Stringer A-Spec: Your all-in-one surveying software solution for managing A-Spec reporting

New & Improved V24 release.

Stringer A-Spec software supports the A-Spec ‘as built’ asset standards adopted by Local Councils, Utility and Water Authorities throughout Australia. Stringer A-Spec allows you to easily attribute objects in the .dwg drawing to describe ‘as built’ surveyed road, stormwater and/or open space features to meet A – Spec standard specifications.

The latest Stringer A-Spec release now includes D – Spec, R – Spec and O – Spec specifications in the one software version for data recording and reporting.

  • D-Spec: drainage assets including pipes,pits and property connections
  • R-Spec: for infrastructure assets in the road reservation including kerbing, signage, trees, lighting and car parking
  • O-Spec: for infrastructure assets in public open space and recreation reserves

Stringer A-Spec software outputs as an ESRI .shp file, in the required structure and format. You also have the option of creating an ACDC compliant file.

Stringer A-Spec software is made in Australia and is available as a 12 month Subscription. Stringer A – Spec is sold separately from Stringer Topo software and operates independently.

How does Stringer A-Spec work?

Using Stringer A-Spec software, any drawing objects in your .dwg drawing can be selected and attributed with relevant A-Spec code to represent the “as – built” condition of the features. Stringer will use the geometry directly from the object selected.

Depending on the object you select, we’ll display only the fields relevant to that object, so you only need to attribute whatever is relevant to your local council. And you have control over the fields, both what is displayed and what the attribute variables are (for example, to accommodate the different pit types at each council), so it becomes an automated process to provide the data that is required.

You can report any objects that have not been attributed as a D- Spec, R-Spec or O- Spec feature, to check if you’ve missed anything. There are tools for you to select and review any attributes you’ve assigned and to make changes. When you’re ready, the attributed drawing data can be exported to ESRI .shp file format for lodgement to your local government, utility or water authority. For organisations requiring an ACDC file, you have the option of formatting your .shp file to comply with ACDC standards.
