Acquire real-time data
A utility organization may want to visually represent the live status of its network with information that is captured by sensors in the field. While the sensors on the network are not physically moving, their status and the information they send changes very rapidly. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is being used in a wide variety of environments to keep track of items of interest. Warehouses and logistics companies use RFID to track and monitor inventory levels. Hospitals use it to track equipment to make sure it has gone through proper cleaning procedures before entering another patient’s room.
A wide range of real-time data is accessible today. Connectors exist for many common devices and sensors enabling easy integration into your GIS.
