Mobile data collection and gas utility inspection using ArcPad.
Track: Pipeline and Gas Utilities
Authors: Jeremy Williams, Matthew Woloschek
The City of Clearwater’s Gas Department was replacing manual read meters with automated meters. With the help of GIS, we developed a mobile data collection method, utilizing ArcPad 10.2, Python, and ArcGIS Server feature services. Now an inspection crew and installation crew can work in tandem so that this meter replacement can be kept in house, avoiding outsourcing, to insure the highest accuracy and quality as well as lowering the overall project costs.
