Webinar | Building Your Google Earth GIS Model & Map Part 1
June 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Effective asset management is critical to the overall financial performance of water utilities. Waiting until assets fail rather than planning for replacement significantly increases the cost of service. Developing and maintaining a detailed asset inventory is the first step in the process. GIS mapping tools can make the job easier.
Participants will receive a step-by-step tutorial on how to map a water system’s assets using free Google Earth Pro for Desktop.
Participants will learn:
- The basics tools of Google Earth needed to map water system assets
- How to derive water man pipe lengths and surface elevations for evaluating pipe alignmentsand tank sites for hydraulic analysis, project planning and cost estimating
- How to edit, save and share your Google Earth Pro maps
Participants should download and install the free Google Earth Pro for Desktop software before the class (https://www.google.com/earth/versions/#download-pro)
The recommended audience includes operators, managers, and board members engineers and administrative staff.
