MGISS Equips Critical Infrastructure Workers During COVID-19
May 15, 2020 -- Mobile GIS Services (MGISS) is supporting asset owners and contractors who maintain critical infrastructure during the Coronavirus lockdown with mobile solutions that help improve field operations with intelligence on hidden assets.
Engineers responding to defects on the highway or problems in the supply of water, electricity and gas are continuing to improve their ability to locate and resolve defects and interruptions to supply quickly and efficiently using tools such as the Topografi web app. Allowing for the simple, real-time capture and display of high-accuracy, 3D data compliant with local grids and models, Topografi is an end to end platform for capturing buried asset data and making it accessible and usable in the field.
Whilst many workers are being asked to stay at home, those with frontline roles in the water, gas and electricity sectors those that are responsible for the highways network are defined as critical workers. Technologies such as satellite positioning systems and rugged field capture devices can ensure geographically accurate data can be captured efficiently, with confidence and in accordance with social distancing rules.
When combined with spatial data management solutions from MGISS, such as the Topografi app, these technologies can ensure up to date information about essential infrastructure is available where and when it is needed to...
