Date & Time:
The Mapping Small Water Systems with Freee Google Earth Pro Desktop training will be held on the following date and time:

April 10 10:00AM-12:00PM 


This training is being held in Pacific Time.

For a water utility, asset management plays a significant role in overall financial performance. With the use of effective asset management, it is possible to reduce overall infrastructure costs instead of waiting until the assets fail, incurring higher than necessary costs. Mapping a water system’s assets can greatly assist with developing an asset management plan and your ability to locate assets during an emergency.


Participants will receive a step-by-step tutorial on how to get started mapping their water system’s assets using Google Earth Pro for project planning, public presentations and developing capital improvement plans.

Participants will learn:

·      The basic tools of Google Earth needed to map water system assets

·       How to import scanned maps and handheld GPS coordinates

·       How to derive water main pipe lengths, project planning, and cost estimating

·       How to edit, save, and share your Google Earth maps with project team members and the public

The recommended audience includes operators, managers and board members who make future water treatment decisions.

This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
