Most people take infrastructure for granted, until something goes wrong. When repairs need to be made, access to accurate data is essential if the problem is to be resolved in a timely manner. Traditionally, utilities use the original construction plans as their system of record. Relying on paper plans for asset management is risky. Paper plans can be misplaced or out-of-date – not matching what is in the field. This can cause serious problems during an emergency.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) offer an accurate, accessible database for both emergency response and long-range planning. R.G. Miller provides real-world infrastructure mapping for municipal utility districts, water districts and cities. We create asset management solutions built on the Esri platform – the world leader in mapping and spatial analytics software – deploying Esri’s suite of mobile maps and apps to provide a comprehensive system of engagement.
