February 2023 Newsletter: Wisconsin Municipal Electric Utility Simplifies Asset Management

Feature Story

/// Wisconsin Municipal Electric Utility Simplifies Asset Management and Data Collection

City of Sheboygan Falls Utilities worker maps primary underground linear assets with submeter accuracy. Points (marked in red spray paint) were later digitized into lines, using the ArcGIS snap feature.

Known locally for their excellent community service, Sheboygan Falls Utilities (SFU) recently decided to revamp their technology in order to improve asset management and data collection. By bringing mapping in-house with web maps and GNSS, and with help from Esri partner OpenPoint, SFU was able to transition from paper and CAD drawings to real-time, reliable maps of their primary and secondary networks. In addition to streamlining information sharing from field to office and better equipping line workers with updated information at their fingertips, they also improved customer care with faster and more accurate responses.

Benson Crowell Integrates CAD with High-Accuracy GIS for Facility Management

Benson Crowell was accustomed to doing more with less. In his post-retirement passion project, Benson was able to make a lasting impact on facilities management at TDHHS. This was due in large part to Benson’s pure and unrelenting curiosity in cutting-edge technologies like GNSS, mobile GIS, and UAVs. Eos is privileged to have captured Benson’s passion in his own words in this spotlight.
