In power station management information systems (MIS), an important function is to manage electric facilities (e.g., equipment of main workshop, pipelines). Electric facilities have obvious features: their number is large and they are geographically related. The number of pipelines can reach about 40 types. Most pipelines are under ground and constitute very complicated networks. During the construction and development of a power station, these networks are changed at different extents. It is clumsy to modify paper maps, and paper maps easily become obsolete and are easily damaged. In addition, when the power station needs new buildings or needs maintenance work to pipelines, the worker should know their geographical distribution. These problems can be solved efficiently using GIS. In the facility management of power stations, facility maintenance management is a very important part, including heavy repair, routine maintenance, and facility defect management. At present, there has been mature management software for equipment maintenance and repair. Integrating these with GIS can enhance visual and graphical effects. Because of the large amount of equipment and the complexity of the pipeline network, the management requirements for administrators are very high. Applying GIS and network technology to power stations can implement centralized and graphical management of pipelines, equipment, workshops, and geographical related information and can provide data sharing, modern management methods, and decision-making support
