Mapping grade GPS data collection is costly and time consuming, often requiring specialized equipment. With current smartphone technology, the restraints of data collection can be minimized. Utilizing a platform agnostic HTML5 page, any mobile user can quickly collect, attribute, and upload data to our server. The data passes through ArcPy spatial analysis and attribute QAQC scripts to validate its integrity. This simplifies TxDOT's data collection and can be expanded to the general public.
