Missouri City GIS Bridge Inventory
CobbFendley collaborated with the City to inventory and assess 90 bridge structures. Multiple meetings were held to determine the pertinent bridge structure characteristics that needed to be collected. Field engineers used tablets to access an interactive cloud-based GIS mapping solution built to collect bridge attributes. Pictures for each bridge structure were also captured and included as geodatabase attachments. Rankings for each bridge structure were established to prioritize maintenance critical structures. The entire data collection process was digital – no paper forms were used. A cloud-based web map was also built to track the collection progress, as well as QA/QC the data as it was collected. The deliverable included an ArcGIS for Desktop Map Document (.mxd) and file geodatabase. The associated bridge structure PDF inspection forms were hyperlinked to each bridge structure.
