RICHMOND, VA – April 21, 2008 – Timmons Group, a leader in ESRI ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Mobile Applications Development, announced today that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has contracted with them to develop ArcGIS Mobile solutions for Environmental and Transportation business needs.
VDOT, as part of their planning, construction and maintenance process, must carefully track their wetland remediation sites to ensure compliance with the appropriate state and federal regulations. The ArcGIS Mobile Solutions will enable VDOT’s mobile workforce to be more productive and collect more accurate and timely information to support VDOT’s mission. Timmons Group will be expanding the number of applications to include HAZMAT, Cultural and Natural Resources, and Noise features in the near future. The ArcGIS Mobile solution includes workflows to support field data capture by VDOT Environmental staff and will leverage ArcGIS Server Replication to their Enterprise GIS database.
“We have assisted VDOT with many initiatives over the years, including Strategic Planning, Implementation Planning, and ArcIMS and ArcGIS Server Applications Development. We are excited to take VDOT to the next level by enabling their mobile workforce to more efficiently track their assets and features of interest. This project fits well into their recently completed strategic plan which calls for enabling business units and decentralizing the data collection and maintenance activities.” said Lowell Ballard, Director of Advanced Technologies for Timmons Group.
This solution employs the latest technologies from both Microsoft and ESRI including SQL Server Compact, the Synch Framework API, and ArcGIS Mobile.
VDOT’s Environmental Division will ultimately deploy 12 Trimble GeoXT devices within the coming year.
