Project Goal

This was a collection of smaller solutions provided through a single ArcGIS allowing data ownership and maintenance across many departments.
Wildfire Mitigation – The GIS and a mix of geospatial technologies were used to determine risk, monitor daily situational awareness, track mitigation efforts and compose response activities.
Operational Efficiencies – The GIS is used to plan and track progress of cyclical maintenance programs including vegetation management, pole testing, and line inspections (UAV and ground).
Equipment Maintenance – Ad-hoc equipment maintenance and asset tracking is completed with the same operational maps.
Regulatory – CORE’s locate contractor is provided the same operational web maps resulting in more accurate dig locates.
Collaboration – The same GIS platform products are shared with design and construction contractors as well as governmental agency partners.
