Schneider Geospatial can customize many different applications that you could require. These are just a few of the examples of solutions we've built out for our clients.

Utility Locating - This application gathers as-built information within a GIS database of existing infrastructure. The system is a wireless data broadcast network for highly accurate, real-time GPS applications that uses a nationwide digital wireless coverage from multiple rovers to a single base station or a network of multiple base stations.  The utility has combined the base station system with their GIS, a multi-level website and a utility locate application (V.Locate) within their GIS to significantly reduce effort and costs. Schneider Geospatial's Utility Locating includes:

  • Provide route surveys for proposed utility lines

  • Collect as-built field data on existing utility lines

  • Collect information from as-built project drawings

  • AutoCAD data entry

  • Data maintenance

  • Development and implementation of an internal GIS system that incorporates digital construction documents and surveys, 3D modeling, and other map data.

  • Development of a web-based viewing application

Location-based Delivery Verification - Schneider Geospatial worked developing a GPS enabled delivery verification system. This system verifies product deliveries to closely located recipients along delivery routes, based on GPS location and delivery speed using GPS data loggers assigned to each delivery personnel. The system also includes a web application for delivery management and reporting tools for various user roles. Once achieved a predetermined threshold, they were able to enable a geo-payment solution. Location-based Delivery Verification features include:

  • Quick GPS data logger check-out / check-in processing

  • Configurable verification thresholds and results reporting

  • Interactive mapping to spatially view delivery paths

  • Integration with multiple third-party systems  

Asset Data Management System - Schneider Geospatial created a System Requirements Specification (SRS). The purpose is to provide a secure, statewide repository of information regarding transportation assets, including local and county roads and bridges, asset management and training resources, to assist local and county transportation agencies throughout the state with better understanding, planning, and forecasting the condition and maintenance of these assets in compliance with state regulations. We provided technical research, interviews, design, prototyping and documentation services to create the data management system specifications. Items defined in the SRS include:

  • User roles

  • Data architecture, flow, validation, and processing

  • Capacity and workload

  • Data security requirements and user security/access control

  • System deployment environmental, operational, and availability requirements

  • User interface design and accessibility requirements

  • GIS mapping requirements

  • GIS-based mobile data collection design

Fleet & Equipment - The application enables managers to track inventories of an organization’s fleet assets, including vehicles and equipment. Asset work order management, including automated preventative maintenance notifications and customizable maintenance schedules which are designed for each specific vehicle and piece of equipment within an inventory, enables the end user to build multi-point inspection checklists and comprehensive maintenance schedules. By having all of this information available via email and on the dashboard, minimal planned downtime for equipment can be anticipated thereby maximizing your return on investment.

Not only does Fleet & Equipment track order management, but it also has a comprehensive fuel tracking and reporting module that enables the user to track fuel use summaries by asset, department or fuel location. This allows for easy identification of possible overages in usage thresholds, either by miles per gallon or by miles driven. It may also alert for potential maintenance issues.

Draincalc Assessment - Draincalc is a software solution designed for drainage assessment professionals to meet everyday requirements of assessing drainage benefit.

  • A tool to utilize watershed data

  • Allows drainage officials to quickly, accurately create the assessment

  • Utilizes the geoprocessing functionality of ArcGIS

  • Meant to allow non-GIS people to benefit from GIS

Draincalc automates the process of identifying landowners who receive the benefit of drainage reconstruction and maintenance projects then calculates the corresponding rates. It allows the local drainage professional to select a combination of assessment methods commonly used for calculating each property owner’s benefit of the drainage project.

Draincalc applies advanced GIS processes and utilizes Esri’s ArcGIS as its foundation to provided drainage assessment professionals. The tools quickly and accurately formulate what-if scenarios and calculate the impartial assessment for watershed drainage. Advanced GIS geoprocessing methods are used to compute a parcel area in any given watershed, along with the percentage of total area. Draincalc also incorporates the capabilities to include numerous GIS layers which impact drainage assessments, such as building footprints, watersheds, soils, land use, zoning, and impervious surfaces.

In addition to all the analysis functions, Draincalc has additional flexibility to generate custom reports and hearing notices for each project. The solution is also designed to integrate with other databases, such as CAMA and/or tax billing databases, to pull the most current property information.
 
The Draincalc design is based on advanced analysis capabilities, flexibility in assessment methodology, and dynamic custom reports, thus making this solution applicable to any drainage assessment project. We listened to the drainage professionals to design a tool that met both today’s drainage assessment needs and the demands for tomorrow.

Ripple Public Records Systems Management - Ripple allows you to crosscheck your disparate public records systems, improve the accuracy of the data in each of your systems, and better manage property information.

Do you need help quickly comparing your Assessor, Auditor, Treasurers, GIS and/or other databases? If so then  Ripple™ is for you and your organization. Ripple™ will make your job better, faster and more accurate by integrating the databases pertaining to assessment, CAMA, tax, real estate and more.

​Quickly identify where and how your data is not synchronizing with other systems. The product streamlines your data inputs and quality control. Ripple™ will allow you to update data in multiple databases without having to open each one. Saving you time by eliminating input on the same data multiple times.

Ripple helps saves time as you compare property records in your GIS, tax, and CAMA application by combining them into one convenient tool that compares the records across all these applications. With Ripple™, you can move directly from an individual’s record in your tax system to that record in your CAMA application and then to your desktop GIS or even to your public record website! This functionality is often applied to GIS, CAMA, and tax; but it can be easily expanded to other property management databases.
 
It does matter because with Ripple’s integration to third-party applications investments ensures that the data is correct in all databases. The additional expenses are accrued as the manual property management processes move from office to office. This automation reduces the time consumed by this type of project and the amount of money and resources necessary to address individual database corrections. We all hate to do things repeatedly. Consolidate and make it one step in one tool shared by all the offices managing part of the process.


The quality control technology in Ripple allows you to improve the integrity of your land records management. Working back and forth in each of your land records systems (GIS, tax, CAMA, etc.), Ripple™ can implement procedures which you design to check the quality of your data. For example, Ripple can compare data in your tax system to the data in your GIS to identify if any parcels exist in one, but are missing in the other. It can compare the geometry of parcels in your GIS to the deeded acreage in your CAMA system and flag a record that falls outside of your user-defined tolerance level. Ripple’s parcel number management technology employs a drag-and-drop functionality to move new parcel numbers from the database to the records, thus eliminating typos and other errors that prevent your system from being in sync. today’s drainage assessment needs and the demands for tomorrow.
