Why Cartegraph is the local government solution for ArcGIS
Let’s talk about great combinations for a moment: the clock radio, the smartphone, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It’s almost hard to imagine that there was a time when these items didn’t exist. They’re all made of components that work well on their own, but somehow are even better together.
That’s exactly what's happening with Cartegraph and Esri. Individually, Cartegraph OMS and ArcGIS are powerful systems. But together? The possibilities are endless. Imagine what could happen if you combined the power of your work, asset, resource, and request data with the power of your spatial data; the questions you could answer, the problems you could solve. Whether you’re strictly a Cartegraph shop, strictly an Esri shop, or some combination of the two, the Cartegraph + ArcGIS connection has the power to simplify and enhance the way you work.
AcrGIS Basemaps and Web Maps
With access to industry-leading basemaps and enhanced web map capabilities, Cartegraph users will be able to leverage spatial data on an unprecedented level. For example, soil types can contribute to the early failure of a variety of underground assets and pavement. Demographic data can provide insight about asset usage or request frequency. Understanding the spatial relationships of those assets provides an additional layer of detail that’s especially useful for identifying problems and effectively solving them.
Cartegraph Work, Asset, Resource, and Request Management
GIS is certainly one of the building blocks of enterprise asset management, but it cannot stand alone. In addition to the basic functions of being able to inventory assets and pair them with a location, local government organizations require advanced operations management functionality—in-depth inspections, streamlined workflows, preventative maintenance scheduling, request management, predictive data, and more. With these tools, you’ll become a truly effective, cost-conscious decision maker (we can hear the taxpayers cheering for you already).
Cartegraph + Esri
Cartegraph on its own is not a GIS. ArcGIS on its own is not an operations management system. Paired together, these systems will help you be more successful than if you implemented either solution independently. Smart organizations rely on knowing the who, the what, the when, and the how. But you also need to be able to answer the where, and perhaps most importantly, the why. The answers to all of those questions lie in the use of Cartegraph and Esri, together.
