You gather, manage and maintain an ever-growing repository of data. Much of that data can be tied to a location — whether it’s an address, a physical asset or a set of coordinates. A tremendous amount of value can be unlocked by solving the challenge that comes from understanding the data findings and how to effectively use and apply the information across your organization.
Organizations benefit greatly from harnessing spatial data to inform decision-making. Combining your Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data with other spatial and nonspatial data helps to analyze problems in new ways. Data collected and analyzed today can solve a broad range of problems. Some examples include:
As required by a new Florida statute, Tampa Electric Company (TECO) needed to provide a 10-year storm protection plan. A list of projects and their calculated benefits was developed in alignment with the statute using an innovative analysis tool to establish overall budget levels and prioritize projects to provide the maximum benefit to customers.
The world’s electrical needs are evolving — the electric distribution grid must evolve with them. Entergy is using a bold new holistic planning process to jump-start this transformation.
Thermal surveys of the walls of a 200-foot-tall liquefied natural gas (LNG) tank can be challenging. Traditional thermal detection methods are costly, time-consuming and potentially dangerous. By using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) instead, thermal LNG tank inspections can be conducted safely and efficiently, while collecting more and better data.
