/// Vermont Gas Systems Doubles Efficiency with Arrow Golds and iPads
“We would spend eight or nine months installing services and mains with only a vague idea of what happened and when. Then we’d spend the winter figuring out what we did and making record of it.” — James Cunningham, GIS Administrator
After replacing paper workflows and institutional knowledge with modern mapping hardware and software, Vermont Gas Systems doubled their mobile efficiency.
You no longer need X-ray vision to “see” underground assets. Tomorrow, you’re invited to learn how Oakland County, Michigan, mapped their buried utilities with centimeter accuracy — in real time— directly into their web GIS. Speakers from Eos, Esri, OHM Advisors, and Oakland County will be available for Q&A after the presentation.
