In collaboration with the City of Burlington, VT, VHB designed, implemented and deployed a mobile data collection platform for a complex land use planning inventory of the urban core of the South End of Burlington Vermont. A Land Based Classification Standards (LBCS) inventory was conducted for approximately 1,400 parcels within the South End Study Area during August of 2014. Parcels inventoried were coded in accordance with the following five dimensions of the LBCS: Activity Function Structure Site Ownership To conduct the inventory, VHB developed a custom mobile data collection application and a web mapping application interface using ArcGIS Online. The mobile data collection application was implemented using ArcGIS Collector, which allowed field staff to complete the land use inventory for each parcel in the field using their mobile phones or mobile tablet devices. This workflow provided direct access to the project GIS data while in the field, and eliminated the need for any manual data entry. Additionally, the web mapping application allowed office staff to track the progress of the inventory without leaving the office. To QA/QC the land use inventory, VHB provided the City with access to the web mapping application, which allowed the City to zoom into each parcel and check the results of the inventory. If City staff found any discrepancies in the data, they were able edit the files directly.
