Managing NERC Compliance Requirements Using LiDAR Technologies
Recent guidance in the electrical transmission industry recommends the use of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technologies to determine facility ratings based upon actual field conditions. But what are the first steps; how should you specify your requirements; and what company can provide this highly technical service in what period of time and to what levels of accuracy and completeness? What are the deliverables of this technology; what is it going to cost; how do I know that I will receive what I need and what I’m paying for?
These are all important questions that demand answers before undertaking the procurement of a LiDAR service contract for transmission line asset management. eMap International is the leading professional geospatial consultancy company, providing best value guidance thru the maze of questions and potential for errors and waste. Since the inception of airborne LiDAR in the mid-1990s, eMap has been at the forefront of LiDAR applied technology and is recognized as an expert in this field.
eMap’s practitioners have supported the electric power industry for over thirty (30) years. eMap has worked in the role as a licensed geospatial professional in direct charge of major electrical utility mapping assignments both nationally and internationally. eMap is completely independent, an honest broker.
