Mobile Design Capabilities (with GPS/GNSS)

  • Field design capability on tablets and phones (iOS and Android)

  • Support for various types of GPS/GNSS receivers

  • Compatible unit assignment in the office and field

  • Integrated real-time WAAS correction

  • Designs can be created while connected or disconnected, in the office or in the field

GSI Distribution Design Studio (DDS) is a comprehensive software solution that improves the design process by combining robust GIS/CAD rendering and editing capabilities with GPS/GNSS and intuitive, efficient toolsets to streamline electric and gas workflows, reduce design cycle times, and share design information with internal and external systems (such as GIS, WMS).

DDS incorporates end-to-end electric and gas line design workflows, generates necessary reporting outputs, and includes comprehensive engineering analyses including: structural analysis, clearance analysis, overhead profile view, electrical analysis, underground cable pulling/pushing, and optimization.
