Case Study: California Utility Vegetation Management
Much of the utility industry is regulated by local, state, and federal regulations. Organizations often struggle to stay up to date with inspecting their assets and any encroaching vegetation. It’s especially important to have this data both prior to and following a hazardous event (pre- and post-remediation).
In early 2019, one of Cyclomedia’s clients encountered a similar situation with high-risk fire zones in California. Our client required a quick and efficient method to visualize assets and encroaching vegetation from their desks, a way to QA/QC post-remediation efforts, and a map of geospatial-relative analyses.
To date, Cyclomedia has been able to collect over 25,000 miles of data with the fastest delivery cycle time in the industry and an average positional accuracy of 10cm. We continue to work with our clients to get the data in their hands in an even shorter timeframe. Cyclomedia’s collection method can save our clients approximately 30-40% of what they would spend on a traditional, boots-on-the-ground inspection.
