Geospatial Apps for a Smarter Public Works System
February 25th, 2013 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
Public Works departments manage and keep track of massive amounts of geospatial data. This includes a broad range of information, from digging permits, to inspecting, maintaining and updating a wide variety of assets (fire hydrants, manholes, pipes, street furniture and even buildings themselves).
To effectively manage and leverage this data for smarter decision-making, these organizations require flexible, web-based GIS solutions. Advanced geospatial functionality must be balanced with intuitive applications, enabling both subject matter experts and non-GIS-trained personnel to collaborate on work benefiting the public. Ultimately, these solutions enable departments to configure and deploy easy-to-use, map-based, task-oriented web applications.
GeoMedia Smart Client is the ideal solution for Public Works departments. The solution provides streamlined, customer-specific field inspection and planning workflows that provide asset information update, high-end vector editing tools, and query and analysis. You can also easily add related documents, drawings and photos, as well as review any related information.
GeoMedia Smart Client integrates with other business systems within the enterprise, and a single deployment can be configured for an unlimited number of applications. This profound flexibility makes this the perfect GIS for a smarter organization.
We recently hosted a webinar that showcased how Public Works Departments in Stuttgart Strassenbahn (SSB), Germany and the City of Hamilton in Canada used GeoMedia Smart Client to effectively configure and deploy easy-to-use, map-based, task-oriented web applications.
Intergraph also hosted a separate webinar late last year that showcased how GeoMedia Smart Client can provide a complete workflow that involves issuing permits, as well as managing assets and inspections.
