Field services mobility solution for NSW Spatial Services.
NSW Spatial Services engaged Mobiddiction to build Survey Mark, an on-field mobility application.
This tool is designed to help NSW surveyors working in the field to locate, review and report on survey mark information.
The app is open to the public, however, the target customer base are surveyors and members of the spatial and construction industries.
“Survey Mark is Spatial Service’s first venture into the delivery of services via commercially available mobile platforms.”
On-field spatial integration with a touch experience
Repeatable Test and Release Framework
Spatial Services engaged us to develop a framework to facilitate future organisational mobile development for Spatial Services. The Survey Mark mobility application’s purpose is to enable Surveyors working in the field to readily access information regarding survey marks and submit feedback instantly regarding the status of the mark.
Survey Mark uses a hybrid model with a single codebase and leverages existing Spatial Services technology frameworks including SCIMS online, ArcGIS for spatial information for SCIMS marks and ESRI JSAPI for the display of the imagery.
Spatial Services and Mobiddiction Collaboration
Both teams at Spatial Services and Mobiddiction collaborated using an agile project delivery methodology. Our delivery included a requirements review, design, documentation, build, test and release of a new publicly accessible Survey Mark mobile application.
Internal team members and stakeholders at Spatial Services included the Project Lead, Survey Services group within Information Sourcing, ICT staff, Directors of IS and ICT and other Senior Spatial Services and ICT Management. The Mobiddiction delivery team consisted of our Project Lead, our mobile GIS and technology consulting specialists, UX, UI, QA delivery and our product development team.
The project team at Spatial Services worked closely with our team members, whether it was to help us understand their tool in greater detail or to collaborate on a solution on a feature set. This approach enabled us to achieve a great outcome which was the on-time and on-budget delivery of Survey Mark.
The Survey Mark application has been very well received. We plan to continue to work with Spatial Services to support the Survey Mark application and develop new features over time.
Zooming and other map interactions. We have also addressed few other minor bugs and improved the performance of the app. You can leave your feedback or concerns by going to settings section of the app and selecting ‘App feedback’.
We have also update the app to new web services that provide GDA94 coordinates (with Class and Order) or GDA2020 coordinates (along with new positional and Local Uncertainty values, where available) for SCIMS survey marks in NSW.
