Collecting field data efficiently in remote areas poses many challenges. Sporadic Internet connection and unfavourable environmental conditions relegate many project teams to collect field data using a traditional paper-based process, which lacks strong data safeguards and the ability for field and office teams to easily share information. As part of an environmental study in northern Ontario, Dillon Consulting overcame these limitations by developing a digitized data collection workflow using Collector for ArcGIS installed on ruggedized tablets.
