Using ArcGIS Online and Collector for ArcGIS, CobbFendley built a mobile cloud pole collection application for the telecommunications field crew. As part of AT&T’s joint use pole agreement with El Paso Electric (EPE), telecommunications crew members were deployed to collect pole information across 13 El Paso AT&T wire centers.
The City of Seabrook, like many other municipalities across the nation, realized the advantages of having a Geographic Information System to warehouse large quantities of civic data. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have the unique ability to tie information together in a common system that can be shared not only throughout each city department, but also readily distributed to businesses and private citizens as needed.
