New White Paper Examines the Role of GIS in Wastewater


Introductory guide helps wastewater operators understand the benefits of geospatial data in the wastewater industry.

PITTSBURGH (PRWEB) August 09, 2018

WinCan, a worldwide leader in wastewater asset management software, has released a white paper examining the role of geographic information systems (GIS) in wastewater asset management. This paper helps wastewater system supervisors understand how GIS can improve the wastewater industry through improved data utilization, allowing for more proactive system management.

Running a safe, efficient collection system requires an in-depth understanding of both system and environmental conditions. An effective asset management program can store and organize large quantities of data, but additional tools are often required to analyze and apply this information. A GIS helps utilities understand their data easier, increasing efficiency, lowering costs and allowing them to build a proactive rehabilitation strategy.

"GIS is the infographic to your spreadsheet," says Mike Russin, General Manager for WinCan in the Americas. "It integrates with your asset management system to present data in a way that is both easy-to-understand and actionable, saving you time and money."
