Closing Time: January 24th, 2022, before 8:30 am PST
Contact: Joanne Neilson email@example.com
The Fraser Valley Conservancy, hereinafter referred to as “FVC”, is seeking proposals from contractors to create an ArcGIS field data collection tool. This tool will include forms, maps, and shapefiles to be used by staff collecting data during environmental conservation projects across the Fraser Valley. Specifications for this tool are outlined in this Request for Proposal (RFP).
Background and Context
The FVC engages in a variety of environmental conservation projects requiring efficient, reliable, and concise data collection.
Two core tasks that require digital data collection tools include: (1) mapping habitat features, and (2) recording observations of species or features. These tasks would benefit from the ability to view the location of the surveyor and collected data points over ortho-imagery in real-time.
Staff members carry Apple iPads in the field. These iPads are primarily used for the FileMaker Pro database tool and for taking photos. Some of the iPads have cellular capability, but others do not. The intent is to create a versatile digital notebook that can be used with or without cellular connectivity, depending on the task and the needs of the project.
To create a data collection tool utilizing the appropriate ArcGIS Field App, pre-loaded shapefiles, fillable data forms, and instructions for staff use. This tool will allow the FVC staff to easily collect data in the field and effectively download and use the data in their conservation project reporting.
Scope of Work
The contractor will be required to work closely with a FVC staff person throughout the contract term. This FVC point person will check in on the process regularly, answer questions, and guide development. A prototype will be submitted for testing and refinement before the final product is created and accepted.
