Light Pole Inventory and Assessment Using ArcGIS Collector
Track: Public Works
Authors: Scott Wolfskill
Following the failure of several public area light poles, an inventory and structural integrity assessment was deemed necessary by the City of Carlsbad, CA. Using ArcGIS Collector for field data collection, ~800 light poles were examined and rated by a structural engineer. Several were reported as critical for imminent failure and the city responded by immediately placing protective barriers around them. This project demonstrates the use of GIS as a tool for collaboration across disciplines.
