Pipeline Open Data Standard Association

THE Industry Platform and Community for Efficient Pipeline Data Management.



The Pipeline Open Data Standard (PODS) is a non-profit (501 (c) (6) EIN # 841572421) member-driven organization that provides the widely recognized data model standard adopted by pipeline operators, service providers, vendors, and regulatory agencies for managing spatial data. The PODS Standard is the best starting point for implementing a GIS and data management program due to its effectiveness and scalability.

We are growing and adding more value to our members by building a pipeline community focused on the entire asset lifecycle, adding resources such as training, curated free live data layers, federal and state specific regulatory updates and technical solutions such as the new ESRI UNet (for Utility Network) and the ILI module using PODS 7.0.1.

Get involved by attending a community event or volunteering for a committee! Or sign up for a new workgroup to expand the 7.0.1 model to support the entire asset lifecycle with the Construction Projects Workgroup in conjunction with IPLOCA or create prescribed business processes for the first time in the Regulatory/Integrity Task Workgroup.
