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 the 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 the major utility.
The custom tool set created for the major utility 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 comply with CEQA requirements.
