The software was deployed with field mapping teams on Trimble T10 tablets with Trimble R2 GNSS receivers. (RFP) for the next phase. The goal is to continue to digitize existing records, ground-truth these via field mapping, and perform new mapping with high-precision GNSS paired with user-friendly mobile apps. A web portal then serves up these updated GIS datasets for the entire enterprise. This first GNSS field mapping phase for Port NOLA demonstrated that field mapping is a cost-effective alternative to legacy—often incomplete and inaccurate— records conversions. No matter how much legacy data is available, sometimes the only way to be sure of an asset is to field-locate, verify and update.
