Proposed Water Design Overview

The Proposed Water Design solution can be used by water engineers and developers to quickly sketch in proposed or early stage water infrastructure projects using Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS. To simplify the sketching process, the designer selects valid sketch types from a predefined list.

The designs created in the Proposed Water Design app can then be shared with the utility's ArcGIS organization to increase collaboration on early stage or proposed projects.
