Among the many regulatory programs in which those organizations within the Utilities industry must participate, Vegetation Management Programs (VMP) are the fastest growing. Those teams responsible for Right-of-Way (RoW) management need a quick and reliable way to determine the areas on which to focus the most attention as well as ensure the results of this analysis may be easily reported and understood by their colleagues and constituents.
The Integrated Forte application is designed to aid in this process, providing solutions for companies to both run and maintain their VMP while still adhering to those regulations administered by the NERC and other bodies. Employed as an Add-In for ArcMap, it is highly customizable to account for these regulations and restrictions. The tools available within this solution allow for easily processing and analyzing LiDAR data to determine dangerous vegetation in the RoW, while also facilitating the recording of these areas by creating reports and generating map books.
