Valve Inspection Overview

The Valve Exercising solution modernizes the paper report for valve inspection and exercising information by using a map and exercising layer on a smartphone or tablet device. By using a map view of system valves, field crews are able to record valve exercising activities using the valve exercising schema.

Valve Exercising is a configuration of ArcGIS. Once deployed, field crews can access the Valve Exercising map using the Collector for ArcGIS application. This allows field crews to collect information regardless of connectivity to the office network assuming cellular coverage is available.


Valve Exercising requires specific technical experience and software.
