  10. 10. Rapid Solution Development
  11. 11. What we did !  Confirmed the FME Server setup requirements and use in this way – many thanks Craig Vernon for his support !  Stood up on a secure portal all the OS mapping – used under licence from the energy company to ensure we stuck to the data licence requirements !  Created a simple portal using Open Layers for access, printing of mapping , pdf creation and pole identification !  Portal was designed for use on mobile phone !  And all within 2 -3 weeks, very fast!
  12. 12. Aim was to build a portal
  13. 13. Project Activities and facts !  Dealing with a ramp up of 5 – 30 ground surveyors so at anyone time use of the system could vary !  Over the 6 month project 5,000 maps were printed for administration !  The portal was accessed over 40,000 times during the project !  When the portal was temporarily taken down the first call was apx. 8 minutes after this occurred! !  60,000 wood poles were duly inspected and reports submitted in a timely and efficient manner

  20. 20. Adaptations being considered !  Attached to database output (condition assessment inputs or outputs) !  Attach a billing system to automatically generate invoice once completed area surveyed !  Route planning to improve inspection programme in future
  21. 21. Singing in the rain.. Maybe not !  Having a cloud is brilliant !  Having a flexible approach to FME Server is brilliant !  Walking around in cow fields and tapping wood poles in pouring rain , well perhaps not so brilliant but if we can speed it up at least the inspectors will have a chance to be drier for longer
