Using Trimble handheld GPS units, we are able to get up to decimeter positional accuracy for collected features. Decimeter accurate GPS hardware with Asset Inspection software that captures not only the location but also allows for asset photo capture and attribute update of your field assets.
This powerful combination allows Texian Geospatial to accurately and efficiently inventory all of your existing fixed assets for: Mapping of Entire Distribution System, Valves, Hydrants, Pole Attachments, Manholes, Service Areas, etc…; Database vs. Field Validation; Asset Management and Planning; and Maintenance Inspection.

GIS & GPS Field Services for Asset Management
- Asset Data Inventory - GPS and attribution of system-wide assets
- Data Conversion – Convert data, add attribution, and digitize legacy data
- Linear Asset Mapping – Map pipelines, transmission line, and collection lines using GPS and CAD data
- GIS Implementation – Implement Enterprise GIS, GPS Solutions, Geodatabase design and integration
Validating transferred assets using our system for onsite inventory will give you confidence that all of your remote equipment is accounted for accurately. Knowing what you have and where it is is the foundation for implementing any Enterprise wide system for Work and Maintenance Management and Facility Inspection Scheduling. It also benefits Operations and Accounting departments by providing an accurate inventory and location of all equipment for regulatory reporting, tax calculation, safety inspections and risk management.
In addition to locating the feature with GPS or legacy data, Texian GAS, LLC. will add attributes directly from your Enterprise database to each feature and capture a geographically linked photo for each asset. These attributes contain YOUR information about each asset and can be updated as you integrate more information into your Database. For example:
- Manufacturer – Collect Manufacturer Name, Manufacture Date, Install Data, etc…
- Part Identification Number – link to warehousing system by ID number, manufacturer or other common description.
- Legacy data – use legacy data to determine additional information.
- Photography – have a link to a georeferenced photo of the asset. Have a link to a database of CAD or other static data.
- Inspection - Get linked Photos of the Asset and Assets Specifications in addition to the XYZ Location straight from the field.
