GIS Based Asset Management Software
GIS-Mo will replace CRAB's nearly fifteen-year-old, in-house developed, Mobility© software with a Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) software solution. GIS-Mo will provide the 39 Washington State counties an affordable, state-of-the-art, asset management system, which facilitates the preservation and enhancement of our county road transportation infrastructure.
GIS-Mo will promote collaboration and efficiency by incorporating geospatial data, supporting mobile devices, with or without, an internet connection, and integrating with systems at the local and state level. GIS-Mo is the next evolution of CRAB technology, assisting county road departments in providing safe and efficient movement of people and goods over county roads.
County users will begin using GIS-Mo for editing Road Log and other inventory data on or about January 1, 2021.
2020 Road Log Update
Each county shall be responsible for maintaining current information regarding its Road Log in Mobility and, no later than May 1, 2020, shall submit an updated Road Log for its complete road system with all data elements as of December 31, 2019.
2021 Road Log Update
Each county shall be responsible for maintaining current Road Log information in Mobility and, no later than May 1, 2021, shall submit an updated Road Log for its complete road system with all data elements as of December 31, 2020. Once a county submits their Road Log all control field updates will still be subjected to review, approval, and validation by the County Road Administration Board. Upon certification, CRAB staff will notify the Road Log Manager and issue GIS-Mo user credentials so that they can start making the necessary Road Log and other inventories changes in GIS-Mo.
2022 Road Log Update
Each county shall be responsible for maintaining current information regarding its Road Log in GIS-Mo and, no later than May 1, 2022, shall submit an updated Road Log for its complete road system with all data elements as of December 31, 2021.
GIS-Mo county user training began in November, 2019. Training priority goes to each county's Road Log Manager and one power user chosen by the county (2 staff per county until all 39 counties have attended GIS-Mo training). Users are required to take a VUEWorks 101 prerequisite class online before attending. See training schedule on the training registration page.
GIS-Mo Compatible Devices
GIS-Mo offers many ways to access and manipulate your data. On a laptop, like a Microsoft Surface, you will be able to use the main VUEWorks and Roads and Highways programs to access full control of your data. Instead of using SignRate like in Mobility, on an Android or IOS device, you can use Mobile VUE to collect asset data in the field.
We have plenty of resources for you to choose from. GIS-Mo support is available by phone, email, and remote session. Submit a support ticket and view knowledge base articles in "CRAB-NET" our online helpdesk. CRAB'S Learning Management System (LMS) launches this fall. The LMS will include quick reference and how-to videos for GIS-Mo.
