Optimizing Vegetation Management Around Power Lines Using Esri Technology
Authors: Jon Anders Krokann
By using ESRI technology we have reduced our cost for vegetation management with 35 %. We experience better quality, reduced environmental impacts and less landowner complaints. By analyzing a combination of open source data and survey data captured from helicopter and UAV flights in ArcGIS Pro we create management plans that can tell us the best time for cutting the vegetation. The plans are deployed to workers using Workforce, and workers report back using Collector and Survey123.
