The map of the Public Lighting assets we propose to our customers, including the management payment instalment is in two formats:
- hard copy consisting of:
- a general map of the municipality, with a grid similar to the Pirelli or Tuttocittà maps;
- details of all the display panels showing where to analyse the area of interest in greater detail;
- the technical tables for the assets (sub-stations and light points).
- electronic format which can be consulted via the Internet on the C.P.M. web page, by simply entering your user ID and the password assigned to you.
The type of mapping proposed uses two basic applications:
- The toponomastic Google map, street format (see images below): one of the best, which photographs the reality of the local area best. It is constantly updated to record any variations, new roads and town planning which are implemented over time in the municipal area.
- The complete GPRS Notepad/Netbook: available to our staff with which to physically create the map.
Thus, on-site staff carry out the georeferencing of all the Public lighting assets (control panels and light points) of the reference Municipality and identify the true position in the area (with a margin of error of less than 150 cm), creating the map and entering all the individual technical data (state of panel, supports, type of light, etc.), which can be viewed in the technical tables.
Once the work is complete, the Municipality will receive the complete census, a valid technical support, which accurately mirrors the quantity and position of the asset in the area.
The advantages of this type of map are numerous when compared to those more commonly available, the majority of which are based on a few, barely updated, topographical and land registry maps with unmapped assets, with their installation point merely mapped approximately:
We propose dynamic, precise mapping. When there is a variation in the assets (e.g. phasing out or increasing light points, updated panel, etc.), the programme gives simple options to connect and then recognises them and shows them in real time on the map and on the technical tables so you always have the updated situation. A static map, on the other hand, requires a series of corrections to enter the variations which, in the end, prevent the correct reading of the map. This immediately becomes obsolete and you lose the information on the quantity and quality of the systems and equipment.
We propose mapping which allows you to carry out precise interventions of maintenance, because it reduces the down time between the call and execution of the intervention. When mapping is complete, each asset will have an identification code, which will be applied as a sticker on all the assets (sub-stations and light points). No intervention will be made on the lights of User “x” with the relevant times required to search for the light that is faulty. Interventions will be made directly on light “n” (where “n” is the identification code of the light point) in Via Rossi, fed by the sub-station x in Via Verdi. The technician will be able to make his way directly to the precise spot without having to identify the source which is not working.
Having all the data available in electronic format with updating in real time allows data to be extrapolated more easily, so that time management to find the information (required to evaluate the obsolescence or full efficiency of the lines) is optimal and, in the final analysis, enables the technical decision to be made faster and more accurately.
