New iPad App Puts GIS Data to Work in the Field for Water Agencies

GeoViewer Mobile Streamlines Workflow and Enhances GIS Interactivity

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A new app available in the Apple Store is providing water districts and municipalities a powerful new tool that puts their Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data to work in innovative ways. Nobel Systems' GeoViewer Mobile app allows field crews to access and interact with a virtual library of information and aerial maps, creating and integrating site-specific information at the touch of finger. And they can do it all with or without internet connectivity.

The GeoViewer Mobile app – currently being rolled out on iPads in water agencies and cities across the country – is just one component of Nobel Systems' integrated workflow solution. The goal: help users increase productivity, reduce costs, and make better decisions by leveraging their GIS data more effectively.

"Water districts have this tremendously valuable data in their GIS systems," said Ken Deck, general manager of Rowland Water District. "The problem is that it often exists in a vacuum. Nobel's solution gives us rapid, real time way to access and use our GIS information, whether making strategic decisions at the district office or making repairs out in the field. We signed on because it will save our agency time and money year after year."

When designing the GeoViewer Mobile tool, Nobel focused on human interaction and context, creating a user-friendly product that allows crews with minimal training to interface quickly and easily with complex data.

GeoViewer Mobile is customized to each organization. Maps, schematics, renderings, reports, service history and more can be tied to any location, whether you need to find the right replacement part for a damaged city streetlight, or determine which valves need to be closed for a leak repair on a water main, GeoViewer enables field workers and supervisors to make the right decision right away.

Existing workflow systems can easily be integrated, allowing field crews to receive and modify open work orders. The iPad camera feature allows users to capture still and video images and link them to a note on a repair or property parcel. Voice-to-text capacity makes jotting down background information quick and easy. GeoViewer Mobile integrates seamlessly with Nobel Systems' GeoViewer Online, the tool that makes GIS information accessible to those without specialized training. 

"The GeoViewer solution is about making GIS data easily accessible so that an entire organization can interact with and benefit from it," said Michael Samuel, president of Nobel Systems. "GeoViewer Mobile takes that accessibility a step further, providing our clients with a tool that enables streamlined access to the information they need at the right time to do their jobs better."

GeoViewer Mobile customers receive classroom and one-on-one training for supervisors and field employees, as well as unrivaled customer support. To find out more about GeoViewer Mobile or Nobel Systems, call 909-890-5611 or visit www.nobel-systems.com.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
