GIS and Mapping
Our team relies on the latest technology for creating state-of-the-art maps, planning documents and design tools that rely on GIS and related asset data. Water system features, collection systems, meters, and other critical facilities can be brought into GIS using our specialized GPS data collectors combined with field survey equipment and the latest ESRI tools. Our mapping often forms the foundation of new asset management programs and related capital improvement programs based on related condition assessments and ranking to establish priority projects.
MC Engineering leverages the power of GIS to spatially organize district record drawings. (See below for image.) Our standard procedure includes creating a record-drawing database that can be easily accessed on any smartphone, tablet, or computer. This database consists of clickable polygons that represent the area covered by plans. Each polygon links to scanned record drawing PDFs.
MC Engineering also utilizes GIS to create online asset maps that can be accessed by both field and office staff. MC Engineering has worked directly with water industry software developers at Esri to formulate a standard mapping procedure that is catered directly to small to medium sized utilities. Our common deliverables with online GIS mapping include the following;
· Online asset database that can be accessed and edited on any mobile device.
· Workflow implementation and field staff data collection training.
· Leak detection and repair reporting.
