Geo-spatial information system (GIS) is a powerful tool to Visualize distribution network as it exists on ground. GIS based electrical distribution network analysis & design tools enables the planning engineer to visualize the areas of low voltages and high losses; reconfigure network for reduction of losses in planning mode, design of distribution network to extend supply to new customers and siting of new substations to meet load growth etc. This paper describes the experiences in the development of GIS, in absence of network paper map and asset database and usage GIS based tools for analysis, and design of distribution network for the benefit of the utility as well as its customers.
