Geographic Data & The Living Atlas are Key to Remote Engineering

Remote telecom network engineering is all about reducing the number of engineering field visits by bringing the field to the engineer. This can reduce costs, improve designs, and accelerate time-to-market. One of the most crucial pieces to remote engineering is geographic data. In order to bring the field to the engineer, the engineer needs to have as much data and intelligence about the field as possible in order to make a calculated decision. This data might include existing or potential asset locations, like poles and power supplies, or it might be high quality aerial imagery and LiDAR data.  All of these geographic datasets that help create a Digital Twin of the real world can be collected, stored, and made available to your engineers through ArcGIS.
