Mobile Data Collection

Transform your workflow from paper to digital.

Complete solution for field data collection

New feature allows you to collect points, lines and polygons with a single app.

Carry out your entire project from start to finish and report to stakeholders using one solution, without worrying about piles of paperwork.

Real time data collection, visualization and monitoring.

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.

Fast and easy deploy

Most of our users set-up their surveys and train the staff in less than a day.
Simply share your form to deploy projects to teams.

EXTEND to other GIS Cloud apps to do more with data

Once you collected the data, you need to make analysis of the project, decide on further actions or share with others and calculate budgets.
You can do everything you need using GIS Cloud platform

Map Editor

Open you project in Map Editor to style and classify data for easy analysis of the collected data, in real time.

Add collaborators to help you with data editing, assign them different permissions to control access.

Overlay with many layers of data for comprehensive analysis and overview.

Map Viewer

Stakeholders can access your project privately through Map Viewer.

It is a simple tool for project overview, or to track the job process and make decisions.

Data can be accessed online or offline once the map is stored on the device.

Map Portal

To share data and maps with the public, your project can be made into a branded Map Portal in less than 30 minutes.

This allows your community or organization  to see which projects are underway, which are planed or completed, and to assess results.

"Mobile Data Collection has changed my entire work process. The ease of use, and the power of real time results, even off the cell or internet networks, is so powerful. The ROI an organization receives from this type of technology more than pays for itself.”
