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 


Sho me users of smallworld
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)


Sho me users of smallworld data
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


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 configuration service cont
Technical Information: Configuration Service (cont.)

  • Examples from website


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)
