Traditional pen and paper field inspections and inventories require a large amount of back office support. Inspectors and mappers complete their paper inspection forms while in the field and then the gathered information is entered into a filing system back at the office. This file process often includes transcribing the inspection form into digital format, associating photography with specific inspections, and organizing the results for follow up actions. In addition this type of field inspection and inventory processes often yield non-uniform results, are labor intensive, and are susceptible to error.
