Inspired by a real-life problem in the agriculture world: at times during the watering process, the center pivot irrigation boom is blocking the access road to the central point, blocking off access to vehicles for maintenance. Center pivot maintenance teams need ways to get alerts when the road is blocked and un-blocked so that they can perform maintenance in a timely and efficient manner.
What it does
Our application will use an API provided by the center pivot irrigation boom and turn that into a Feature Service (using Esri Koop) that can be consumed in the platform. As part of our application we'll utilize the ArcGIS Platform (Operations Dashboard, Web AppBuilder, Portal) to visualize the information in ways that will allow customers to see the data in an easy-to-consume way. We will use ArcGIS GeoEvent Server to send alerts to the employees when the booms block or unblock a service road.
