City of Edmonton Launches Pilot for Intergraph® and Leica Geosystems GIS Solution PDF Print E-mail

Integrated Offering Provides Enhanced Tracking of Parks Department Assets

Huntsville, Ala., June 5, 2012 – Intergraph® announces that the City of Edmonton, Canada, has implemented a pilot program that will use Intergraph and Leica Geosystems combined products for enhanced tracking of assets within its expansive network of public parks. The City of Edmonton is utilizing the Leica CS25 ultra rugged tablet and the GG02+ GNSS Smart Antenna, the most accurate data collection and update system available today for GIS professionals, in conjunction with Intergraph’s GeoMedia®, a powerful GIS management product. Together, Intergraph and Leica Geosystems contribute to Hexagon’s comprehensive portfolio, addressing all aspects of the geospatial life cycle – from capture to delivery.

Managed by the Parks Branch within the City of Edmonton, the pilot program will allow city workers and officials to track the condition of park-related assets through the use of a Leica Geosystems device running Intergraph’s GeoMedia software. For the past five years, the Parks Branch has been collecting information in the field regarding these assets. This integrated solution provides a means to easily track and better perform maintenance and condition assessments for all of its properties. 

“We have spent a significant amount of time collecting data regarding all of our assets, and now we need to continually assess their condition,” said Michael Boychuk, GIS Coordinator, Parks Branch. “By running this pilot program, we now have a mechanism for our workers in the field to report backthe condition of any asset within our expansive park system.”

The Parks Branch is currently using devices to download the existing asset data from its GIS database. The new mobile data will be updated when field workers perform condition inspections, as well as add on new data regarding new assets – streamlining the entire workflow. 

GeoMedia enables users to realize the maximum value of their geospatial resources, integrating them to present clear, actionable information. It provides simultaneous access to geospatial data in almost any form, uniting them in a single map view for efficient processing, analysis, presentation and sharing. GeoMedia's intuitive, dynamic analysis functionality enables concatenation of analysis processes so the results of one operation feed directly into the next process, as well as automatic updating of results in response to data changes.

The Leica CS25 is a versatile tablet computer combining a 7’’ screen, fully rugged and lightweight. It provides a highly useable means for accomplishing data collection tasks efficiently, taking the office to the field. The GG02+ Smart Antenna is the most accurate system for GIS data collection and update. It brings high-accuracy RTK positions to the GIS user in a seamless way. Centimeter accuracy can be achieved either in post-process or real time by using the Leica SmartNet correction service or radio links. Coupled with GeoMedia’s flexible architecture, the two products provide a dynamic solution.

“This pilot is a prime example of how two Hexagon companies can be fully integrated to provide real-world solutions for any organization that is tracking assets in the field,” said Mladen Stojic, Vice President, Geospatial at Intergraph SG&I. “The combined offering provides a complete end-to-end solution for making data relevant and actionable, allowing any organization to be more efficient and effective.”

The City of Edmonton has more than 460 parks and hosts the largest expanse of urban parkland in North America with its North Saskatchewan River Valley parks.
