GIS Water & Wastewater Mapping
Does your water or wastewater system lack accurate, up-to-date maps?
Do you need a better way to efficiently manage infrastructure assets?
Our goal is to help community utilities develop and easily maintain accurate system maps for more effective planning.
Affordable Services for our Members
We work with system personnel to develop precise, customized maps of your infrastructure. Data collected in the field shows exact placement of features such as meters, valves, hydrants, lines, tanks, wells. System personnel accompanies our staff in the field to ensure we collect all the features you want.
The Trimble® GeoXH handheld receiver's accuracy is less than one foot (10-30cm) of the actual location of the feature. Details such as line size, date of installation, or manufacturer can be added to monitor and evaluate your system on a whole new level.
What is GIS?
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) combine mapping software with database management tools to collect, organize, and share many different types of information. It is much more than “just” highly accurate maps! GIS can store, display and help interpret all the important attributes of your system.
What is GPS?
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a navigation satellite system placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense and provides precise location information. It is maintained by the U.S. government and is freely accessible by anyone with a GPS receiver.
What Do We Receive?
∗ Large-scale wall map and/or indexed map book
∗ Digital map file with software
∗ Training to get the most out of your GIS project
∗ All data and maps are owned by the system
Fees are based on the number of data features to be collected and the actual time required to produce the maps. Time required varies per system and will be included in your estimate. We work with you to design a project that meets your budget. NMRWA provides a scope of work, a cost estimate for the data collection plus map production, and a service contract.
How Do We Start?
Just contact NMRWA and express your interest in a mapping project. We will do a short presentation for your governing body and a pre-assessment survey to determine exact project needs.
