How to Collect The Best GPS Data Under Tree Canopy

Jon Aschenbach will describe how ArcPad can be used with both US and Russian (GLONASS) satellites to collect the best possible GPS data under tree canopy. He will show how to set up ArcPad for improved GPS accuracy, how to incorporate laser rangefinders for GPS offsets, and proper field procedures for best accuracy. He will also review the use of imagery in the daily use of ArcPad. His conclusion will look at the future of GPS and the "Game Changing" options soon to be available to all GPS users.

Culvert Inventory Effort

ODOT lacked current location and condition information on thousands of culverts around the state and thus embarked on a statewide effort to update this inventory. Key parts of the effort has been an initial triage with follow-up condition assessments using two related applications for mobile GPS equipment. This coordinated effort ensured that data could be quickly and appropriately collected according to standards, attributes and definitions that would allow a statewide dataset to be updated for decision making for repair and replacement. This has been a multi-step effort to evolve a process into compliance with an ODOT enterprise standard. We have taken a holistic approach to development of this GPS solution as part of an effort to ensure that the data was returned to the source system.

FACS-STIP Tool

The goal of the FACS-STIP (Features, Attributes and Conditions - Statewide Transportation Improvement Program) Tool is to improve statewide data accessibility and quality. The tool allows users to access and communicate asset information with one easy-to-use application. The tool is web-based and accessible from any computer with web access. Components Map Tool: Web-based version of the desktop STIP Scoping Tool. ArcGIS Server software is used to create user determined geo-spatial maps with different base layers. It provides the ability to select assets and get attribute information, as well as contains print functionality. Data To Go: Allows users to retrieve asset information for an area of interest whether a specific highway point or a highway segment. Users can then generate a report to be exported as an Excel worksheet. Recently updates included: addition of layers; modifications to base maps; web reports and excel spreadsheets; and, fixes to the identify tool.
