Geodata Systems Technologies, Inc., a systems integrator that focuses on integrated management information system (MIS) and GIS solutions, has won a R33-million ($600,000) contract to implement a GIS-based assets management system for Districts 1 and 2 of the National Transmission Corporation (Transco) in Philippines. Transco is responsible for the electrical transmission of the state-owned National Power Corporation (NPC). The GIS will greatly help in achieving the policies set forth by the government in enacting and implementing EPIRA. The project will provide digitized mapping for all of the corporation’s energy assets.
The Transco GIS project will be powered by ESRI’s GIS software, ArcGIS 9. The software suite includes ArcInfo, ArcView, ArcGIS Server, ArcGIS 3D Analyst, ArcGIS Spatial Analyst, ArcGIS Schematics, ArcGIS Data Interoperability Extension, ArcSDE, ArcPad, ArcPad Application Builder, and the Leica photogrammetry suite. Transco will also implement the Transmission Asset Management Information System (TAMIS) application of POWER Engineers, Inc. that is based on ESRI’ ArcGIS and will be ported to Oracle 10g.
