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 images of damages from a mobile device. With damages collected in the field, managers and other office staff can view the scope of damage and impacts on the gas network in real time.

The Damage Assessment Collector is a configuration of ArcGIS. Once configured, the Damage Assessment Collector can be accessed by field crews using the Collector for ArcGIS app. This allows field crews to collect damage information regardless of connectivity to the office network.
