Flint River Water Planning and Policy Center selects GO! Sync

California, USA, 25 May 2007: TC Technology’s GO! Sync for ArcPad is selected for a statewide water meter installation planning project at Flint River Water Planning and Policy Center at Albany State University (FRWPPC at ASU).

FRWPPC at ASU is currently working on a project with the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission to map agricultural water permit sites and their respective irrigated areas. Georgia is in the process of metering all permitted agricultural water, but must find locations for the permitted withdrawal points before the sites can be evaluated for meter installation. FRWPPC at ASU has been contracted to find the sites based on current GIS databases and farmer input. They are using Trimble GPS units to map the permit sites, and to draw polygons around irrigated areas.

“GO! Sync for ArcPad benefits mapping personnel by allowing check in through a remote docking station, automatically uploading their edits in a matter of minutes and eliminating hours of travel time each week. Before GO! Sync, it was very tedious checking in data from multiple units to a single Geodatabase on the network. Now there is peace of mind knowing the data collected in the field will be easily uploaded to existing data without conflict.” comments Project Manager Shelly Jones of Georgia WPPC.

GO! Sync for ArcPad allows organizations using ESRI’s ArcPad software to streamline the data, device, and application management process. It is a turnkey solution that automates the process of synchronizing GIS and GPS data stored on handheld devices with data stored in ArcSDE or a personal geodatabase (pGDB).
