Authors: John Winston, Mallory Weakland, Michele DeCoskey, Jason Cowell
Collecting and keeping up-to-date GIS data is essential for keeping business processes operating at peak performance. Recent advances in software and hardware have enabled American Water to collect and record data more quickly and easily than before. We will show how Collector, paired with GPS equipment, has enabled American Water to collect and view GPS-based digital as-builts in real time. We will discuss challenges overcome as well as the benefits of using Collector-based digital as-builts.
