Effective trail management requires accurate and up-to-date path and infrastructure information. With OTISS, your staff and volunteers can use mobile phones/tablets, to routinely and inexpensively monitor the infrastructure (signs, stiles, bridges, etc.), path condition and tree safety on and around the trail.

The OTISS approach

  • Website for managing inventory, maps and data.
  • On-site data and photo collection by staff and volunteers using phone or tablet.
  • Tailored Excel reports with charts and tables.
  • Maps and colour coded icons.
  • Online collaboration with multi-site teams and stakeholders.
Up to-date infrastructure and condition surveys leads to better trail management decisions.
