IMGS GeoDATA 2012 Belfast - Mobile GIS: The smarter way to take advantage of your investment in GIS

  1. 1. Mobile GISThe smarter way to take advantage of your investment in GIS GeoDATA 2012
  2. 2. Agenda• IMGS introduction• Mobile GIS – Why use? – Challenges – Possible Applications• Devices – Types – Disconnected versus Connected – GPS• Examples – Dublin City Council - Road Survey – Waterford City Council - Sustainable Neighbourhood Unit – Denmark - Give a Hint• Q+A GeoDATA 2012
  3. 3. IMGS• We deliver innovative spatial solutions for the desktop, web and mobile based on our partners technology• Designed to meet the challenges of Government, Mapping Agencies and Utility & Communications Customers• Our customers include OSNI (LPS), NIE, BT, OSI, ESB, Eircom and 34 Local Authorities GeoDATA 2012
  4. 4. Why use Mobile GIS?• Local knowledge becoming thing of the past: – Larger work areas – Contract workers – Therefore location information essential• All field workers now have some form of digital device – phone laptop etc. – Need to take advantage of this expensive time• Field capture can increase: – Data Quality e.g. GPS, photographs etc – Productivity – decrease double entry GeoDATA 2012
  5. 5. Mobile GIS Challenges• Many different Mobile GIS applications• Each with unique requirements• Rapidly developing technology• Trade offs – Capabilities – Price – Size – Ruggedness – Weight – Battery Life• One size does not fit all GeoDATA 2012
  6. 6. Mobile GIS Applications• Utilities – Asset Locations – Asset Condition• Local Government – Route Mapping – Incident Capture – Street furniture• Mapping Agencies – Field Survey GeoDATA 2012
  7. 7. Mobile Device – Selection Factors• Screen size• Battery life• Weight• Transport (on foot or in car)• User training (simple or advanced)• Cost• GPS support• Connectivity• Update process (connected, disconnected) GeoDATA 2012
  8. 8. Its all GPS isn’t it?• GNSS – Global navigation satellite system – Provides location and time information anywhere on Earth – Commonly known as GPS which are the USA satellites – But also GLONASS (Russia), Galileo (EU) and Compass (China) GeoDATA 2012
  9. 9. GPS flavours• But not all mobile systems provide the same GPS: – Assisted GPS • Consumer grade GPS • Uses mobile network (towers and WIFI) to quickly get location • 10-20 m accuracy – Basic (Standalone) GPS • Good enough for basic navigation and capture • 1-5 meter accuracy with single frequency (L1) chip • Based on simple Satellite Triangulation GeoDATA 2012
  10. 10. GPS flavours• Differential GPS – Improved accuracy – Requires a stationery receiver (extra hardware) for 2m accuracy – Or use DGNSS service to get < 1m (single GPS frequency – Dual frequency (L1 & L2) provide RTK GNSS for cm accuracy GeoDATA 2012
  11. 11. Connected versus Disconnected GISConnected Mobile GIS – Pros • Server based – no client overhead • Secure – no data on device • Can act as Single device – phone and mobile GIS • Instant data updates – Conns • Requires mobile connection – not always possible in rural areasDisconnected Mobile GIS – Pros • Feature rich, data rich – Conns • Slow updated – how do you update background mapping • Client installation GeoDATA 2012
  12. 12. Dublin City Council Roads Hazard Survey• Dublin City Council required a solution to proactively capture hazard data in the city• Dublin City Council required a full Disconnected GIS solution – Dock and Go support – Once hazards uploaded then actioned in work management system• Dublin City Council required an easy to use configurable form – no coding• Mobile Expansion Pack for GPS integration – not to capture data but to move map as walking GeoDATA 2012
  13. 13. Waterford City Council – Sustainable Neighbourhood Unit• Sustainable Neighbourhood Unit required ability to record environmental incidents• Incidents include Graffiti, Abandoned Vehicles, Fly Tipping, Burst Pipes, Broken Street Light, etc• Waterford required a secure mobile GIS that can instantly over a wireless connection update enterprise systems• Aim of solution: • Reduce delay in responding to incidents • Demonstrate to public that incidents are been resolved in a timely manner GeoDATA 2012
  14. 14. Demonstration GeoDATA 2012
  15. 15. Denmark “Give a Hint”• App that gives citizens a simple tool to send information to the authorities (e.g. pot holes, grafitti, broken sign posts, missing street lights etc.)• Works on both iPhone and Android smartphones• More than 10,000 people have downloaded the app in Denmark• 30 local governments have signed up (nearly 30%)• At one point the app was #1 in iTunes among Utilities apps GeoDATA 2012
  16. 16. Governments can subscribe to services Gold Silver BronzeSimple email service - - +- Category- Comment- GPS Position- Accuracy- Photo- 1 email addressAdvanced email service + + -- Map Link- Nearest Address- 12 email addressesWebservices + - -- WFS- WMS- KML- RSSSMS service + - -Administration web + - - GeoDATA 2012
  17. 17. In Summary• A Mobile GIS can save time and money• But there are a wide range of solutions available• But you need to consider what is important to you and choose the solution that best fits GeoDATA 2012
