ETAP GIS provides owners, operators, and planners geospatial tools to better design, analyze, and expand their networks.  It can include transmission, sub-transmission and distribution networks in the same electrical model and solve the combined networks. ETAP GIS can also be used to include detailed substation layouts, individual tower configuration, and generation plant details using a geospatial layout.
