(April 2, 2007/Harrisburg, Pa.) GeoDecisions, an information technology company specializing in geospatial solutions, is developing a custom geographic information system (GIS) application for Illinois-based Adams Electric Cooperative. When complete, Adams will have a fully functional GIS database that will enable its users to view electrical data with increased spatial accuracy. As a result, Adams will quickly and efficiently compile and analyze its electrical data for outage management and other engineering analysis functions.
As part of the project, GeoDecisions is updating and converting Adams’ electrical data from AutoCAD® files to an ESRI®-based format geodatabase with orthophotography. The orthophotography background in the GIS is used for increased data placement accuracy and serves as a visual aid for crews out in the field.
To ensure all data is current, updates will be made to the GIS using Adams’ hardcopy map books and fuse/switch hardcopy maps. Additionally, the application will allow personnel to generate plots and prints from the GIS database that resemble the current appearance of familiar hardcopy maps.
GeoDecisions’ experienced staff of professional consultants, analysts, and developers supports clients across the United States. Fundamental to the company’s award-winning approach is the integration of spatial information to empower existing systems and processes. GeoDecisions’ philosophy is based on an enterprisewide approach to the integration of diverse information technologies, data formats, and systems.
GeoDecisions is ISO 9001:2000 certified for its operations nationwide.
