Have you ever spent hours in the field trying to find a missing valve, manhole, meter, etc.? If you’ve ever wished that finding old record drawings could be done without spending hours digging through dusty roles of plans, if you’ve ever wondered how you can access old construction photo’s in the field, if you’ve ever wanted to find detailed customer information but didn’t want to spend hours looking it up, this talk is for you./ Magna Water and Sewer District used to store record drawing in paper files like many municipalities, which was an inefficient, inaccurate, and hard-to-use system. Understanding the importance of having this information readily available to staff, Clint and Kim developed a multi-year project to digitize the district's records and create a GIS system where the needed information was organized and easy to access. In this talk, Clint and Kim will talk about the fundamental components of the system, challenges of the transformation, and lessons learned through the process./ If you don’t yet have a GIS system or you wish your system had more information but you don’t think you have the budget to improve, if you want your inspectors to enter data directly into the system, if you want to build a file structure that is easy to use now and in the future, this talk is for you.
