Project scope requires Sanborn to attribute the City's existing water and wastewater geodatabase features as well as updating the data from the scanned as-built drawings. Following this update process the true positions of the above ground features are located using GPS survey. During the GPS field inventory specified attributes will be collected. Upon completion of the field survey the features will be adjusted to their accurate geopositional location.
With the information Sanborn provides, the City of Round Rock will have a complete, up-to-date water and wastewater geodatabase solution. The city will then be able to use GIS to develop and support vital operational and business applications as well as to support maintenance, planning, water and waste water management requirements.
Karen Adkins, project manager for the Texas project, remarked, "We're very pleased to be working on this project. Sanborn has successfully provided the city with orthoimagery and update mapping for several years. We look forward to using our skills and technologies in utility mapping to assist the City of Round Rock in enhancing the success of their critical infrastructure."
