Are you a state, regional, county, or municipal government working on that next field data collection project and need some funding? Why not enter the ESRI and Leica Smart Communities Innovation Challenge and win some hardware and software for your project!
The Smart Communities Innovation Challenge is an open call for demonstration projects that supports bringing ground-breaking ideas of state and local government to reality.
The goal of the program is to foster transformational approaches to improving the productivity and efficiency of mobile field workers in all government disciplines. This program recognizes that enterprises may have particular field data collection challenges that smartphones cannot ideally meet. Projects are required to validate the value of combining geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning system (GPS) technologies for data collection, optimizing workloads, and providing real time information that supports field mobility. Reviewers will look for ideas that support complete mobile workflows, using ESRI and Leica hardware and software, that extend to back-office processes such as operational dashboard. The challenge is open to governments in the United States only.
