Google Maps helps Ergon see the forest and the trees

Tracking the growth of trees doesn’t seem an obvious way for a big power company to save money but Queensland’s Ergon Energy estimates it may save nearly $60 million over five years by increasing its use of Google Maps to handle information once stored inside its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.

The electricity company is one of a growing number of organisations putting mapping technology, and Google Maps in particular, at the heart of their business practice.

Ergon is using a paid product called Google Maps Engine to map its entire network of 150,000km of poles and wires across Queensland, from towns and cities to remote corners of the state.
