Our solution for data collection can be applied in any industry and to any workflow.
In the utility industry, our users perform network and infrastructure planning, vegetation management and inspection of assets, electric power lines and transformers to assess damage and send repair crews, as well as to keep track of repair jobs. They also perform water and sewage pipeline inspection or use data collection for mapping water sources and for monitoring watersheds.
In natural resources and agriculture Mobile Data Collection is used for surveillance, inventory and monitoring of crop fields, cultivated areas and tracking plant health, as well as for management of reforestation projects.
There are also many applications in local government like mapping jurisdiction areas, city and county limits, inventory of public spaces and parks, as well as managing public works and roadworks, mapping road and traffic infrastructure.
Nonprofits use our system to map out vast areas in third world countries with no or low internet connectivity, to assess available water sources and build sustainable water supply systems, map solidarity networks and much more.
