1 Field Based Infrastructure Inventories and Deficiency Logging - Sidewalks Oct 2012 – OMG Presentation - Author dhMarion

2 Provision of a Data Rich Environment The City spends a great deal of time, effort and money to keep mapping, property, address and other databases current. The standards and procedures used to maintain these assets were established to promote widespread corporate use. Our data is the most current information available. No other sources, be they public or private, have the quality of data available that our business systems require. The term quality of data includes: accuracy, currency, completeness and integration.

3 Application Needs Applications that rely on mapping data can be seen as evolving entities that rely on a steady diet of data. Data solutions provided by vendors are rarely, if ever, adequate to meet the Citys needs over its entire operating requirements.

4 Infrastructure Inventories 1. How many Municipalities know what they own? 2. Of those that have an idea of what they own, how are they positioned to have reliable status of the asset? 3. Is your group managing risk? For sidewalks, can they state categorically they meet minimum provincial maintenance standards? Will their inspections stand up in a court of law to defend a trip claim? Is the Operating budget being spent in proactive rather than reactive way? 1. How many Municipalities know what they own? 2.

5 Past Practise Driven yearly Paper notes Maintenance Drivers Claims for Slip and Fall Capital Projects Complaints from the public and businesses Driven yearly Paper notes Maintenance Drivers Claims for Slip and Fall Capital Projects Complaints from the public and businesses

6 Business Drivers Proactive Maintenance Spend operating wisely Deal with most pressing problems first Risk Management

7 Business Plan Driven to meet PMMS Original Project Budget $125,000 for third party application $75,000 for third party hardware* Ongoing third party software support and maintenance *original budget was for Sidewalks and Road Signs Driven to meet PMMS Original Project Budget $125,000 for third party application $75,000 for third party hardware* Ongoing third party software support and maintenance *original budget was for Sidewalks and Road Signs

8 Commercial Products Turnkey systems are available Several vendor demonstrations Several customer site visits Turnkey systems are available Several vendor demonstrations Several customer site visits

9 Results Commercial products with proprietary handheld devices most suited for meter reading* Very complex host/client software* No installations were happy, and some had shelved products worth hundreds of thousands of dollars *Proprietary mapping interfaces, limited memory and tiny screens etc. Commercial products with proprietary handheld devices most suited for meter reading* Very complex host/client software* No installations were happy, and some had shelved products worth hundreds of thousands of dollars *Proprietary mapping interfaces, limited memory and tiny screens etc

10 Geomatics Approach Review commercial products Speak with Managers and Supervisors to get Key functional requirements Speak with staff who used to do the drive-by work for their input Simple tablet-sync-workstation software model Leverage our data Leverage our Bentley ELS licenses Review commercial products Speak with Managers and Supervisors to get Key functional requirements Speak with staff who used to do the drive-by work for their input Simple tablet-sync-workstation software model Leverage our data Leverage our Bentley ELS licenses

12 Our Approach Summer Students Portable tablets Simple application Three month blitz Classifications based on severity Defensible Reproducible Summer Students Portable tablets Simple application Three month blitz Classifications based on severity Defensible Reproducible

13 Revised Budget ORIGINAL PROJECT Commercial Solution $125k Proprietary Handhelds (4) $100k ======================== $225k+ Ongoing yearly maintenance $15k ORIGINAL PROJECT Commercial Solution $125k Proprietary Handhelds (4) $100k ======================== $225k+ Ongoing yearly maintenance $15k GEOMATICS SOLUTION Software Licenses $0 Hardware (4) $16k ====================== $16k Ongoing yearly maintenance* $0 * Development time and ongoing maintenance are non-charged activities. Geomatics had already tested the GPS integration in Microstation. Total development time of approximately 30days for a single developer. Purchased 25 CFH2 Units for a multitude of user groups that include; Noisewalls, LED Retrofit, Bridge inspection etc.

15 Lessons Learned Inconsistencies between individual inspectors; How they interpret and apply criteria Four (4) students were sufficient to walk 2500km of sidewalks in 3 months GPS not always optimal depending of area and cover, the use of the base map (selecting a point) is very important Testing with Gobi2000 (3G) modem underway Cost of transmitting record attributes Cost of transmitting images - 6GB/Month plan Inconsistencies between individual inspectors; How they interpret and apply criteria Four (4) students were sufficient to walk 2500km of sidewalks in 3 months GPS not always optimal depending of area and cover, the use of the base map (selecting a point) is very important Testing with Gobi2000 (3G) modem underway Cost of transmitting record attributes Cost of transmitting images - 6GB/Month plan
