Mid-West GIS has begun work on the GPS field inventory of the electric distribution system for Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, Illinois. This project will include the GPS collection of around 1,000 electric utility pole locations, as well as all of their associated assets. Some of the attachments and attributes that will be collected are; transformers, fuses, guy wires, pole height, line phases, and other features. Digital photos of each utility pole will also be collected and hyperlinked to the GPS data. Real Time Kinematic (RTK) GPS data collectors will be used for this project. This type of data collection will provide sub-centimeter accuracy for each point. For more information on this type of work please visit our Electric Distribution GPS Data Collection Services Page.
