The holidays are just around the corner, and we are getting close to “wrapping” up another year! With that being said, we thought we would take a quick glance back at the top 5 AssetAlly articles of 2018!
Did you know that AssetAlly allows you with the capability to search for and add various layers of your choosing into your application via the “Layer Catalog” feature? This could be data particular to the county you are in, or from more expansive resources such as NOAA or The Department of Agriculture.
The Upload Data feature is useful when you have spatial content you'd like to see in AssetAlly. Now, what kind of spatial content could this be? Maybe you have a shapefile from a CAD export or site developer you'd like to visualize. Maybe you have your own surveying equipment and want to take its X/Y coordinates to see if your utility locations are accurate. This data can all be imported and overlayed on top of all your existing GIS data!
Have you ever wanted to quickly and easily add water laterals into your GIS? AssetAlly gives you the ability to do this on your own. Say, for instance, you had a list of all the lead laterals in your community you would like to enter into your application as a reference for future projects. Learn how in this quick tutorial!
The Save Project feature is a convenient tool that allows you to save work done in your GIS, such as collections, mark-ups, bookmarks, layer configurations, and more. This allows you to easily return to a project without having to re-do the work.
If you are a frequent user of GIS, you've probably encountered a few situations where you need to see a large number of layers, but only need to access the data for one or two of them. If you've ever wondered how to narrow down what results you'll bring back when using identify tools, then you're in the right place!
This week we will cover the basics of our Illicit Discharge Inspection Tool! We decided to make the long and grueling inspection process easier for you by putting this tool in your AssetAlly application. Not only does the Discharge Inspection Tool allow you to access important attribute data associated with outfall structures in your community, but it also conveniently produces an organized PDF report containing the information you entered into your GIS.
