Utility Data Collection is a utility asset management and meter reading app built on top of a powerful GPS/GIS mapping platform. It can help the city or utility company employees efficiently perform a number of different tasks. Use the GPS/GIS data collection functions to record the locations and conditions of existing utility poles, utility meters and other equipments. Use the same functions to map land plots owned by your organization. Attach one or more photos to the surveyed item. Use the import and export function to easily set up meter routes, upload meter database and export meter readings. Use the Meter Reading data input panel to enter the monthly meter readings and any observations or remarks. Use the sample files as templates for customizing your own GPS/GIS utility data collection and meter reading applications.
The powerful GPS GIS mapping and data collection functions can be just as helpful to other professionals in the fields of fish & wildlife, natural resources, land management, oil and gas, archaeology, sales route management, etc.
The intuitive user interface and the detailed built-in help document will enable you to effectively collect GPS/GIS data and increase productivity within a short time.
Please note: Location data depends on the GPS receiver used. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. This app will let you easily toggle the built-in GPS on or off. This app comes with a built-in help file.
