Precision and Productivity for Utilities/Energy Field GPS/GIS Data Collection, Maintenance and Inspections

  1. 1. WE DO IT FOR YOU Precision and productivity for Utilities/Energy Field GPS/GIS Data Collection, Maintenance and Inspections New Trimble GeoExplorer 6000 Series: Feel the difference ESRI EMEA USER CONFERENCE 2011 Fernando Paredes (EPTISA TI)eptisa tecnologías de la información - Septiembre de 2008 Página 1
  2. 2. AGENDA1. Defining GIS data collection efficiency for Utilities industry2. Barriers that challenges an efficient GIS data collection3. Critical requirements for Utilities GPS/GIS data collection4. Trimble GeoExplorer 6000 Series Handheld with ArcPad 10: The final solution5. Conclusions
  3. 3. EXPECTATIONS At the end of this presentation you should: Know a little bit more about GPS Trimble solutions working with ESRI SW Understand why TRIMBLE-ESRI solutions are the state of the art of GPS tech for GIS applications within Utilities Industry Obtain relevant information for taken investment decisions that will make you save time/money And of course have had a good time ☺Soluciones GPS Profesionales Trimble para trabajos forestales
  4. 4. Let´s start with a provoking questionWhat does it mean for you “GIS data collection efficiency”?
  5. 5. For someone living in Madrid … “…means obtaining accurate measurements in urban canyons”
  6. 6. For someone living in Murcia may mean… “Measure fast without sacrifycing accurateness”
  7. 7. And for someone living in Vigo might mean… “… obtaining accurate measurements under dense forest canopy”Novedades de Productos GPS Trimble para Cartografía y SIG
  8. 8. We could reach and agreement Efficient GIS data capture in the field is: Ability to measure GIS data...: ... With the quality and precision required by your company/law ... In any environment you work ... With the minimal effort, time and expense (productivity)
  9. 9. What is the biggest barrier to productive and efficient GIS data collection?
  10. 10. The environment you need to work in … obstructed
  11. 11. Case of Utilities Management is not an exception Data collection and asset management activities for utility organizations includes: Water, wastewater, gas, electric and cable Typical tasks in obstrusted environment include: Outage detection and repair Relocating underground infrastructure Infrastructure inspection and maintenance management
  12. 12. The environment of Utilities in a snapshotNovedades de Productos GPS Trimble para Cartografía y SIG
  13. 13. Utilities companies GPS/GIS field work critical requirements: Precision 10-30cm (width of spade) real time andpostprocess to be able to work with critical infrastructure (pipes), in avariety of urban and rural obstructed environments Optimized for working in outdoor conditions(ruggedness, lightweight, screen size and sunlight readable) Integrated wireless conectivity (differencial corrections,external sensors, internet, etc) Computing power to run complex field applications and to work withlarge datasets Simplicity of usage and workflow integrated: field crewsunfamiliar with professional GPS + SWSo in these less than ideal circumstances do we have to continue sacrifying precision in favor of productivity or viceversa?
  14. 14. Trimble GeoExplorer 6000 Series Handheld: The final solution for precision and productivityfor Utilities/Energy Field GPS/GIS Data Collection
  15. 15. Requirement:10-30cm precision real time andpostprocess in obstructed GNSS environments
  16. 16. High accuracy GNSS receiver and antenna (internal) Decimeter accuracy in your hand Real time and after postprocessing Fast fixes VRS and at longer baselines: up to 250Km Dual frecuency internal GPS receiver/antenna Channels 220 channels GPS L1C/A, L2C, L2E GLONASS* L1C/A, L1P, L2C/A, L2P SBAS WAAS/MSAS/EGNOS GeoXH (10 cm)
  17. 17. Problems for measuring with precision and productivity? • Multipath • Outages •…
  18. 18. Trimble Floodlight Satellite Shadow Reduction TechnologyIn short:More positions and better accuracy in obstructed GNSS conditions Increase satellite availability (GPS-GLONASS) Stabilise acquisition and tracking Advanced tracking algorithms and filters Results: • Reduces the need to use offsets (easier, faster) • Get the job done right first time (that´s money!!)
