The utility network is Esri’s next-generation GIS technology for modeling the complex networks of utility and telecommunications companies. The utility network enables advanced network analysis by more deeply modeling the components of a utility system.
This story map, Building the Electric Network, illustrates five common North American electric configurations and how to best model them using a utility network. These configurations are modeled at a high level of detail so that any open fuse, elbow, or switch can be represented. Also, a strategy to simplify the addition of configurations of features to the utility network is discussed.
