    Data Development and Maintenance

    Update and load electrical, land-base and gas-network maps

    Background and Objectives

    The client is one of the oldest natural gas delivery service companies in USA. They are the nation's third largest combined electricity and natural gas delivery companies with approximately 5 million metered natural gas and electric customers.

    The key objective of this project is to constantly update and load electrical, land-base and gas -network maps with attribute data onto client’s database in geodatabase format.

    Key Aspects of the Project

    • Online geodatabase updation via 512 dedicated internet connectivity.
    • Real time data updation of critical network attributes information.
    • Development and maintenance of Electric and Gas network database.
