PointMan® is a patented mobile software application that enables field personnel to capture precise asset location data from a mobile device. PointMan is designed to capture precision location of assets and metadata associated to those assets. This data includes the type, condition and the precise location of buried assets. PointMan also creates, captures, and binds forms, sketches and photos to any point, line or polygon. PointMan dramatically improves data collection, asset management and field-to-office communications.
Snap To Point in the Field GIS data rarely lines up with the real-world location of a utility line. This type of issue is especially common in the construction industry....
“A simple to use platform, with advanced features, that solve complex problems within the DOT ecosystem for subsurface utilities.”

Mobile Data Collection
Being mobile enables field workers to easily collect, access and visualize information including the type, condition and precise location of assets. This means critical data is readily available when and where it is most needed, which is often on the project site. Being mobile also means that project data is digitally captured and recorded to ensure both project requirements and regulatory standards are achieved.
Seamlessly Pairs with External GPS/GNSS Receivers
Often organizations have unique requirements when it comes to quality levels ranging from mapping grade to Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) standards. PointMan leverages the internal GPS embedded in the mobile devices to capture geospatial location data. When higher levels of precision are required, PointMan is designed to integrate to external GPS/GNSS and RTK receivers including Trimble, BlueStarGPS, Emlid and Geode.
Designed to Work Offline
Working in the field can often mean working on project sites located in remote areas where cell service can be poor or simply unavailable. PointMan is designed to address these conditions and to work offline. Now you can provide immediate and measurable value anytime and anywhere with the highest level of confidence.
Compatible with All Major Cable & Pipe Locators
PointMan is designed to integrate with all major manufacturers’ EM locate tools including Radiodetection, Subsite and Vivax Metrotech. This means, you can now electronically capture and record the precise geospatial location of the underground utility and supporting meta-data by simply pairing the EM locate tool to your mobile device.
Meets Industry Data Quality Standards
Now you can easily meet industry mapping standards using PointMan. PointMan’s patented Precision & Pedigree data collection processes are designed to meet Subsurface Utility Engineering mapping requirements and comply with US as well as international mapping standards including ASCE 38-02 and CSA S-250-11.
Capture and Sync Data in Real-Time
PointMan provides real-time communication between the office and the field. This means that as data is being captured and stored by field personnel, it is immediately available to other office and field personnel to quality assure the data, identify any potential discrepancies and make more timely and informed business decisions.
