 Client

Gulf Power is a major electric utility company which serves over 420,000 customers in 71 towns and communities throughout Northwest Florida.

GIS Solutions for Utilities

  Georeferenced Alignment Sheets

 Problem

Gulf Power possessed over 2,100 hard-copy utility transmission line maps that needed to be put into a GIS system for future analysis, including an Aerial Imagery Base and Alignment Sheets in a ArcGIS Solution.

  Alignment Sheets with Aerial Base

 Solution

Digital Data Services converted these hard-copy maps into a GIS environment. Gulf Power can now quickly determine where their current right-of-ways are, where the substations lie, and the location of a transmission line input voltage based on the size of the area served. This dataset was also used to manage right-of-way activities including planning and management, property appraisal, property acquisition, property/asset management, asset relocation, vegetation management, and corridor preservation. Ability to analyze critical information within a GIS environment assists in NEPA management decisions and aids in asset management.
