ArcMap Extension For Emergency Repairs
Tools: ArcMap 9.x, ArcObjects, Visual Basic 6
San Francisco Water employees are regularly called out for emergency repairs of valves, fittings, and hydrants across the city. ViewPoint Geography worked with the SF Water team to upgrade an existing in-field system from ArcView 3.3 and Avenue scripts to an ArcMap and ArcObjects 9.x extension.
The system allows users to quickly locate an intersection and identify the water components in the area. Users create 'sessions' that contain data (including text, photos, video, and audio) for a set of valves, hydrants, fittings. A history of service is stored and can be quickly recalled at any time.
