The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) has implemented Space-Time Insight's geospatial and visual analytics software, which Space-Time says correlates, analyzes and visualizes data in smart grid, distribution, outage, fire and weather systems.

According to the company, the situational intelligence solution was implemented as part of SMUD's Situational Awareness and Visual Intelligence initiative and helps managers and operators respond to outages, develop switching plans and make informed decisions regarding equipment maintenance and investments.

“The volume of data generated by our smart assets made it clear that we had to continue to innovate to improve the reliability and safety of service to our customers,” says SMUD’s Paul Lau. “Space-Time Insight’s situational intelligence system provides SMUD with unique management insight using the data afforded by the smart grid and operating environment.”
