Abstract

For many utilities, data from a Geospatial Information System (GIS) represents an under-utilized asset. For most of its history, GIS was just the way people obtained maps—a very fancy and expensive way to put dots and lines on paper. That is slowly changing as the need for a central repository of asset identification, relationship, and spatial information becomes apparent. With grid-modernization programs underway at many, if not most, utilities, GIS data is becoming the basis for planning, grid operations, metering, management of distributed generation, situational awareness, and outage management. As a result, accurate GIS data is quickly becoming central to the success of an operations center.
