Aquire - Asset Mapping Software
Aquire™ is an asset mapping solution for collecting GPS locations of water meters in the field. It runs on Trimble GeoExplorer-series handhelds, with support for attached laser range-finders. Being a sibling application of our AquaRead™ meter reading solution, it utilises two-way wireless communication between the water authority’s server and the handheld device. This allows the operator to walk the standard meter reading round, collect GPS coordinates of each meter, and transmit that information back to the AquaRate™ system server while still in the field.
With Trimble’s data correction, the system records positions with 10cm accuracy. This provides highly accurate location information that can help water authorities with those hard to find meters, and enhances the quality of the GIS data, optionally providing support for installing a wireless fixed network for automatic and remote reading of water meters.
