BRC’s geographic information systems group is integral in producing synoptic products to depict and calculate survey requirements based on real world environmental variables. Survey area orientation and survey data collection are carefully developed and managed by our GIS specialists using spatial data technologies to support rapid group interaction and reporting. These mapping and analytical products are included in both technical reporting and project management activities.

BRC’s  Real-time Analytics Project Tracking and Reporting mobile data collection system (“RAPTR”) supports real time survey controls and reporting to provide close monitoring of project activities. Based on mobile GPS and cloud computing technologies, our field teams are employing leading edge field data collection subsystems to provide streamlined survey products, real time reporting, and high resolution mapping to our clients.

The RAPTR system collects valuable geospatial data on iOS, Android, Windows (Phone/tablet) to visualize and share GeoSpatial data. RAPTR manages field data collection, assigns tasks to field staff, and monitors collection activity to coordinate efficient and comprehensive surveys. RAPTR captures photos and videos with synchronized GPS location data to streamline office data processing and data entry.

RAPTR channels spatial data generated during multiple studies across the organization into one system for mapping, spatial analysis, and project budget controls. RAPTR provides our staff, field survey teams, project managers, and company executives with timely accurate information to coordinate project administration, client collaboration, plus useful and effective communication of results designed to fit seamlessly into our client’s final deliverables.

RAPTR – Real-time Analytics Project Tracking and Reporting Mobile Data Collection System

TargetRAPTR enables any mobile device to be a field collection unit by harnessing the phone or tablet’s functionality for data input, GPS positioning, and photo collection.


icon-title-office_BRC2Supports real-time survey Monitoring, controls, and reporting to provide close monitoring of project activities. Synced data is updated in real-time and can be embedded and viewed in your web browser, Google Earth, ArcGIS, and more.


icon-field-collect_BRC2Rapid Reporting: Data Collected in the field is synced with the cloud and is ready to download to report ready data formats. RAPTR supports a simple export for the USFW Desert Tortoise Survey reporting. This is possible through the one-to-many data collection schema.

Many Points can be collected under one header. These points share the common header attribution to allow for easy data collection and report integration.
