How we Levaraged our GIS to Improve Data Consistency and Completeness
Track: Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater
Authors: Madhukar Mohan, Greg Snelling
A large waste/storm water utility used GIS to model its collection system infrastructure and found it could then implement logic and consistency checks to leverage data known about the system to reduce gaps and inconsistencies in data not known, typically associated with much older assets. It also enabled widespread presentation of asset data in simple, usable ways to employees, encouraging corrective feedback from disparate sources in a virtuous loop that lets it continuously improve its GIS.
