Excavation Damages

As required by DOT annual reports, utilities must report any excavation damages to the gas distribution network. The Excavation Damage Collector can be used in the Collector for ArcGIS application by field crews to collect excavation damage locations, information, and photos of the damage. This map can be updated regardless of connectivity to the office network assuming cellular coverage is available or offline editing is enabled.
