I would like to know the various methodologies and equipment appropriate for the precise mapping of all electricity consumer meters in each apartment of a city so that they may be placed in a GIS database. If possible, the mapping will be made with a quickbird 60cm imagery as a backdrop so that each house can be seen clearly.
Precise GPS equipment will be needed and maybe even palm top computers with CE Operating system that will easily map these points to be used in a GIS environment later. Accuracy will be vital as we need to distinguish meters located some 10 metres apart in places.
We presently use ArcView 8.1, and would like to be able to manipulate the captured data using this software to create maps or other views of the data.
Rough idea of prices will be good too.
