatial edits, edits to a PLAE or edits to Objectives - the associated route(s) must be re-generated.

2. Generate Site View 


Site View is a web map that will display the project routes, along with underlying data within the project AOI. Site Views are a good way to review and compare system generated and uploaded routes in a simple, familiar, and fast web map.  You can add additional users to the site view to create a collaborative environment where others can participate in reviewing routes.

To create a Site View

  1. Toggle the Create Site View icon.
  2. In the Share With... box, type the name of users you wish to provide access to the site view.
  3. Select Save 

To view the Site View, go to the Map. Use the dropdown menu to choose the project Site View.  Additional details can be found at: Using the Map.

3. Download Project Data 

Users can download and view project data to understand spatial relationships and to see the data that drives the routing process.

Project data is available for download: 

  • Project.gdb - Esri file geodatabase containing the project's Routes, Mileposts, AOI, Objectives, and any Exclusion Areas layers.
  • Pivvot.gdb - Esri file geodatabase containing the Pivvot data layers that occur in the project's AOI.  These are the layers used to drive the routing process. These layers may include, but not limited to Critical Habitat, NWI Wetlands, 100-year Flood Plain, and Structures & Infrastructure.

Note: To include the Pivvot Data you must check the Include Archive Data option. 

Note: Due to licensing restrictions the Energy Infrastructure (i.e. powerlines, substations, existing pipelines) data is not included in the Pivvot Data download.  Please contact Pivvot Support to discuss options. 

  • [ProjectName].kmz - Google KMZ containing the project's Routes and Mileposts
  • Elevation.gdb - A raster surface of elevation values for the project AOI.

To Generate and Download project data:

  1. Select Generate to compile the project data.
  2. Click on each item to download.

Each file geodatabase is color-coded to provide status updates throughout the generation process:

  • Grey (shown) indicates the project data has not been generated
  • Orange indicates the project data is currently being generated
  • Green indicates the project data has been generated

Note: If any changes have occurred to the Routes, Objectives, or Exclusion Areas, the project data must be re-generated.

Generating Cost Estimates and Downloading Cost Deliverables

  1. If the Route project has been selected to be an Electric Transmission Route, you will have the option to generate an estimated cost for each route alternative. Check the boxes next to each route where a cost is needed, then select “Cost.”

  2. By viewing the Route Status you can see generated cost estimates for each route alternative where this has been performed.
    ETR 8
  3. Once the cost estimates are generated, you can view them on the Reports menu by selecting the “Route Cost Estimation” report in the list of Summary Reports.
    ETR 9
  4. The Cost Estimation Report will give the total estimated cost for each route alternative along with a breakdown of each cost item.

  5. This report can be exported to an Excel file by selecting the Export button.
