The fast pace of development and urbanisation has resulted in creation of new cities, townships etc. The new residential or commercial settlements require procurement of amenities such as well-planned out electricity lines that ensure smooth, hassle free transportation of electricity. The use of GIS for electricity has created much fervour in the utility industry.

GIS for electricity, Remote Sensing, and CAD play an important role in designing, drafting, and planning of electricity supply lines within a township or from a power station in a time bound and organised manner. The maps of the concerned area are created use high end up-o-date software. The company works in multiple GIS for electricity and CAD formats and is therefore an ideally choice for clients worldwide.

The main areas of focus by AABSyS in the GIS for electricity sector are:

  • Various quality check procedure such as automated query checking, spot checking was done to ensure error free maps

Technology used

  • Our partner had provided their developed easy tools to expedite the data capturing process. The project was executed on CITRIX mode by accessing the remote server at customer end in Germany.
  • Medium Voltage cables were supplied directly connected from station to station.
  • All the electrical stations, distributors, joints, protection ducts were captured with their attributes. A standard 0.3 m distance was maintained between each cable.
  • All features captured in details scale then transferred to overview scale. Internal schematic maps for transformers and distributors were prepared.
  • Dimensions such as, linear, orthogonal, chain type were placed as per the raster maps
  • Each map was plotted and checked against the original scanned maps to ensure the 100% capturing of the data.
