Water, wastewater, and storm water professionals now have access to an online hub of useful information and practical guides designed specifically for water utility geographic information systems (GIS) as ESRI launches the Resource Center for Water Utilities Management.
The Resource Center offers step-by-step videos and templates for editing asset data, sharing information with the mobile workforce, and creating a dashboard for managers. Visitors can read direct feedback from other water utilities along with case studies and industry best practices. ESRI’s GIS technology has long supported the water, wastewater, and storm water industries through ArcGIS software for desktop, mobile, and server. GIS provides water utilities with a mapping and database platform for infrastructure management and construction, utility operations and maintenance, planning, engineering, and administration.
“The Resource Center gives the ArcGIS water utility community a one-stop place to go for information,” said Lori Armstrong, ESRI’s water and wastewater manager. “Many water utilities already depend on ArcGIS to manage data, carry out daily operations, make long-term plans, and improve customer service. We created this site with the water utility industry in mind. We want to simplify the use of ArcGIS by highlighting best practices and providing templates specifically for water, wastewater, and storm water.”
