1 Expanding the User Base of Smallworld Technologies at Sho-Me Power Cooperative Andy Meyers – Sho-Me Power Cooperative Mark Field – FCSI

2 Overview Brief Background on Sho-Me Power Cooperative History of Smallworld at Sho-Me Recent Enhancements of Smallworld at Sho-Me Technical Information of Enhancements Future Plans

3 Sho-Me Power Background 1941 Power Transmission Cooperative….. – Cover approximately 1/4 of Missouri – Some Generation – ~1800 miles of Sho-Me owned transmission line 1997 Development of Fiber Infrastructure – Sho-Me Technologies LLC formed – Microwave Towers converted to Fiber (gov) – ~5000 miles of total fiber in system – ~2100 miles of Sho-Me owned fiber

4 Sho-Me Users of Smallworld Sho-Me Technologies (Fiber) – uses PNI database – Environmental Department Water crossings Bat studies – Marketing Electric Transmission (Sho-Me Power Electric Coop)

5 Sho-Me Users of Smallworld Data Board – Heads of Distribution Coops Legal Department Accounting – Data in tax districts One-Call Maintenance – uses data to fix infrastructure (equipment, fences, etc.) External Users – Forestry, Contractors

6 History of Smallworld at Sho-Me 1995 Initial install of Smallworld 1997/98 Model.IT ~2000 Upgraded to PNI X Upgraded to PNI Upgraded to PNI Configuration Management Implemented 2012 Enhanced Landbase & Electric Smallworld continues to grow as integral part of business development

7 Recent Enhancements of Smallworld Technologies Configuration Service from FCSI – Much more stable – Users more pleased – Management sees more reliability FCSI Power Line Elevations – More transmission line users – Faster initial evaluations of routes – Plan and Profile Sheet Views

8 Recent Enhancements of Smallworld Technologies (etc.) Shared Fiber – Electric Data (Landbase) – Common data = less data maintenance Business Data Integration – Pole/Structure information now available to users – Pole/Structure Problem data available Maintenance maps – Gate Problems/Fixes (planned) Electric Data Enhancements – More Substation Data – Better Circuit Definition – Support Double Builds

9 Technical Information: Configuration Service Configuration Service by FCSI – All code is source controlled GE Products, 3 rd Party, and internal source – Timely product updates (patches, new versions of 3 rd Party) – Reliable/Repeatable Builds User directory builds Special Configurations Builds (laptops, test environment) – Integrated Wiki – Integrated Tickets

10 Technical Information: Configuration Service (cont.) Examples from website

11 Technical Information: Power Line Elevations Automatic elevation source DEM download – User quote “That was the easiest import ever!” Automatic contour and label generation Automatic elevation application to geometries Elevation search functionality Plan and Profile Sheet view of existing or proposed transmission lines

12 Power Line Elevations Example

13 Technical Information: Landbase – Fiber – Electric Data Fiber Dataset – PNI database Electric Dataset – Sho-Me Power Data Model Expanded Landbase Data Set – Poles – Structures – Substation – Real world geometry and information

14 Fiber (PNI) Technical Information: Landbase – Fiber – Electric Data (cont.) Electric & PNI pole data renamed to attachments to keep topology & existing functionality intact Landbase Pole Electric Pole Attachment Structure Structure Attachment Pole Attachment Structure Attachment

15 Technical Information: Business Data Integration Initially created “programmic” fields which externally connected thru SQL-ODBC – Programmic fields act like logical fields in database, but configured with code searchable and viewable in editors – Select-Style functionality show pole problems graphically (examples…) – Worked great but slow for large area or database searching

16 Technical Information: Business Data Integration Synching to Business Dataset – Created data model that matched business database – Scheduled task starts synch image weekly – Much faster solution – Super join functionality – All business data available New possibilities – reports/plots

17 Business Data Integration Example

18 Future Enhancements SCADA integration – Show live data within Smallworld Additional pole problem display Display gate problems & fixes Simplified Electric Application – Increase Transmission Users Upgrade to PNI 4.3 Corridor Management – Vegetation/Regulatory (Bats) – LiDAR Utilization

19 Increasing Smallworld Usage at Your Installation Smallworld Champion – key Always ask where can GIS data be used What is the “source of record” for data – Can it be within Smallworld? How can “external” data augment Smallworld data? – Filter data, drive styles Reliability (source control, defined tests)

20 Questions?/Contact Mark Field FCSI Booth 19 Cell: mbfbsae90
