Bright Rain has developed a suite of ArcGIS extensions to integrate with Infrastructure Technologies signature pipe inspection product, inspectIT. These modules send asset data between the inspection software and the enterprise GIS minimizing redundant storage and data entry time. The modules also provide an effective means to disseminate inspection video and data.
Programming and analysis was conducted for Seattle Public Utilities to identify closed contours that represent potential flood areas within the City. A custom analysis model was built using ArcObjects that identified all closed contours within the city limits and analyzed them for potential flooding.
