Utility vegetation managers have to make decisions that impact their service territories. For this, you need to incorporate into your decision processes multiple categories of information that have a high spatial and temporal granularity. Leveraging high-resolution satellite and aerial imagery, artificial intelligence (AI) and geospatial analysis, you could rapidly and accurately identify and assess vegetation with frequency — across your entire distribution and transmission territory — in a cost-effective way that wasn’t even imaginable a few years ago. Then, those insights are turned into actionable work to deliver on the promise of business value and help you more easily identify critical corridors, understand actions to be undertaken and rank them according their urgency, criticality or related risk.
