October 14, 2002 – Field mapping software company Tadpole-Cartesia, and Miner & Miner, a developer and implementer of the award-winning ArcFM Solution for utilities, have jointly announced the successful pre-implementation trials of their combined technologies at Alliant Energy to automate the transmission of geospatial maintenance and revision data to field crews.

This project is the first to be completed by Miner & Miner and Tadpole-Cartesia with a major utility since announcing a strategic alliance and technology partnership earlier this year. Its success now paves the way for Alliant to extend its rollout of the ArcFM Solution to include mobile and disconnected field units, using Tadpole’s bolt-on GeoSync data synchronization modules.
