Innovative energy and transportation organizations have been rethinking how they manage the land along their corridors. For one, vegetation management is now integrated to turn these areas into quality habitat while reducing the need for costly tree trimming. Along roadways, a pioneering effort to add solar arrays is gaining ground.

In this Esri Blog webcast, you will learn how GIS helps organizations tackle the complex challenges of making the most of land in the margins—turning unused areas into productive lands for habitat restoration and the transition to clean energy.
