  • South Dakota Wildlife Inventory & Land Management Application (WILMA) South Dakota Department of Game, Fish, and Parks (GFP) contracted with Timmons Group to build a centralized, web-based enterprise information system that will integrate GIS functionality with land management activities allowing for temporal tracking of land resources, management activities, land inventory, planning, and goals and objectives reporting. The application allows GFP managers, conservation officers, and other constituents edit enterprise geodatabases online. The Enterprise Land Management Internet application enables the agency to spatially manage all Game Production Areas (GPAs) and their corresponding five-year plans. In addition, the power of geospatial analysis enables users to easily and readily extract information out of the application through custom reporting, mapping, and querying. In addition to the enterprise internet application, Timmons Group developed a field-based mapping and data collection application that operates on Trimble Mapping & GIS handhelds. The mobile solution complements the web application and enables field users to check out attribute information (inventory data) for a GPA onto their mobile device and add, edit, and update data. Upon returning to the office, mobile devices are docked and data seamlessly synchronized back to the enterprise ArcSDE database. This solution utilizes ESRI ArcGIS Mobile and SQL Server Compact technologies.

  • Virginia Department of Forestry IFRIS Project
The Integrated Forest Information Resource System (IFRIS) is a centralized, web-based enterprise system that sews geospatial mapping into routine employee accomplishment recording. With IFRIS in operational use since April 2006, VDOF now has launched the next phase, the “Forest Protection and Mobile Computing” (FPMC) project. FPMC expands on the geospatial toolset by integrating use of Trimble Mapping & GIS handhelds for efficient, timely, and geospatially accurate field data collection. Secure data transfer and synchronization is created for activities such as wildfire incidents and mitigation, water quality law enforcement, and forest health observations.

  • Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)

Timmons Group contracted with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to develop ArcGIS Mobile solutions for Environmental and Transportation business needs. VDOT, as part of their planning, construction, and maintenance process, must carefully track their wetland remediation sites to ensure compliance with the appropriate state and federal regulations. The ArcGIS Mobile Solutions enable VDOT’s mobile workforce to be more productive and collect more accurate and timely information to support VDOT’s mission. Timmons Group will be expanding the number of applications to include HAZMAT, Cultural and Natural Resources, and Noise features in the near future. The ArcGIS Mobile solution includes workflows to support field data capture by VDOT Environmental staff and will leverage ArcGIS Server Replication to their Enterprise GIS database. This solution leverages Trimble Mapping & GIS handhelds to increase productivity through mobile workforce enablement.
