San Diego-based Groundskeeper Tech (GT) released a new mapping software, SprinklerMaps.
Working as head groundskeeper at the University of California, GT Founder Mike D’Ascanio grew frustrated with printed-paper landscape maps, which were routinely outdated, inaccurate or flat-out inaccessible, and began developing SprinklerMaps.
As an alternative to paper landscape maps, SprinklerMaps gives users the ability to plot their irrigation and utility systems with pinpoint precision on a live satellite map, transforming an iPad into a practical tool for athletic field managers. Additional features include a square footage estimator, Sprinkler Radius Viewer, GPM tallies and the ability to flag markers for repair.
Among industry leaders embracing the technology are major universities, golf courses and several professional sports teams including an English Premier League soccer team.
“This is really only the beginning of what we have planned,” D’Ascanio says. “SprinklerMaps is a solid foundation we will continue to build on. We look forward to working further with our colleagues developing technology solutions for landscape maintenance that improve results, while saving time and money.”
