Using GIS in the Electric Utility Environment


The Association for Utility Line Design Professionals (UtilityLDPros) is offering an in-depth webinar for utility line design professionals to help them better understand the role and importance of geographic information systems (GIS) in the design of overhead electric power lines and related utility functions.  The webinar leaders will describe the attributes of GIS as well as proven best practices for GIS management and use, as well as its use for engineering design and asset management.

Webinar Highlights:

Webinar leaders will address these common questions about GIS:

  • What are the attributes of GIS and why should electric utilities
    invest in GIS?
  • What are the typical hardware and software requirements for GIS?
  • What is the future of GIS?
  • How can GIS improve utility engineering design and asset
    management functions?
  • What are the best ways to obtain high-quality field data?

Webinar Content:

Participants will learn how to incorporate GIS in the practice of overhead line design and related utility functions.

  • Technical best practices in line design
  • Methods to obtain ground elevations
  • Use of construction standards drawings and specifications
  • Creating and using asset management records
  • Replacing assets based on system studies

Webinar  Faculty:
