Extract data you need from diagrams – in minutes

DataSeer automatically detects and auto-labels data from piping & instrumentation (P&ID) and other engineering diagrams, lists and reports. Its search function is up to 100 times faster than manual searches. DataSeer enables rapid export of valve, instrument, line number, and table data into easy-to-use, standardized CSV formats. With detection errors of less than 1% and a simple verification interface for users, DataSeer significantly improves quality control and quality assurance for large engineering diagram data extraction needs.

DATASEER IN ACTION

Locate Symbols and Text
DataSeer automatically detects and identifies all instances of relevant symbols and associated text. The time savings accrued by using this tool have been seen from many engineers when searching through scanned paper documents.
Estimating Cost for Fabrication and Production
DataSeer shows a drastic decrease in time spent extracting objects and line numbers by 90%, making a week-long job a matter of a few hours.
Create Line Valves
DataSeer enables easy export of counted symbols and lines into standardized CSV formats.
DataSeer Accelerating Quality
As part of a QA/QC process, line lists, instrument indexes and valve schedules can be quickly extracted from client deliverables for comparison to specifications and other client expectations before issuing the documents.
Dataseer BOM
DataSeer automatically extracts tabular data, such as bills of material, part lists, production reports, data sheets, line designation tables, pile schedules, revision tables and more. DataSeer transforms the content and structure of the tables into editable CSV format.
Converting Legacy Drawings
DataSeer assists in digitizing the engineering design elements on P&IDs, including relevant instruments, valves, and piping. This data can then be used to digitally recreate the drawings.

FAQ




Do I need to install DataSeer?

No. DataSeer runs in a web browser with no installation necessary.

What web browser should I use to run DataSeer?

You must use Google Chrome, preferably the latest version.

What file formats can DataSeer extract data from?

DataSeer can extract data from PDF files.

What document types can DataSeer extract data from?

DataSeer can extract data from piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) and isometric drawings (ISO). In the future, we plan to give users the ability to extract data from other types of documents too.

How many diagrams can I upload per project?

You can upload up to 100 pages of diagrams per project.

Can I search for text on diagrams?

Yes. DataSeer has a powerful text search feature that lets you find text that would be undiscoverable in other applications. To use this feature, simply enter text keywords in the Pattern field during the identification and review process.

Can I export data from DataSeer?

Yes. After you have labeled valves, instruments, and/or line numbers on the diagrams in a project, you can export data for these items into a comma-separated values (CSV) file.

What is the security policy for user data in DataSeer?

DataSeer's security policy is user-centric. DataSeer authenticates each user at login with centralized validation to all information assets against configurable user and system permissions.

DataSeer stores two types of data from diagrams:

  • Structured metadata
  • Document images

Both of which are stored within Arundo’s cloud environment for the life of the project. Stored data and project information can be permanently deleted by the project owner at any time. Access to the stored data is controlled by the project owner within DataSeer, and data access is validated through authentication at each transaction

Can DataSeer handle low-quality P&IDs?

Yes, but the accuracy/output of the models suffers accordingly. DataSeer still provides value, but likely to a lesser degree.

Do the drawings have to be ISA compliant?

No. We have ISA compliant symbols in our default list but you can search for any symbol you want.

Industrial MACHINE LEARNING Case Study: Digitization of Engineering Diagrams

Schematic diagrams are the bread-and-butter of the industrial engineer, and some examples include piping & instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs), process flow diagrams (PFDs) and isometric diagrams. Here we review common pain points that the industrial engineer faces when working with these diagrams and explain what you can do to alleviate some of these burdens.

Table Extraction From Industrial Diagrams and Document Images

Vast amounts of valuable information exist in industrial diagrams and document images which are vital to a number of areas in industrial operations, such as project planning and design. In this area, tabular information typically contains inventory and specification data that must be accurately extracted to ensure on-time project implementation and completion. Traditionally, this information has been captured through time-intensive, error-prone manual methods. Machine learning strategies enable faster, more accurate extraction. This has a wide variety of applications beyond project engineering.
