GIS Application for Compliance Inspection Management
Yuma County ITS GIS utilized a GIS Platform (ArcGIS) to develop a management software solution to improve the accuracy and efficiency of data collection and compliance reporting for the Smoke Free Arizona Program. The Smoke Free Arizona Act was passed by Arizona voters as an effort to limit exposure to second hand smoke. The law allows for a few exceptions, but as a rule prohibits smoking within 20 feet of entrances, open windows, ventilation systems and most enclosed public places as well as places as employments. The Yuma County Health District, was seeking a GIS solution that allowed them to map inspected sites and keep records of sites visited throughout fiscal years. The project priorities included the following: create point locations to visualize data, create electronic forms, store data in secure environment, ability to transmit data quickly and securely and have the ability to generate reports. Yuma County ITS GIS staff utilized ESRI's Survey123 to develop a management software solution to improve the accuracy and efficiency of data collection and compliance reporting for the Smoke Free Arizona Program.
