Playing Around with the PinPoint Survey Application using Amazon Data
We put together a quick demo of the PinPoint Survey Application using some public data scraped from the web for all the US Amazon sites. The equipment names and photos are all generated, so don’t get too excited about thinking there are real Amazon security equipment details being posted on the web.
Some of the reporting features are turned off, but the overall objective was to show off the speed and utility of the site data and geospatial mapping capabilities for relating sites and equipment within those sites.
Using the application from a tablet, you can use the built-in GPS to map the device lat/lon data to the database, along with any photos, notes, and punch list information that might be relevant. This is particularly useful for large external sites like ports, refineries, mines/quarries, or power generation/transmission facilities.
