GIS is a fast branch that is gradually spreading across of all sectors and all nations. GIS has helped in times past with locating issues with connectivity and power outages, as well as identifying sources of energy loss. The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company employed the use of GIS in mapping electricity network in the South-West region of Nigeria.

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) recently mapped the entire electricity network in South-East using Geographic Information System (GIS) to improve its operations. The Manager of GIS in EEDC, Mr. Ache Anyalewechi, on Saturday spoke on activities by the EEDC to commemorate this year’s edition of GIS Day.

The GIS Day, observed every Nov. 14, is an annual event to celebrate the technology of Geographic Information System and its enormous benefits to modern development and science. He explained how the company was taking advantage of GIS technology to improve the reach of the network within its service areas.

Mr. Ache further clarified that “with the aid of GIS technology, we have efficiently mapped our entire electrical network system, updated our customer database and captured all electrical assets within our network with each part of the infrastructure registered on the map.

The project will also help in identification of existing customers and make adequate planning for potential customers and network expansion, improved power supply and quick response to faults; effective power distribution and monitoring through remote sensing; prompt identification of damaged and non-functional equipment for replacement, as well as improved customer service delivery.”
