ArcGIS Collector App for Stormwater Inspections

Dan Allen, GISP MRB Group

MRB Group assisted the Town of Ontario (Wayne County, NY) with the completion of its 2013 Stormwater Phase II inspections. Instead of using paper forms, the Town leveraged its investment in GIS outfall mapping and combined it with ArcGIS Online, and the ESRI Collector App to complete the inspections digitally with smartphone devices. Digital photos of every outfall were also taken with the Collector App and automatically attached to the inspection points. The reporting functions of ArcGIS 10.1 desktop software was then used to generate an automatic paper report for every inspection with the attached photo displayed.

This presentation will cover a technical overview of the process used, in addition to considerations for planning future projects of this type.
