/// Down to the Shore: New Jersey American Water Maps a Million Assets with Sub-Inch Accuracy
When Hurricane Sandy transformed New Jersey, Chris Kahn saw the difference having a high-accuracy map makes: “In Mantoloking, it could take hours to days to find one service line under the rubble. In Ortley Beach, it took a few seconds.” That difference in location accuracy helped prompt New Jersey American Water to map over a million individual assets with sub-inch accuracy in a journey that took years. The effort paid off. Today, the utility estimates it’s saving $2.6M/year thanks to accurate maps.

Urban forests can be a boon to municipalities economically, socially, and environmentally. But their upkeep requires having an accurate record. To better understand its urban forestry inventory, the City of Austin Public Works staff hired Halff Associates to perform a complete survey. See how they phased out the project and the results they are reaping today >
