Smartphones, Tablets and GPS Accuracy

Implementing mobile solutions that target the needs of your field workforce, that leverage your investment in the ArcGIS platform, and are available on the most modern and cost effective device platforms is critical when defining your mobile strategy.

Location is important and depending upon what you are mapping, locational accuracy can make or break a GIS. When considering the use of smartphone and tablet platforms one of the first questions you may ask is – how accurate is the GPS?? The answer to this question will shape the decision you make on device platforms. Or will it?? Continue reading

Esri GPS Base Station "gisa"

Esri has installed a permanent building mounted Global Positioning System/Global Navigation Satellite System (GPS/GNSS) base station in Redlands, California named “gisa”. GISA operates a Trimble NetR9, dual-frequency GPS/GNSS receiver with Zephyr Geodetic Model 2 antenna. The base station meets National Geodetic Survey Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS) guidelines and is in the process of being incorporated into their national CORS network.

Now on ArcGIS.com: More Hydro-Related Webmaps

Of interest to its hydro customers, Esri has web-enabled four more hydro-related soil maps of the United States from the NRCS SSURGO dataset.  The source of the data for these maps is the Map Unit Aggregate Attribute table or MUAGGATT. 

The new maps released are as follows:
Ponding Frequency – Presence*

The percentage of the map unit that is subject to water being ponded on the soil surface, expressed as one of four classes; 0-14%, 15-49%, 50-74% or 75-100%.


Water Table Depth – Annual Minimum*

The shallowest depth to a wet soil layer (water table) at any time during the year expressed as centimeters from the soil surface, for components whose composition in the map unit is equal to or exceeds 15%.


Water Table Depth – April-June Minimum*

The shallowest depth to a wet soil layer (water table) during the months of April through June expressed in centimeters from the soil surface for components whose composition in the map unit is equal to or exceeds 15%.

Bedrock Depth-Minimum*

The distance from the soil surface to the top of a bedrock layer, expressed as a shallowest depth of components whose composition in the map unit is equal to or exceeds 15%.

In addition to the new maps, some changes were made to the cartography
on the previously released maps entitled Drainage Class-Dominant
and Drainage Class-Wettest.  In these webmaps, the new color
scheme has been improved to allow for an easier comparison of soil
drainage characteristics.  With the new scheme it is now much easier to
read whether soil drains too much or too little (according to NRCS’
existing classification scheme), and how much or how little in
comparison to neighboring soils.

*These maps are ready to use, but are still beta products at the moment.  They will undergo further review, so keep in mind that map colors and the contents page are subject to change.  The data is in the same state it was since being provided by the NRCS.  So, the data itself is not subject to change, only the cartography and the web medium.

Special thanks to Michael Dangermond for providing the post. Questions for Michael:  MDangermond@esri.com.

Gulf Oil Spill Response – Shoreline Assessment Forms

When spilled oil contaminates a shoreline, responders must survey the affected areas to determine the best response. Surveyors must follow standard forms set by NOAA for shoreline and wetland assessment. ArcGIS Mobile is the ideal solution for helping surveyors determine that response in a timely and efficient manner. It is simple, easy to use and deploy, requires little to no training for responders, and information collected can be synchronized to a Command Center in near real-time providing situational awareness and ultimately improving how decisions are made when it matters most.

Last week, the Mobile Team created a data model for the SCAT assessment form (short form) which is used by responders. After defining the data model, the Mobile Project Center was used to create a project that can leverage the intelligence of that data model directly inside of the ArcGIS Mobile 10.0 ready to use applications.Responders can now use the GPS capabilities of the application to capture segment lines and zone points, fill out a form that meets the SCAT specification and instantly synchronize their content to the command center.

The pre-release of ArcGIS Mobile 10.0 and a project centered around the SCAT model was then hosted in the cloud and is now being ground tested now in the Gulf and shown to responders. 

The Mobile team is also working very closely with a key business partner in the efforts on the ground called URSCorp. Lori Cunningham and her staff have successfully deployed a custom 9.3.1 ArcGIS Mobile application to the attention of Coast Guard officials centered out of Mobile Alabama’s Command Center today (Sunday). Their application enables surveyors to collect segments using GPS, attach comments and photos that use the mobile service to synchronize content back to the server in real-time. A PDF for each surveyed segment can be generated from a web application for printing.

Stay tuned for more from the Mobile team on this and other emergency response efforts…
