Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

A Geographic Information System (GIS) provides a common platform for storing, analyzing and displaying geographic information and is a powerful decision-making tool for utilities.

By deploying a GIS system, the utility can expect operational efficiencies and improvements in data quality and accuracy. For example, armed with GIS data, the utility can use outage flags to pinpoint which consumers have lost power as well as determine the full extent of the outage. Similarly, the utility can improve asset management by locating overloaded and under-loaded transformers.
