Environmental Consultants, Inc. (ECI) contracted with Sidwell to provide a field data collection platform for an electric utility pole inspection project at Liberty Utilities in New Hampshire. Liberty Utilities has traditionally performed their utility pole inspections on paper and wanted to move into a digital mapping environment. Based on the client’s requirements and project scope, Sidwell recommended using Collector for ArcGIS as the field data collection solution and ArcGIS Online for ongoing data maintenance.
Sidwell services for the project included geodatabase design, creating the web services, Collector for ArcGIS configuration, and deployment, as well as end-user and admin training. Sidwell designed the database based on the client’s inspection criteria, published the services using ArcGIS Online, and configured the forms for data collection in Collector and ArcGIS Online.
Environmental Consultants, Inc. purchased five user names and 2,500 credits from Esri. With these ArcGIS Online credentials, the client owns that data moving forward and is able to edit, run analysis, and export to multiple formats using Esri platform tools.
