Geographic Information Systems ( GIS ) is an ideal platform for supporting both the electric and gas utility networks. Combined with the newest Smart Grid technology, GIS provides the ultimate solution for your operations.
NewCom can migrate your existing facility records into GIS by offers a complete solution for your facilities management. These include facility migration from either paper records or CAD systems, custom update applications and integration of local cadastral and planimetric datasets.
NewCom can also enhance your GIS with a comprehensive field Inspection and data collection system with its Voyager, a mobile, durable GIS Inspection system.
Electric Facility Management
Visualize your facility unencumbered by a file based system. Unlike a CAD based systems, GIS provides A network-wide view of the facilities. Sample screen views of electric facility are below.
NewCom Tech offers a complete mobile inspection system designed with flexibility in mind.
The Voyager system is a fully integrated solution for in-the-field inspections and data collection activities. The package consists of hardware and software to support mobile data collect that is seamlessly integrated with the user’s GIS feature sets.
NewCom’s Voyager system provides a means to support a variety of field inspections. Voyager leverages the power of GIS by tightly integrating the user’s GIS data with these inspections and other types of data collection records.
Customized forms are developed for each use, ensuring that all data is collected while on site. Pull-down selections are used where appropriate to maintain consistency in the information collected and to simplify input. The information in these pull-down boxes is configurable by the GIS administrator.
Voyager allows the user to include multiple reference photographs that are automatically associated with the correct inspection record.
The system streamlines the inspection process, and reduces duplicated staff efforts. The information collected in the field can be used to directly support such things as reports, resident notifications, and work orders without the need to have clerical staff generate the documents.
Voyager can support damage assessment:
GPS driven map interface, allows for more accurate data collection.
Inspection information is complete. Any number of digital photographs can be taken while in the field and are seamlessly added as part of the inspection record.

GPS Field Surveys
NewCom offers a wide variety of GIS software solutions and data services for both the telecom industry and local and state government. NewCom can provide GPS based field mapping. We use mapping grade equipment to support our field collection activities.
Our facility mapping includes a complete set of attributes associated with each feature point. All data is post-processed to improve accuracy. The data is delivered as one of the standards ESRI data formats; SDE tables, Personal geodatabases, File geodatabases or Shapefiles.
