Building a County-Wide Road Sign Inventory with ArcPad/Trimble GPS
Track: Public Works
Authors: Richard Hudson
We’re building a road sign inventory for all county-maintained roadways (70,000 signs estimated). With an ArcGIS foundation, field collection is with Trimble Yuma 2 enhanced-accuracy GPS receivers running ArcPad. We collect Supports and Signs, as well as multiple Events (repairs, etc.) and Inspections for each sign, stored in tables bound via multiple relationship classes. Also implementing Portal/Collector for ArcGIS to add Event/Inspection records. Will cover design and collection strategies.
