The project goal was to created GIS based tools and geodatabases to identify overhead poles with Natural and Cultural constraints. PanGIS developed an ESRI based Geodatabase that contains all of SDG&E’s overhead poles that are routinely pole brushed and inspected each year and their environmental constraints and sensitivities.  PanGIS created a custom ESRI based GIS interface and tool set for SDG&E.

The custom tool set created for SDG&E will alert environmental personnel and vegetation management about resources of concern by flagging areas that have cultural and natural resource avoidances, or concerns.  These custom tools help SDG&E comply with CEQA requirements.
