BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - East Baton Rouge Parish is using a mobile app to capture data about trees on public property, including possible power line dangers.

City-parish officials say the information is particularly important in preparing for and responding to severe storms, such as Hurricane Gustav in 2008.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1nSjLIy ) Hexagon Geospatial’s Mobile MapWorks program will track trees and catalog addresses for use in emergencies, public notifications and tax collection.
