GIS in the Field: Office to Mobile Workforce Integration

New GIS e-symposium! Imagine a GIS system that incorporates two-way connectivity between the company headquarters, satellite field offices and roving field technicians by using web technology.  Integrating and deploying a mobile work force with an existing large-scale enterprise GIS and database systems are becoming an ever more important facet for E&P.  Over time, large companies have made enormous investments into their information management and GIS systems but find the mobile field teams are often disconnected from the enterprise system.

Glenn Vlass, from CartoPac Field Solutions, will discuss how a business can enable a two-way connectivity between the company headquarters, satellite field offices and roving field technicians with web technology.  Mr. Vlass will discuss how web technology can be integrated into existing applications and discuss how a mobile workforce can be enabled to collect highly accurate data, either new assets or inspecting existing assets, while using the most up-to-date information from the company enterprise database without timely data conversions.
