electric GIS DATA

Asset and Location Information = Competitive Advantage. GIS (Geographic Information Systems) is virtual mapping for today’s world.

In the age of technology, paper maps are no longer the most reliable source for information involving the location of ever-changing infrastructure. By using digital data, this information is easily updated by our experienced GIS technicians, and is re-distributed to our clients on a quarterly basis.

With MAPSearch GIS data, clients can visualize information that reveals new relationships, patterns, and trends not visible with text-files, spreadsheets, or tabular databases.

MAPSearch GIS data shows not only the location of energy assets, but also valuable information about those assets--such as the owner, operator, last owner and operator, year installed, and more.

We offer four comprehensive datasets:


Natural Gas

Electric Power

Parcel Data


As the trusted industry source, we have listened to our clients and adapted to their needs and budgets

MAPSearch provides the most value for your GIS dollar. Our product bundles offer you flexible choices at reasonable prices. Sold by state, region, or all of North America–we are happy to learn what license best fits your needs.

Power generation has grown by nearly 50% in the last decade, but power companies are not utilizing the opportunity to evaluate other forms of fuel sources. With MAPSearch GIS data covering renewable energy generation and transmission, your company can be on the front line of tapping into these exciting new fuel sources.

Our MAPSearch team has completely organized and spatially adjusted our electric power infrastructure to include precise locations of Renewable Energy sources, as well as the most accurate attribute data. MAPSearch has utlized the latest satellite and aerial sub meter imagery to most accurately place our renewable generation and transmission to assist the need of utilizing new forms of power generation.

The location of renewable energy plants is just the beginning, while the location of transmission lines causes renewable energy to become a reality. MAPSearch data gives clients the most precise locations of how this power can be transmitted. Our data’s precision of transmission lines is unmatched in the industry; our renewable energy bundle is vital to any company taking advantage of renewable energy.

Primary Package Includes:

  • GENERATION PLANTS WITH RENEWABLE FUEL SOURCES:  Biomass, Geothermal, Hydro, Solar, Waste and Wind Plant name, owner/operator, number of units, name plate capacity, year installed and more.
