Working with Geometric Networks for Utilities



This course teaches how to accurately model a utility network so that your organization can more efficiently manage network assets, quickly respond to network outages, and deliver better customer service. Working with realistic electric, gas, and water/wastewater data, you will create and edit geometric networks and perform common analysis tasks.
