BGE GIS Utility Asset Management and Reporting

Straughan is a prime contractor to BGE on a project to enhance and refine geospatial tools and data integrations. For this project, Straughan integrated diverse datasets with other functional areas (natural gas asset management), developed process-based systems to achieve objectives, performed high-level queries and analyses, developed visualizations customized for the task at hand, manipulated geographic data, and developed GIS content for web access in the field and for presentation purposes.

Straughan’s GIS staff ensured that the processes set in place supported and enhanced the client’s core needs as well as increased the efficiency and accuracy of data collection. By creating and publishing web maps and applications, we eliminated the need for paper records and digitization of those records, often a time-consuming step in this process. Similarly, by using best practices such as domains and required fields, data input errors were minimized, which further reduces the time and cost for data validation. Straughan used GIS to save our client time and money in executing this project while producing high-quality work products.
