Utility companies require precise mapping and field data collection services. If you’re responding to outages, managing maintenance, and repair of the power pole and pipeline inventories, providing maps of gas lines, electric distribution grids or water, and wastewater pipelines – you need to know exactly where everything is, now and for the future with utility mapping.
The challenge for telecoms and utility companies is to map, model, manage and maintain their distribution facilities and networks optimally to meet new customer expectations and industry compliance regulations. It’s not uncommon that utilities are still relying on inaccurate paper maps, hand-drawn notes or worker recollection on where assets as crucial as water or gas mains, valves or hydrants are located. Repair and replace utility lines more efficiently and realize ROI quickly in an investment in utility mapping services.
