Electric Power Transmission - Vegetation Management
Aerotec has combined LIDAR accuracy (measurement) with digital photography (interpretation) to support vegetation management. A comprehensive inventory of offending vegetation is produced according to the customer’s prescribed conductor operating conditions and vegetation clearance criteria. Aerotec’s objective is to take the guesswork (estimation) out of right-of-way management (e.g., provide a measurable and verifiable approach). The customer’s objective is to make better use of funds and increase the reliability and integrity of the transmission grid.

Aerotec's ROW aerial mapping products allow utilities to:

  • Detect hazard/danger-trees (inside and outside the right-of-way)
  • Document the location and size of offending vegetation clusters
  • Formulate a plan of action (treatment prescription)
  • Share and communicate planning and/or task management information with others
  • Manage the work

Maintain treatment records for work management effectiveness assessment and/or environmental stewardship purposes

Aerotec's multi-media ROW vegetation management tool offers new opportunities to:

  • Re-use data captured for engineering modeling activities for other applications (e.g., capture the data once and use it over and over again)
  • Take the guesswork out of identifying/locating hazard/danger trees
  • Improve efficiency and effectiveness of current ROW management operations
  • Measurably improve system reliability and the “bottom line” for Aerotec’s customer


Customers have the opportunity to extract additional value from all of Aerotec’s airborne data. All of the data is GIS-compatible, and customers can take all of their violation inventory results to the field using Aerotec's TopGunVeg Tool.
