Challenges
  • Backlogs in GIS and as-built map updates
  • Lack of access to accurate asset location and data in the field
  • Inefficient processes for locating hard to find assets
  • Insufficient asset condition or maintenance record due to lack of asset inventory
  • Regulatory compliance on proper asset documentation
Solution

Trimble Unity software subscription offers the Wastewater Mapper app, which leverages Trimble’s high accuracy GNSS receivers and Esri’s mapping technology to provide a robust data collection solution to improve the quality and accuracy of your GIS data. It allows utility operators using Trimble Unity web to plan, manage and dispatch data collection jobs. It also allows field users using Trimble Unity mobile to perform work, gather authoritative asset information, record accurate 3D GPS positions and capture photos.

Standard forms based on the Esri’s Local Government Information Model (LGIM) are pre-configured to collect field data for wastewater assets including manholes, gravity mains, pressurized mains, lift stations, pumps, etc.
