City of Sebring

Like thousands of water utilities across the United States, the City of Sebring (FL) Utilities Department is tasked with providing a safe and reliable water supply, while managing all the dispersed assets of the water distribution and wastewater systems. And like every water utility, Sebring needs to regularly locate, map and inspect these assets to maintain service levels and operations. Typically, this means an expensive Geographic Information System (GIS) and the use of outside surveyors utilizing specialized GPS equipment. When Sebring evaluated this approach, they received a quote for GIS software that was over $30,000 and bids for surveying services that were as high as $300,000. And that didn’t even include the mobile tools to collect the data or integration with their existing CAD system.
