Collecting History: Utilizing Collector in a Historic Resources Survey
Track: Mobile and Device Apps
Authors: Courtney Spillane
The Houston Planning Department is surveying over 5,000 historic buildings in its 21 historic districts to determine the typical dimensions found within each district. The previous data collection method, using clipboards and digital cameras, was cumbersome, inefficient, and lacked a spatial component. This presentation will show how we utilized Collector to develop a workflow solution that increased efficiency, improved data quality and accessibility, and highlighted GIS.
