Mobile and Disconnected Field Data Collection

Bryan Lane, Scott Pakula

PIXIA Corp, United States of America

The Mobile and Disconnected Field Data Collection Master Class will demonstrate the use of OGC services and standards to deliver rich data collected in the field to the enterprise. The demonstration will take into account that collectors in the field will require the ability to collect geospatial data on a mobile device in disconnected or network disadvantaged environments, deliver that data back to an established enterprise, and conduct analysis on the collected data. The Master Class will cover:

• Using OGC services to enable map and imagery data

• Converting map and imagery data from the enterprise server to mobile data suited for phones and tablets

• Collecting quantitative and qualitative data in the field with mobile applications

• Updating the enterprise with field data for analysis

There will be time allocated for questions on use cases and operating the software and mobile applications at the end.
