FieldSeeker Invasive Plants

Field and office tools for workflows associated with plant occurrence and assessment, bio-release, treatments and service requests.

FieldSeeker Invasive Plants is a cloud-based system leveraging the Esri® ArcGIS® Online or ArcGIS Enterprise platform to provide users with simple, intuitive tools for mapping and reporting data related to invasive plant control activities. Field and office users benefit from seeing a common up-to-date picture of their operations. Data is centrally located so it may be shared, analyzed, or updated throughout an organization.

FieldSeeker Invasive Plants, an all-in-one app, includes tools for Plant Occurrences, Plant Assessments, Bio-release, Mechanical and Chemical Treatment, and Service Request workflows. The cross-platform mobile app is easily deployed through the Apple Store, Google Play Store, and Windows Store and supports real-time connectivity with off-line editing capabilities.

Why the Esri Platform?

The Esri ArcGIS Online platform offers cost savings over legacy server systems and allows multiple users to use the system anywhere, anytime.

Esri keeps up with advances in the Geospatial Cloud technology while Frontier takes care of the development of the invasive plant control workflows. Together we deliver a powerful solution so organizations are free to focus on important control activities.

 

Value of the Esri platform includes:
  • ArcGIS is a scalable system to expand as needs grow and change.
  • ArcGIS Online continually earns security and privacy certifications.
  • ArcGIS lends configuration and data editing flexibility of the FieldSeeker apps.
  • ArcGIS Online provides additional data visualization and data sharing options with FieldSeeker data.
  • Customer maintains full ownership and control of maps and data.

Frontier GIS Professional Services

Frontier Precision’s GIS services group can offer innovative ideas extending other ArcGIS Online apps alongside the FieldSeeker GIS invasive plant control workflows. We can help organizations achieve goals through focused consulting, configuration, implementation, training and technical support services.

Examples of extending the ArcGIS Online platform:

 

  • Integrating Service Request GeoForms or Survey123 Webforms with your external website, which allow the public to report on invasive plant control activity in their area.

  • Activity Status Web Maps can be utilized in a variety of applications to relay information to the public including: recent aerial or ground spraying activities, open service requests, or plant occurrences.

  • Email Notification and Service Request Routing system can be used to increase staff efficiency allowing more time spent on control measures while keeping residents more informed during the process.
