Using ArcGIS Field Maps app, NextGen Cruiser is a platform built on ArcGIS that streamlines the process of designing and executing timber cruises. With workflows that extend from back-office cruise design to offline available data collection in the field, it is a powerful tool that not only allows for cruise-designing and offline mobile data collection, but additionally validates cruises, calculates, and reports results.
From the desktop interface, users can add custom reference layers to aid in cruise design, choose from different basemaps, and import or draw polygons to design cruises. Once the areas of choice are defined, our application will automatically create a well-distributed grid of plots to ensure accurate sample collection.
Field workers use ArcGIS Field Maps to gather data from those plots. Through symbolized buffer zones, workers can easily tell when they are within the required distance of each plot, even when offline. When the cruise is complete, data from ArcGIS Field Maps syncs with the back office where it is validated. Analysts can then generate volume reports to facilitate crucial decisions.
