Farallon Geographics Delivers Mobile Data Collection App On Android Platform Using FME Server

Farallon Geographics has developed mobile data collection application to streamline the development of a comprehensive and accurate storm drain geodatabase and geometric network. This easy-to-use mobile application, capable of real-time integration with GIS services and geodatabases, reduced data collection times by over 50% while simultaneously improving accuracy.

Farallon Geographics has developed and deployed a workflow-driven mobile data collection application to streamline the development of a comprehensive and accurate storm drain geodatabase and geometric network for a Bay Area city. Field crews required a simple, intuitive and efficient solution for collecting detailed storm drain information including high accuracy GPS data and digital photography. Managers in the office wanted to be able to adjust and visually track progress of the data collection in real-time.

The application uses the Open Source Android mobile platform, allowing it to run on a wide range of devices including modern, high performance smartphones (e.g. Droid, Nexus One) as well as rugged enterprise-class mobile computers with high accuracy GPS receivers such as Trimble devices. The application enables real-time updates of data via WiFi or 3G and has built in spatial and attribute validation features to ensure data accuracy.

The mobile data collection application integrates seamlessly with the city's central geodatabase using FME Server from Safe Software. FME Server serves spatial data to field collectors so they can assign attributes to the data with the mobile application. The data is validated and transformed by FME Server and then automatically loaded into the city's ESRI geodatabase. For managers in the office, Farallon developed streaming KML services using FME Server that allow office staff to review field data using Google Earth. This allows managers to track progress, identify errors or inconsistencies, and provide feedback to field crews in real time.

This easy-to-use mobile application, capable of real-time integration with GIS services and geodatabases, reduced data collection times by over 50% while simultaneously improving accuracy. It is easy to use, flexible to deploy and requires minimal training.
