The Inlet Inspection solution modernizes the inlet inspection workflow by using a map on a smartphone or tablet device. By using a map view of stormwater inlet, field crews are able inspect inlets on any mobile device using the inlet inspection schema. These inspection are then seamlessly submitted to the office.

The Inlet Inspection solution is a configuration of ArcGIS. Once configured, the Inlet Inspection map can be accessed by field crews using the Collector for ArcGIS application. This allows field crews to collect inspection information regardless of connectivity to the office network, assuming cellular coverage is available.
