About This Course

This instructional course teaches students how to map and manage utility data using advanced GIS technology. Master the process of converting GPS files (KML, CSV, TXT exported from utility locating equipment such as RD8100, UtiliGuard 2, vLocPro2, LMX100, and mobile GPS applications such as PointMan) to GIS datasets using desktop software, and then build 3D web-based mapping applications to access and share utility maps and data online in a secure and private cloud GIS environment.

This utility mapping training offers a workflow to transform your utility mapping services and deliverables. This training will walk your team through a sample project to collect high accuracy GPS data using PointMan and an external GPS/GNSS receiver, import GPS data into free desktop GIS software, digitize and map utilities, organize data for cloud GIS software, create 3D visualizations and web-based mobile mapping applications, and integrate data with Augmented Reality software to visualize utilities in AR on your smartphone, in the field.

This is a complete step-by-step guide which includes:

  • 1yr Subscription to PointMan ($495 value)
  • 3+ Hours of Instructional How-To Videos
  • 1hr Instructor-Led Workshop
  • Initial Cloud GIS & AR Setup
  • Sample GPS and GIS data files
  • Preconfigured GIS map files
  • Practical & challenging lesson assignments
  • 24x7 learner assistance and support
