Increasing Efficiency on Site: Bespoke App for Recording Underground Data
In our drive to go paperless, LandScope have developed a bespoke app to record manhole and inspection chamber information whilst on site.
This app based solution for recording data offers many benefits both in-house and to our clients.
Data is entered into the app, or Electronic Underground Feature Record (EUFR), and uploaded real-time to the central GIS database with its georeferenced location recorded. Legacy data can be easily revisited when future works are planned and with both standard and 360-degree images stored within the EUFR, the need to re-lift or re-survey manholes in the future is significantly reduced.
Real-time access enables the field teams to review data from adjacent areas, complete a gap analysis and plan outstanding work in advance. Auto reporting and GIS exports also mitigates much of the costly office-based processing tasks.
The Electronic Underground Feature Record captures a wealth of information including service type, pipe depth, size and material as well as connectivity information, helping to establish underground networks. This data can be delivered to our client as a PDF or digital form.
The image below shows a sample data set delivered within Google Earth; clicking on the asset reveals the data associated with the manhole or inspection chamber and from here you can access any associated imagery.
