GIS for Utility Networks – Strategy, Tools, and Technology
Authors: Rene Espinoza, Alex Johnson
The effective use of GIS in utilities management is dependent on data completeness and quality. To improve the utility program at 5 San Diego Navy bases, NAVFAC SW engaged AH/BC to update and improve their GIS. We present techniques used to maximize efficiency and reduce cost while conducting GPS field surveys, editing geometric networks, and managing extensive source documentation to deliver a high-quality GIS product for water, wastewater, gas, electrical, and other utilities.
