Utilities

KBM GeoSpatial has extensive experience with the acquisition and processing of utility corridor data. Our expertise and high-performance technology enable us to deliver detailed imaging, mapping, and analysis that help decision makers focus their efforts on the areas where it counts most. LiDAR data is then calibrated and classified, the imagery orthorectified, and everything is integrated into PLS-CADD models for further analysis and modeling.

We work with our clients to help them comply with NERC requirements, which involves modeling line catenaries, sag under load, tower-line attachment points, and vegetation encroachment in the corridor and its associated risk. This enables them to quickly identify and respond to unacceptable risk throughout their asset portfolio.
