SiteMap Explained

SiteMap

SiteMap offers users a convenient way to experience facility and location data. Additionally, this geospatial solution functions as a digital storage platform for blueprints, as-built drawings, maintenance records, and permits.

The map above shows hundreds of thousands of data points that we have scanned, mapped, and stored in this database. Each blue dot represents data that has been recorded and stored. Hundreds of points are being added daily.

SiteMap grants a unified view of all users' information, whether they have one building or multiple facilities across the United States.

SITEMAP FUNCTIONALITY

The beauty of SiteMap is that it can geolocate every piece of information so the content can be located and cross-referenced on demand. Here are just a few of SiteMap's features:

  • Secure cloud-based storage
  • Upload and store as-built drawings and site records
  • Ability to import existing infrastructure data
  • Attach videos, photos, GPR data, and other documents
  • Access to GPRS data


One of the most important features of SiteMap is its direct connection to GPRS. GPRS is the largest private utility locator in the United States, and it holds the most comprehensive collection of utility information. As a result, users have access to the most accurate and current maps and facility information. But how can we ensure that the information we provide is accurate? Our scanning accuracy rate is 99.8% or higher on over 350,000 completed projects.

SiteMap


SiteMap offers three key benefits. It allows users to map their facilities, digitize their documentation, and access their documents using a single secure source.

Sitemap works as a multifunctional application, offering unique capabilities. Some of those capabilities include:

  • Infrastructure management
  • Infrastructure mapping
  • Utility cloud mapping
  • Utility management
  • Mapping software 
  • Geospatial solution
  • GIS mapping
  • Digital map viewer
  • GPS software
  • Geospatial mapping

SITEMAP CONSISTS OF 2 PRIMARY TOOLS: THE MAP VIEWER & THE DIGITAL PLAN ROOM

Viewing Your Map Data with the Map Viewer

The Map Viewer allows users to view their facility data on a GIS quickly. GIS stands for Geographic Information System. GIS is a way to create, manage, analyze, and map all types of location data. Geospatial Information Systems connect data points to digital points on a map and provide descriptive details about those points. These systems enable users to understand patterns, relationships, and geographic context. Many industries utilize these systems for mapping and analysis. This results in increased efficiency, communication, and decision-making.

Subsurface infrastructure data is typically fragmented. Facilities managers and construction directors can find organizing facility data and artifacts one of their most challenging tasks. 

Facility plans are rarely centrally located and easy to find. Critical information may only be known to a small number of people and may not be formally recorded anywhere. All this information is collected in SiteMap, which can be easily accessed, updated, and shared when needed.

Storage with the Digital Plan Room


Users can attach locational information to uploaded documents using the Map Viewer. Documents can contain information about both above-ground and underground infrastructure. Facility managers can use the Map Viewer feature to track records and georeference them. This allows them to share and update location documents more efficiently. The cloud-based technology makes all uploaded documents instantly accessible to everyone with appropriate permissions.

Storage with the Digital Plan Room

Facility drawings, records, and other relevant files are stored in the Digital Plan Room. These documents are directly viewable in the Map Viewer when appropriately tagged with the location information. You can store important documents in the Digital Plan Room.

Maintaining site security requires storing facility documents in a secure location. Documentation that is not organized poses a severe risk to site security.

Additionally, keeping all pertinent files in one location on the web makes data easier to access. Even as team members change or are added, data sharing is still accessible.

A FLEXIBLE & SCALABLE MAPPING SYSTEM

SiteMap's greatest strength is its flexibility. Almost any location data and documentation can be uploaded and organized. Examples of information a user can view and store include:

  • Utility layouts
  • As-built drawings
  • 3D models
  • Floor plans
  • Structural drawings
  • Subsurface void information
  • Drone Imagery
  • Sewer and manhole video inspection data
  • Underground storage tank information
  • Aboveground storage tank information

The SiteMap tool allows users to manage and customize their data according to their needs. The scalability of the SiteMap system is one way we accomplish this. As more information becomes available, the system can grow with the user. Additionally, SiteMap can export data to other systems and is built for integration. Our clients can take the uploaded information and use it on their platform of choice.

INTERCONNECTED WITH GPRS

GPRS powers SiteMap. In addition to being the nation's largest private utility locating company, GPRS collects the most comprehensive utility location information. GPRS delivers high-quality maps when performing utility locates, concrete scans, leak detection, and video pipe inspections. Clients can better manage their facilities, complete improvements, renovations, and excavate safely using these maps. Using SiteMap, facilities can manage their previously generated maps while retaining live access to those maps.

GPRS is here to provide any company, facility, or organization with the opportunity to partake in SiteMap. We’re dedicated to safety, and there’s no shortage of projects to help us reach our goal of 100% subsurface damage prevention.
