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.

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.
