Georgia Power, the largest electric utility in the Southern Company, is an investor-owned company with $13.5 billion in assets and 100,000 acres of land. An Enterprise GIS Strategy is integrating GIS into Southern's business processes. Unique challenges lay ahead in modeling how land is bought, sold, and managed under a metes and bounds survey system. The original 13 U.S. colonies still use the system, which involves irregular parcel boundaries often based on physical "landmarks" such as trees or rock piles now long gone. The state of Georgia also has odd physical boundaries that are part of the legal description. Once a GIS is implemented, developers must tie a document management system containing more than 500,000 plats, deeds, and other items to each polygon.
