Energy mapping firm expands power transmission data

Energy mapping and data provider, MAPSearch, announced that they have successfully digitized and added data from over 700 electric power transmission projects to their mapping database in 2013.

“PennWell’s acquisition of TransmissionHub and GenerationHub market intelligence services late last year gave us access to the most comprehensive set of transmission and generation project data available,” said Edward Metz, General Manager of MAPSearch. “Now TransmissionHub and GenerationHub subscribers can access detailed mapping information to complement the in-depth editorial coverage and project documents those services offer.”

MAPSearch’s electric power database has data for transmission lines, substations, power plants, service territories and includes:

·      45,000 miles of proposed and under construction transmission lines

·      15,000 miles of recently constructed transmission lines

·      200 proposed substations

MAPSearch data is available for license, through ENvision, its online mapping product.  MAPSearch GIS data is widely used by leading energy companies, engineers, consultants, regulators, and others for market analysis, engineering studies, project planning, emergency response, environmental impact studies and more.
