The geoAMPS solution for using GIS to advance renewable energy projects is discussed in a new article published on The Energy Collective website. The article is titled 'Utilizing GIS for Renewable Energy Projects."
GIS is one of the latest technological tools available to assist renewable energy companies with development and operation of wind farms, solar panel fields, geothermal plants and biomass facilities.
A powerful, quickly developing technology, GIS is making a major impact on renewable energy industries by integrating hardware, software and data for capturing, managing, analyzing and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
With GIS, companies can view, understand, question, interpret and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns and trends via maps, globes, reports and charts.
GIS is considered the go-to technology for making the best decisions about siting a new renewable energy project. That is because of the abundance of information it provides about local land use, population density, existing infrastructure, proximity to the power grid, natural resources extraction, environmental assessments and more. It helps energy companies understand what is happening and what is expected to happen in a specific geographical area. That kind of information can reduce or eliminate major headaches in project development and operation.
Recognizing the importance of such information to renewable energy and other industries, geoAMPS added GIS to its suite of software products and services. geoAMPS is a technology company that specializes in software solutions to manage land rights and infrastructure assets.
gisAMPS is one of the suite of software products available through geoAMPS. gisAMPS provides an intuitive geospatial view that is compliant with popular mapping technology, such as Esri. In fact, geoAMPS is a Silver Tier Partner of the Esri Partner Network.
“With Web-based editing capability, gisAMPS can greatly reduce your need for software deployment and increase efficiencies of any spatial editing,” Yogesh Khandelwal, President and Chief Executive Officer of geoAMPS, said.
gisAMPS can be coupled with any of the industry-specific software products offered by geoAMPS. One of its suite of software products is altAMPS, which offers end-to-end management of renewable energy projects.
altAMPS provides industry-leading Web-based tools, such as lease management, royalty payment calculator, payment tracker and scheduler and workflow management. It complies with processes unique to renewable energy companies. There is the added capability to access information through mobile devices, detached tools and GIS. No longer do project managers have to wait to share information with employees in the field. Through mobile technology provided by altAMPS and its Web platform, that information is available at the push of a button. Project information, development and workflows are managed more efficiently.
gisAMPS can be leveraged to integrate with an organization’s current system to add mapping capability. It provides dashboard-like capability to monitor projects and infrastructure assets through color-coded maps and layers. As such, gisAMPS allows real-time analysis of project data.
gisAMPS improves the efficiency of time-consuming processes, such as project siting, route planning and selection, cost analysis, environmental assessments, 3-D visualization and project management.
