ArcGIS Online Capital Improvement Plan Viewer/Generator ArcGIS Online Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) Viewer/Generator - Weston & Sampson uses Esri’s ArcGIS Online platform to shorten the preliminary development of the CIP. By centralizing an organization’s assets into a universally accessible digital twin, we begin laying the foundation for a responsive, web-based CIP application that grows with changing asset qualities. Weston & Sampson’s CIP Viewer/Generator is designed to respond as asset attributes are updated, so organizations at the start of their inventorying process can benefit.

We are a densely populated city with a population over 100,000, and an extensive network of Sewer /Water /Drain systems.

Weston & Sampson's GIS mapping has been the most valuable tool for us in cataloging, inspecting, and maintaining our systems.

Their mapping was excellent, and was completed within scope and budget. The quality of work was excellent, and their response to our questions for changes and updates were prompt. With their products we were able to scan all of our record paper plans and geo reference to the GIS on the iPads so that field crews had the ability to update records in the field and create inspection forms.

I would highly recommend them for your mapping project.
