Planning power transmission lines has never been easier Our 3D Decision Support System (3D DSS) helps urban planners and decision-makers to plan power transmission lines. We use latest 3D technology combined with Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to do research in how transparency can be fostered and acceptance can be increased when communicating a grid expansion project to involved stakeholders and to the public.
Different interests lead to different opinions. Our 3D DSS brings all interests together in order to find a consensus solution.Read More
We implemented many new features that support the analysis of different corridors and paths. For example, defining a scenario is now based on objectives that a user wants to pursue. The 3D DSS automatically computes, to what extent the objectives have been fulfilled and shows these results graphically in a spider chart and on aRead More
We are pleased that Daniele Moncecchi @DanieleMonce from Politecnico di Milano will write his Master’s thesis as part of the 3D DSS project, aiming at answering the question: What is a valley? The novel approach should keep transmission line paths short and the negative impact on landscape and environment low.Read More
Happy new year! The 3D DSS project is looking forward to achieve ambitious goals this year! Thus, we are looking for transmission line planners who are willing to fill out a questionnaire regarding our decision model. Please find more information here or participate directly in our questionnaire in English or German.Read More
