TerraFlow Pole Mapper

Enables utility pole engineering teams to gather information about their overhead world and integrate it with other business systems such as their Geographic Information System and / or Enterprise Asset Management System.

Capture your locate information accurately, the first time

In 2014, Hydro One proposed replacing 11,000 utility poles in Ontario. That is 11,000 utility poles that need to be mapped, and attachments which need to be cataloged and managed.

Pole Mapper brings together the best in breed Laser range finders, GPS and mobile technology to significantly improve your teams’ workflows.

Accurate record keeping and high precision data collection of poles, and related equipment, when built is critical.  Utility Pole data isn’t static though; new equipment, 5G telecom gear, and new electrical infrastructure may need to be mounted in the future.

Can the pole ‘as built’ handle it?  Is there space on the pole?  These are the types of questions that Pole Mapper is designed to help answer.

Pole Mapper integrates directly with both high accuracy GNSS (GPS) positioning systems such as those provided by Trimble and Eos, as well as high performance Laser Range finders including those built by Laser Tech.

One click capture-and-map technology captures ALL pole information and spatial information at the same time. 


Create the workflows you need to capture the assets you want with whatever attributes you require.

Complete your pole location sketches in the field leveraging the data you captured.

Administer your workflows and your field and office team through the web system.

Integrate your Pole Mapper data with your asset repository. Synchronize with your GIS, export to Pole Engineering software, and more.
