Enhancements to mapping features make it easier for excavators to accurately map out work areas on locate request tickets.
When using a mobile device to request a locate, system users will be able to search by Legal Land Description (LLD) location. This makes finding your place on the map much easier when entering ticket information from your phone or tablet. Search by Street address, Intersection, Grid, or XY coordinates from any device!
Mapping the Work Area
When drawing the work area on the system map, the distance will display in metres as you draw. System users can easily draw the work area to match site measurements, creating a precise work area on the locate request.
When finalizing the drawn work area, it will no longer be necessary to double click the map. If you’re on a desktop computer, simply click your first map point to complete the drawing. If you’re on a mobile device, tap ‘Finish’ at the top of the map. Finalizing your map drawing is quick and simple.
When the work area is drawn in an urban area, the address fields on the ticket will automatically populate with the address of the map drawing. This means system users can search for a nearby intersection or reference point, pan around the map to find the work site, draw the work area, and the address will already be on the ticket! The auto-generated address can be edited when necessary.
