Urban Crossroads, Inc. deploys Tadpole Technology's GO! Sync for ArcPad to automate The City of Irvine's tree inspection system.
Urban Crossroads worked with The City of Irvine to design and deliver a centralized geodatabase that consolidates disparate datasets and provides multiple workers with access to real-time information about numerous infrastructure assets. The geographic information system (GIS), built on ESRI's ArcSDE(R)technology, supports the concurrent viewing and editing of data by users across multiple departments, via a customized user-friendly interface. Extending the use of its GIS to support the operational needs of a range of business processes is an important goal for The City of Irvine.
GO! Sync for ArcPad became a necessary requirement when The City of Irvine sought to deploy GIS data in the field on multiple handheld computers. Having developed a custom tree-site inventory application for handheld devices, using ESRI's ArcPad software on Trimble's GeoXT GPS units, Urban Crossroads realized that they needed a reliable and efficient data management tool.
Beth Dennis, Project Manager at Urban Crossroads explains "With this mobile implementation we needed to enhance the system so that users could easily download feature classes for viewing and editing remotely and upload their edited data back to the enterprise. By deploying Tadpole Technology's GO! Sync for ArcPad, we were able to fully automate the data transfer process so that The City workers simply dock their mobile devices to upload their data and receive back relevant updates. The opportunity to realize time-savings by automating this process was a key reason for using Tadpole Technology's GO! Sync for ArcPad "
GO! Sync for ArcPad is a scalable solution that is not limited to any specific application. Combining this flexibility of use with its ability to seamlessly integrate with The City of Irvine's enterprise geodatabase, GO! Sync for ArcPad is positioned to meet The City's future requirements. The City uses the Urban Crossroads' Centralized Database System to manage numerous assets and anticipates using GO! Sync for ArcPad in support of further field work, such as auditing its street lighting assets.
"An important feature of GO! Sync for ArcPad is its support for custom applications, which allows our end users and business partners to use our field-enabling technology within their own tailored solutions" comments Chad Flynn, Mobile Manager for Tadpole Technology's Geospatial Solutions Division. "This recent deployment of GO! Sync for ArcPad by Urban Crossroads not only demonstrates the versatility of the solution but is a perfect example of how our software, combined with ESRI technology, is being used to enable the deployment of mobile enterprise-scale solutions."
