Developing a Tech-Savvy Summit

Technology played a primary role in development of the Summit Bechtel Reserve. Since the Summit’s inception, the need for development and integration of a project-wide standard Geographic Information System (GIS) platform was a primary focus. Trinity Works has managed and maintained all data associated with site design and critical infrastructure, ranging from valves and fire hydrants to regional issues associated with watershed planning and sustainable development. Building a GIS from the ground-up is no small task, which is why Trinity Works worked with ESRI to ensure that best technology strategy and practices.

Trinity Works began the process by establishing both internal and external goals. This meant understanding data management and how GIS could become a platform to support various disciplines across the project during design, development, construction and programming for the National Jamboree. Trinity Works took an enterprise approach to GIS, facilitating coordination and flexibility.

Trinity Works retained Tuck Mapping Solutions, Inc. and Fugro Earth Data, Inc. to develop detailed LiDAR mapping, aerial imagery and planimetrics for the site in order to establish a base from which planners, designers, contractors and partners could make informed decisions. This data, combined with information developed from the work of hundreds of consultants and contractors, makes-up the Summit Bechtel Reserve's GIS platform.

Now, if you’re not a data or GIS junkie, this may not sound all that interesting. However, this process enabled Trinity Works to expand the Summit’s GIS offerings beyond construction and into the hands of the site's users through web and mobile applications.
