FieldSeeker Core

Field and office tools for workflows associated with Larviciding with storm drain treatments. Surveillance and Service Request

FieldSeeker Core is a cloud-based system leveraging the Esri® ArcGIS® Online or ArcGIS Enterprise platform to provide users with simple, intuitive tools for mapping, collecting and reporting data related to mosquito 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 Core, an all-in-one app, includes tools for Larviciding with storm drain treatments, Surveillance and Services 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. The FieldSeeker Core office suite is a Web app based on the Esri JavaScript API. There is nothing to install, access using any web browser. Since FieldSeeker Core is based on the industry standard Esri platform, the organization maintains full control and ownership of maps and data.

  • Optional VectorSurv Gateway Integration
  • Reporting and Data Search/Filter/Query and Review Options

Optional VectorSurv Gateway Integration for FieldSeeker Core

What started as the CalSurv Gateway in California is now known as the Vectorborne Disease Surveillance System, or VectorSurv. The system now serves California, Utah, New Jersey, Arizona, Hawaii, North Carolina, Tennessee, and the U.S. Territory of Guam with other states looking to adopt the system. Participating agencies use the VectorSurv Gateway to track, analyze, and share disease surveillance data for adult mosquito trapping, pooling, and testing; blood, tissue, or specimen samples (such as sentinel chicken blood samples and dead birds); and control efforts such as application treatments on larval sources.

FieldSeeker Core also supports collection and entry of all the same surveillance data, which is used in conjunction with other operational data to facilitate decision making and effective mosquito control activities. Because the same data needs to exist in each system for different reasons, FieldSeeker Core and VectorSurv have been integrated so that data can be synced in both directions eliminating double entry of voluminous lab data required for surveillance.

FieldSeeker Windows ULV Adulticiding Extension

Field and Office Tools for Recording Adulticiding Activities

FieldSeeker Windows ULV Adulticiding Extension is an end-to-end system for managing and reporting adulticiding activities. It is a standalone system consisting of a Windows 10 desktop office application and Windows 10 field collection application.

 

FieldSeeker Windows ULV Adulticiding Extension is built on Open GIS technology. Esri licensing is not required for standard operation but can be leveraged for advanced functionality and syncing data with FieldSeeker Core software. Spray session data is recorded by the FieldSeeker Windows ULV mobile app and stored in the Windows 10 mobile device. Mobile data is synchronized with the office using online storage services such as Google Drive or Dropbox, to a shared folder through Wi-Fi, or using removable USB storage.

Frontier Public Notification App

Public Outreach Tool

Frontier’s Public Notification app is a public outreach tool designed to facilitate communication between members of the public and mosquito and vector control and public health agencies. It consists of a mosquito and vector control agency branded mobile app for iOS and Android devices and a Web app for agency admins to manage information and notifications pushed to the public mobile app.

Public mobile users can download the free mobile app from the app stores and subscribe to receive notifications for selected areas of interest, to submit service requests, and to view activity status maps. The mobile app will receive push notifications based on the user’s subscription preferences.

Agency personnel use the Web app to manage news and updates, notification messages, notification “zones” or areas, and other system settings.

Public Notification Mobile App
  • Free Public Mobile App Available from Apple Store or Google Play Store
  • Public User Subscribes to Notifications for Selected Area of Interest
  • Public User Views Activity Status Map Information Provided by Agency
  • Public User Enters Service Requests
Public Notification Admin Web App
  • Agency Personnel Manages News and Notifications pushed to Public Mobile App and User Subscriber List
  • Agency Personnel Manages Status Maps and Area of Interests using Esri ArcGIS Online

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 mosquito and vector 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 Core apps.
  • ArcGIS Online provides additional data visualization and data sharing options with FieldSeeker Core 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 mosquito 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 mosquito 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, field inspections, open service requests, or the latest trap results or landing counts.

  • 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.

Mobile Devices

For Reliable Data Collection

FieldSeeker Core is an all-in-one app including tools for Larviciding with storm drain treatments, Surveillance and Services Request workflows. It is a cross-platform mobile app deployed through the Apple Store, Google Play Store, and Windows Store.

The FieldSeeker Windows ULV Adulticiding mobile app is only compatible with Windows 10 tablets. Compatible sprayers output data using a 9-pin RS-232 serial connection which is only supported by Windows 10 tablets with serial connections built in.

In general, any professional, late model field device, phone, or tablet that has reliable GPS and meets minimum specifications can be used. Our approach is to list devices which have been tested and are known to support the FieldSeeker Core and ULV software. For a full list of devices, contact: Mosquito Support.
