GIS for Utilities

For utility and communication companies, GIS provides a common platform to access business data, manage assets, update network information, integrate work orders, find customer information, and prepare reports. 
 
GIS allows utilities to enhance network maps and business information with weather intelligence, topography, rights-of-way, satellite imagery, and field data.
 

GIS-based tools for quantitative analysis and visualisation help to systematically model, measure, and visualise issues with planning and engineering, marketing and sales, and customer care departments.
