/// Mapping a Rural Water System with High Accuracy

Rockett SUD

Rockett Special Utility District is a small water utility located near Dallas, Texas. They needed to improve fieldwork efficiency as service demand grew. By implementing an Arrow Gold RTK GNSS base/rover config with ArcGIS Collector on iPads, they  improved mobile GIS data collection accuracy. Fieldworkers no longer make several calls per day to locate assets, and office staff are free to perform their primary work.  Read their story >
