Modeling Electric Distribution with GIS

Several years ago I wrote the book "Modeling Electric Distribution with GIS", which shows why the successful implementation of an enterprise GIS in the electric distribution industry is based on a sound and thorough data model. For GIS managers, business executives, and information technology managers, the book's technical information is designed for quick comprehension.

I thought some Energy Central Network members might be interested in reading it.

A topic that's only getting more relevant with time, for sure. Thanks for sharing, Bill-- are there any plans to write a new book on the topic in the future?

This is a great book for anyone looking at how to implement GIS for electric distribution. I highly recommend it.  Are you updating it for the new electric model from Esri?
