Damage Assessment

In the event of a natural disaster, the Damage Assessment Collector solution can be used by field crews to record the location, severity, and photos of damages from a mobile device. Once damages are collected from the field, managers and other office staff can view the scope of damage and impacts on the electric network in real time.

The Damage Assessment Collector is a configuration of ArcGIS. Once configured, the Damage Assessment Collector can be used to collect damages using the Collector for ArcGIS app on a mobile device.
