Impact Analysis Overview

Impact Analysis can be used by utility staff to identify the impact of an incident, such as a wind storm, on infrastructure. Utilities can also use it as a planning tool to analyze and understand potential outages, safety concerns, and restoration cost.

Impact Analysis is a configuration of Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS that can be used to analyze the impact to electric facilities within an incident area. The incident can be saved as a feature service and the summarizations of assets can be exported to a CSV. This analysis can then be shared to best prepare for the incident.


Impact Analysis requires specific technical experience and software.
