For Immediate Release: March 15, 2009The Cucamonga Valley Water District Implements Dig-Smart Enterprise™ & infraMap™ for Underground Ticket Management
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA: With countless electronic DigAlert tickets arriving each day, CVWD staff needed a solution to streamline the analytical aspects of staking and marking. Previously, the CVWD had an electronic and automated process of getting DigAlert tickets through the use of Blackberry™ devices. However, an organizational objective to integrate ticket management and GIS was not being achieved with the current model. The lack of GIS integration meant that the amount of time needed to analyze each ticket was greater than it should be. If each ticket was automatically mapped inside the CVWD geodatabase, routing could be streamlined and site visits determined at a much faster pace. Couple this workflow dilemma with the fact that CVWD was already utilizing the industry-leading mobile GIS solution, infraMap by iWater, Inc of Irvine, CA, a robust and off-the-shelf solution was needed to complete the process.
