Utilizing GIS to Promote and Plan for the Future

The City of Celina, Texas, has completely enhanced and streamlined its workflows and infrastructure management through the implementation of Esri ArcGIS and Trimble Cityworks. The city has also improved its community engagement through the creation of its “Life Connected app,” which utilizes image recognition technology and enables residents to report public asset issues and submit service requests by snapping a picture with their smartphones.

Before the adoption of a computerized maintenance management system and GIS, the City of Celina had clunky workflows and a prolonged plan review process. At times addressing was inaccurate, and they often struggled to locate existing infrastructure. ArcGIS helped solve these issues by organizing asset data, ensuring that infrastructure information was accurate and up to date. Celina, with the help of Axim Geospatial, also implemented Trimble Cityworks over a six-month period.

They currently use Trimble Cityworks to complete everything from performing inspections and executing work orders to documenting service requests and maintaining public assets. Play the video below to find out more.
