The need to accurately document and map the OSP systems in their entirety has not just become the norm, but a necessity in keeping your operation running proficiently. As new systems are acquired or old systems begin to be documented there are several benefits to using GPS locationing in conjunction with conventional walkout practices.
Provides a precise coordinate location for utility boxes, peds, vaults, and poles.
Allows for more accurate drafting of the distances and angles between each structure
Eliminates the guess work or inaccuracies caused by misinterpretation of hand drawings
Can be used to quickly locate and identify specific structures in the field
Capable of storing specific data with each GPS coordinate such as pole tag, pole type, and other specific detail at each location
