sho me power background
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

  • External Users
    • Forestry, Contractors
history of smallworld at sho me
History of Smallworld at Sho-Me
  • 1995 Initial install of Smallworld
  • 1997/98 Model.IT
  • ~2000 Upgraded to PNI X3.1
  • 2005 Upgraded to PNI 4.0
  • 2008 Upgraded to PNI 4.1
  • 2011 Configuration Management Implemented
  • 2012 Enhanced Landbase & Electric
  • Smallworld continues to grow as integral part of business development
recent enhancements of smallworld technologies
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
recent enhancements of smallworld technologies etc
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
technical information configuration service
Technical Information: Configuration Service
  • Configuration Service by FCSI
    • All code is source controlled GE Products, 3rd Party, and internal source
    • Timely product updates (patches, new versions of 3rd Party)
    • Reliable/Repeatable Builds
      • User directory builds
      • Special Configurations Builds (laptops, test environment)
    • Integrated Wiki
    • Integrated Tickets
technical information power line elevations
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
technical information landbase fiber electric data
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
technical information landbase fiber electric data cont
Technical Information: Landbase – Fiber – Electric Data (cont.)
  • Electric & PNI pole data renamed to attachments to keep topology & existing functionality intact

technical information business data integration
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
technical information business data integration1
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
future enhancements
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
increasing smallworld usage at your installation
Increasing Smallworld Usageat 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)
