"Capturx is a simple, inexpensive solution that solves a problem that we've had for years," said Eric Wing, GIS system analyst at the City of Boise.
The City of Boise Fire Department uses Capturx for ArcGIS to update the fire map books used by every fire fighter to keep up to date on changing facilities and infrastructure conditions across the city. Prior to Capturx, the team updated inaccurate addresses and misplaced fire hydrants using Wite-Out® and ball point pens. Hand-annotated maps were transcribed by hand, photocopied, and then distributed to a network of 15 fire stations and 25 companies .The process took time, resources, and resulted in out-of-date map books.
The team now collects data on printed maps using digital pens and Capturx software, which automatically integrates the data into ArcGIS for immediate sharing across the network. The Fire department estimates that they've cut the process of markups and updating from 30 hours to 4 hours per month -- allowing the team to focus more time on protecting Boise lives and property instead of administrative tasks.
Adds Wing, "Most importantly, we've improved our overall workflow which ultimately saves the city a significant amount of time and money."
