UtiliPad allows field technicians the ability to capture highly accurate GNSS data measurements using supported third party hardware (sold separately) directly on his/her iPhone or iPad device. Like Tri-Global Technologies’ other software innovations, all information collected is centric to utility line operations. UtiliPad users have the ability to simply switch between utility line types, collect accurate geographic locational data, and record simple attribute information including, but not limited to, type of feature, photograph, notes, and relational spatial data references. Upon completion of field collection activities, user can then save work as a PDF map data sheet and transfer into their iTunes library. This PDF map data sheet can be used as a simple As-Built generation tool for any type of basic utility design or documentation.


Advanced users or organizations seeking enterprise level deployments can upgrade their UtiliPad experience to include Tri-Global DataOrbit for data synchronization between field and office operations allowing collected data to be exported from Tri-Global DataView to multiple GIS, CAD, and generic database formats.
