SiteMap® App: Taking Project Information Accessibility to the Next Level

SiteMap® App: Taking Project Information Accessibility to the Next Level

Do you know how the pyramids were built? Nobody really does, but the most likely answer is that the Egyptians used a sloping and encircling embankment of brick, sand, and earth, which was increased in height and length as the pyramid rose. Stone blocks were then hauled up the ramp using sledges, rollers, and levers. It is estimated that this took 20 years and used the labor of 100,000 men! Now, imagine doing all of that without a project manager. It wouldn’t be feasible. Someone or a group of people likely managed the build, and it would have been a lot easier with the technology that GPRS and SiteMap® have today.

In today’s fast-paced world, accessibility to critical project information is key to informed decision-making and successful project management. With SiteMap® (patent pending) powered by GPRS, we have a groundbreaking solution designed to revolutionize the accessibility and management of project data. SiteMap is transforming the landscape of project information accessibility, and gps utility mapping, one project at a time.

The Challenge of Project Information Accessibility

Project management involves juggling a multitude of data points, from blueprints and utility layouts to maintenance records and real-time updates. Accessing and managing this information efficiently can be a significant challenge, especially when dealing with subsurface utility data.

Traditional methods often involve cumbersome paperwork, scattered documents, or complex systems, hindering accessibility and decision-making. GIS utility mapping helps eliminate some of the extra clutter and risks that come along with traditional methods of project management and underground mapping.

SiteMap® understands that accessing your data is important to the successful management of your project, especially when dealing with underground utility maps and data. There have been many cases of mismanagement causing issues even outside of the utility infrastructure industry, and most of them result from a lack of project information accessibility.

Consider the building of the Airbus A380, which resulted in the company paying $6 billion in fixes due to a miscommunication with computer aided systems. Two companies designed different parts for the project, and later found that the parts didn’t fit together. This was the result of poor communication and project information accessibility and could have been avoided with the proper platform and communication.

You may also consider the case of Knight Capital, who lost $440 million in just 30 minutes, plus another 75% of stock over the next two days, all due to a glitch in their system. The technology you use, the method of communication you use, and how well your team has access to project information matters more than you’d think. SiteMap® helps keep your team connected, saving you stress and money,  while helping to safeguard your project from possible failure.

The app is packed with features and makes navigating your project as simple as a few clicks, or taps. 

Data Visualization

The app’s visualization capabilities transform complex data into easily understandable visual representations. The visualization capabilities of technology that GPRS uses can do a lot, even discovering lost boats near the pyramids, which may help unlock more of their mystery.  Users can overlay different data sets, facilitating comprehensive analysis and decision-making. With SiteMap®, you make your data work for you. Campus, facility, or distributed assets all receive GPRS’ 99.8% subsurface visualization accuracy, aggregated to provide an instant snapshot – past, present & future – secured in one centralized, accessible database, with SiteMap Pro. Your data is layered, mapped, and cross-referenced so that it can be updated as needed. Intelligently Visualizing The Built World® is easy with GPRS.

Live Updates

Real-time updates keep users informed about changes or developments in project data, ensuring that decisions are based on the most current information available. With SiteMap, you’ll have access to your GPRS data as soon as your locate job completes. After that, depending on the subscription tier, you’ll also be able to add your own data, including access to historical data.  While SiteMap® contains its own intuitive GIS component, it can also easily integrate with your existing GIS software to provide an extra layer of safety and security for your data – powered by GPRS’ 99.8% accuracy rating across more than 400,000 jobs. With an increased level of project access, you could get a lot more done with a lot less.

 Collaboration Features

The app fosters collaboration by enabling seamless sharing of project data among team members. This feature enhances communication and coordination, leading to more efficient project management. You decide the number of users, their level of access, and how your data is used. From historical data through current as-builts, you can put the right information into the right hands exactly when they need it. However, the features you have, and the data you see, depend on your subscription level. With such a level of collaboration, the pyramids probably could have been built in at least half the time.
