Smart water utilities - more at http://www.ohm-advisors.com - Water, stormwater and wastewater professionals from across the country talked about how to make water utilities “smarter” at the Esri Water Conference, February 2015 in Portland, Oregon. And by “smarter,” we mean more efficient. Two of of OHM Advisor's field collection experts, Mike Cousins, GISP and Kyle Curie, are a big part of this dialog. Using OHM Advisor's experience with Collector for ArcGIS for manhole assessments, they demonstrated how this tablet-based, data collection technology is boosting efficiencies, cutting costs and saving paper.

Gone are the days of hand written tabulation and data entry back at the office. Ugh. We’ve aged just thinking about it! With real-time input on a geodatabase tablet in the field, this process has been cut in half. In the end, it’s a win for our clients and the environment. No wonder they’re so eager to share.

Using tablet-based, data collection technology for a variety of infrastructure asset management needs is boosting efficiencies, cutting costs and saving paper. Architecture, engineering and planning firm OHM Advisors presents examples of use of Collector for Arc GIS Sample for:

•Manhole inventories
•Sign inventories
•Pipeline assessments
•And more…

Use of this technology is benefitting both communities and the environment.
