Wrexham County Borough Council approached exeGesIS to carry out a 16% random sample survey of their rights of way network in order for them to gain an impression of the overall condition of their network. As our CAMS Mobile product was being warmly received by several authorities, we decided that this would be the right opportunity for its first use on a larger scale structured survey.
The surveyor found the system easy to use in the field, and was impressed with the performance, GPS response and camera quality in the tablet. The 16% survey equated to about 140km of public rights of way, and this was completed in the field in just a couple of weeks.
After the fieldwork was successfully completed, the data were synchronised into the authority's CAMS system, allowing them to generate reports and plan for the future maintenance of the network.
