We bring you a success story about fighting electricity theft. Our guest is Uche Anyalewechi, Manager for GIS projects at Enugu Electricity Distribution Company. He explaines how he utilized GIS Cloud to fight electricity theft in Nigeria.
The webinar is based on a user story from the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) based in Nigeria, who started a large project to prevent the electricity theft. They utilized GIS Cloud to map the entire electrical network system, index the customers and update the billing database.
The webinar also brings the QA with Uche Anyalewechi where you can learn more about all the technicalities regarding the mapping workflow and GIS set-up.
