A new app is providing water districts and municipalities with the ability to put their Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data to work in innovative ways. The app allows field crews to access and interact with an information library and aerial maps, creating and integrating site-specific information - all with or without internet connectivity.
Maps, schematics, renderings, reports, service history, and more can be tied to any location, which enables supervisors to make a decision while away or on-site. For example, with the app data, companies can determine which valves need to be closed for a leak repair on a water main.
The iPad camera feature also allows users to capture still and video images and link them to a note on a repair or property parcel allowing for real-time data updates.
The end goal is to help users increase productivity, reduce costs, and make better decisions by leveraging their GIS data more effectively
