The purpose of the VT GIS Pole Data Standard is to foster a uniform system for pole information. It is designed for all utilities and telecom organizations to effectively plan and manage their infrastructure over time. The Standard identifies the type and form of information about utility poles that are most useful. This can be used to guide decisions about what information to collect and maintain on these assets.
This Standard is for use by all of Vermont’s pole-owning utilities and telecom organizations and their consultants or contractors.
The Vermont Department of Public Service is the steward for the Standard. Individual pole owners are responsible for the datasets related to poles they own.
Nothing in this Standard requires its adoption, either in whole or in part, by any entity, including pole owners or other users.
