In just seven days, Indiana American Water's GIS and engineering teams can turn around highly accurate as-builts to its coworkers enterprise-wide. Plus, see how to use Collector for ArcGIS on Android in the Eos November 2017 issue.
Indiana American Water was using a legacy workflow to check in and check out maps to the field spanning 300,000 customers. The workflow took six months at best for as-builting to get updated asset data into the office backend and back out to the field. With Arrow 200, Collector for ArcGIS, and iPad minis, the utility was able to slash as-builting time to just seven days. Asset data in the field is collected to within a centimeter of accuracy — and is reflected instantly to users across the utility via Esri ArcGIS Online.
In this one-hour webinar from Esri and Eos Positioning Systems, you'll see the story of Indiana American Water moving to a modern, web-GIS-based workflow for field data collection. See how the utility made the leap from a time-consuming legacy workflow that included a six-month as-builting delay — to an affordable, intuitive, web-based solution that brought as-builting down to a week. The webinar covers workflows for Collector for ArcGIS, Arrow 200 receivers, and iPad minis.
WaterOne in Kansas was stuck in a legacy technology mess. Their GNSS handhelds required time-consuming, end-of-day manual labor. And worse, the interfaces frustrated staff. The utility decided to swap the old technology in favor of a device-agnostic, web-GIS-first technology kit. By implementing the ArcGIS platform, deploying Arrow 200 GNSS receivers, and moving to a platform-based approach to information collection and sharing, WaterOne created an affordable, high-accuracy location solution that staff enjoyed using. Here's their story.
California State University - Monterey Bay (CSUMB) needed updated as-builts and field asset data. The university needed a solution to record high-accuracy (centimeter) horizontal and vertical (aka elevation) data. Using the Eos Arrow 200, iPads, and Collector for ArcGIS, CSUMB was able to map its most sensitive field assets. Then, the university team used the geoid model and ArcGIS for Desktop to convert its elevation data into usable field data. The asset records will now help the university provide contractors and field surveyors with high-accuracy field data for construction, demolition, and other projects in the future. See how CSUMB deployed the solution.
On December 31st, 2016, just before midnight, a positive leap second was inserted into the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). This leap second added to GLONASS may have introduced disruption at the exact moment. Arrow Series™ receivers affected (e.g., Arrow 200, Arrow Gold) will automatically update a new almanac.
Getting centimeter accuracy on iPad is possible with GNSS! Here’s How More and more people want to use iPads and iPhones for high-accuracy GIS/GNSS data collection. At first, detractors said those devices wouldn’t survive in the field. They’ve been proven wrong. Put them in an inexpensive Otterbox or LifeProof case and they become robust GIS/GNSS
Want centimeter accuracy GNSS on your iPad? In this article from the Eos October 2016 issue, we explore how you can use Arrow to get cm accuracy in even the most remote terrain. Plus, see how a rural water district went high-accuracy.
