•
Decision Makers – Plant Health Officers
-
Identify new and emerging risks
-
Develop biosecurity strategy
-
Gather evidence and commission research
First Line of Defence - Plant Health Inspectors (PHSI)
-
Inspections at ports/airports
-
Regular field inspections
-
Plant passports for exporters

Risks to UK Plant Health
•
UK Plant Health Risk Register
•
742 Plant pest/disease risks identified
Key Pests/Diseases
•
•
•
•
•
•
Phytopthora sp.
Emerald Ash Borer
Potato Ring Rot
Ash Die Back
Asian Longhorn Beetle
Pine/Oak
Processionary Moth
PHSI monitor plant health in England and Wales against
pests and disease
Manual Data Collection Workflow
•
OFFICE
FIELD
Print out paper
Manually record:
maps/supporting • Inspection data
info
• Photo numbers
•
Location
-
•
GPS coordinates
grid references
field names
OFFICE
• Re-record
inspection data
into eDomero
•
Download photo
files
•
Record/plot
coordinates
Method is inefficient, repetitive and prone to error
Mobile Inspection Data Capture Pilot
Aims:
•
Identify mobile GIS capabilities of software already
available to the organisation
•
Minimise need for new systems and bespoke development
•
Mobile data model based on the current recording system
for inspection data
Mobile GIS Software
•
Use existing Esri software available to PHSI/Fera under our
Enterprise Licence Agreement with Esri
Windows Mobile

iOS
Trimble Juno GPS
•
ArcGIS For Windows

Developing a Mobile Solution
•
Database model consistent with fields from current
electronic recording system
•
Use of subtypes and domains to ensure data integrity and
efficient collection out in the field
•
Subtypes and domain coded values identical to those
used in the electronic recording system
•
Mandatory fields to ensure validity of collected records

Findings and future work
•
Data model was able to collect data in a format compatible
with the current electronic recording system
•
Range of software options available allows users to select
what’s right for them
•
Trimble GPS devices provided suitable accuracies to
monitor plant health pest and disease outbreaks
•
iPads GPS accuracy varied - Look to investigate use with
external GPS receivers
Benefits of using mobile GIS for Inspectors
•
Improves efficiency and accuracy of field operations
•
Provides rapid data collection and real time mapping
•
Replaces paper-based workflows and duplicate recording
•
Take information in and out of the field
Web Mapping to Support Plant Health Policy
•
•
Advantages of webmaps
-
People love maps
-
Interactive interrogation of data
-
Updated with current information
Requirements for government
-
Data must be valid
-
Must adhere to data protection guidelines

Mapping Plant Health Risks from Imports
•
Aim
-
•
To make more use of data stored on inspections
Objectives
-
Map the origin of imports which have been found to have a
pest or disease
-
Display trends in risk from interceptions
-
Link to other sources of plant health information
