Banning is in the business of helping clients meet their utility, facility, and economic development needs. GIS plays a strong role in solving problems internal to the organization. This same data can often be leveraged to promote, educate, and engage the public. Banning provides services to host web-based maps, story maps, and even customized mobile apps for a variety of case uses.
At Banning, we are committed to developing a solution that works best for your organization. Are you looking for a way to leverage your staff to collect utility data? Banning provides services to set up your map templates, guide you on hardware, train your staff for efficient and accurate collection, and provide GIS support and hosting. This approach is most effective in creating excellent maps even when budgets are limited.
Having an accurate system map empowers the utility manager to make data-driven decisions. With data like pipe age, material, and size a water utility manager can start planning a pipe replacement program. This approach is common but does not tell the whole story. Banning engineers can use the GIS system data to quickly create a hydraulic model. The hydraulic model is a powerful tool to show current system deficiencies as well as performance under future development flows. This data allows the manager to make pinpoint improvements for the largest system benefit. The resulting data, mapped in the GIS system, is a powerful visual to graphically show the short and long-term capital improvement plan for your utility.
Have you ever had a late-night main break, but can’t find the shut-off valves? Is your senior operator about to move on or retire? Afraid his 30 years of system knowledge will go with him? These are two common examples of problems utility managers face. The solution has never been easier or more affordable. Mobile GIS mapping technology can revolutionize the way you run your utility. Banning offers map setup, training, GIS support and hosting services for a wide variety of utilities including Water, Wastewater, Storm, Gas and Electric. Using the latest in cloud-based Esri® Collector mapping technology, let Banning show you how we can:
Facility managers can bring the park inventory struggle to an end by creating an interactive park inventory map. Feature like benches, playground equipment, or trash receptacles can be located, assessed for condition and photographed. Adding a layer for an ADA accessibility assessment or for planning a long-term park improvement schedule can be very powerful. These internal management tools can also be adapted to provide park information outside your organization to the community. Story maps are a powerful way to educate and encourage park use.
Are you ready to get serious about managing your street network? Since 2016, the Community Crossings Matching Grant through INDOT has required an asset management plan. Banning can create an interactive map of your street network with each segment color coded by PASER Pavement rating. More powerful yet, showing multiple years of PASER data can show deterioration trends. With this data, you can create a long-term capital improvement plan with a powerful visual to show the public and elected officials.
Are you looking to give your community a competitive edge? Draw attention from site selectors with the latest in interactive web maps, drone fly-over videos and 3D renderings for your developing community. Banning can help create a web-based experience to highlight key features developers are looking for like available utilities, proximity to transportation routes, and topography of the site.
