IT & GIS Collaboration: Improving Productivity for GIS Staff

We approached our GIS implementation using standard IT principles and practices with a GIS-centric methodology: a self-service environment allowing the GIS staff to manage their own business processes. • Disconnected editing: crews can check-in/out data any time from any location with access to our network, a queue ensures serial processing of all requests, automated conflict detection for replicas. • Integrated disconnected editing with office editing: AssetIDs are validated and assigned, a full compress executes nightly. • Field-collected information is uploaded and processed nightly: flushing calculations, soil sample measurements, redlines, and GPS points. • Quality control: full data profile and %error of every field for every object in the production geodatabase, schema validation (UML to geodatabase) • Dashboards and Reports: all quality control results, nightly processing errors, conflict errors are presented to the GIS staff for quick and easy correction, forms for GIS staff to manage and support field crew laptops and data collection efforts
