Excavation Damages

Despite call before you dig programs, gas utilities face the challenge of dealing with damages to assets during excavation. These excavation damages must be recorded for any on 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.
