Using GNSS Technology to Accurately Bring Field Information Into GIS
Track: Desktop Mapping

Inputting data from the field to GIS presents an interesting challenge. This challenge can be solved by implementing a GNSS locating system into the field data collection and GIS mapping process. A pilot study was completed encompassing ten water main projects in 2014, and the results showed a significant improvement over the traditional sketch and tabular field data. The data provided using this process can improve GIS mapping process efficiency, and the quality of the data in your GIS system.
