Water masters are overworked and under-appreciated. Having a geographic information system (GIS) of your delivery system helps ensure sustainability of the system and resiliency of your organization in the event of employee attrition.
We can use UAV/Drone mapping techniques to capture high resolution imagery of pipes and other assets before they are buried for documentation, compliance, and inspection purposes.
For small communities, we capture GPS location and attributes (diameter, condition, etc) for water system assets including hydrants, valves, and wells.
We can also use UAV/Drone mapping techniques to capture high resolution imagery of pipes and other assets before they are buried for documentation, compliance, and inspections.
We’ve designed and developed several geographic information systems (GIS) for small community water systems that are topologically correct. We build these with information provided by the community.
We can build simple databases with basic asset information or more complex ones that can be used to document important activities on your system, such as pipe repairs.
Want to map your own water system, but need help getting started? No problem! Training is at the root of our work and we can provide one-on-one GIS instruction so that you can be in control of your own GIS water system.
We also co-teach a practical mapping for small community water systems workshop in collaboration with New Mexico Highlands University (NMHU), Rural Community Assistance, and New Mexico Environment Department. The workshop gives rural communities in New Mexico tools to start mapping water system assets.
Having a map and an inventory is the first step in harnessing the power of your GIS. Using spatial analysis, we can help you measure pipe lengths, count the number of your assets, find all assets in poor condition, and analyze data.
Cartography & Mapping
To ensure that the water system can be easily accessed, we’ll create printable map books or digital maps that can be accessed from your computer or smart device.
Maintenance & Support
We understand that your water system is perpetually a work in progress. We can help you keep your GIS up to date or teach you how to do it yourself.
