With The rapid development of urban lighting, a large and complex street lighting infrastructure has been formed. A large amount of data needs to be managed and processed. Traditional hand-drawn maps, memory management of maintenance manager, manual statistical analysis, and manual cards have been difficult to adapt to this rapidly developing management needs. Starting from the needs of sustainable urban development, the real-time information and data are shared and management processes are optimized by building a GIS-based urban lighting management system, effectively solving many problems in current urban lighting management, and improving the efficiency of the maintenance and management of the corresponding facilities.
The GIS system should implement the following main functions：
1） Facility positioning and quick search
Including transformers, distribution boxes (cabinet), power supply lines (power supply mode), landscape lights, street light poles, lamps, ballasts, controllers and other facilities can be visually reflected on the GIS, the corresponding facilities can achieve independent display by layers.
2） Facility physical affiliation
Should be able to follow: transformer > distribution box > power supply line (including phase information) > light pole (landscape light) > lamps, reflect the corresponding affiliation, when the corresponding facilities or power supply circuit changes, the system adjust accordingly.
3） Visual display of facility status
The basic information and status information of the facility can be visually displayed, and the alarm information can be highlighted in time.
4） Navigation-based operation management
The maintenance and repair of the facility shall be able to comprehensively set the reasonable maintenance base and strategy within the scope of the circle setting according to the importance and road attributes. When the maintenance base is reached, the system automatically arranges the processing sequence, and plans the optimal maintenance and maintenance path, and combining with car GPS, and handheld devices to monitor vehicle travel, and achieve real-time interaction of relevant information.
5） GIS-based statistics and analysis
Classify and summarize the facilities and status according to regions and roads。
Provide real-time search of no-light road segments to provide reference for the formulation of planning decisions.
Analyze the streets or areas where cable failures and facility failures are likely to occur under the factors such as season, to improve the purpose of inspections, and effectively avoiding blind inspections. Through the statistical analysis of the fault-prone road segments, the problem points can be quickly found and the faults can be reduced.
6） GIS-based design and handover
Improve design completion, database file management of construction drawings, guide design, to make the design not out of touch with the actual operation and maintenance, the distribution arrangement and the arrangement of the street lamps are more reasonable. Meanwhile, the regional cutting of GIS provides convenience for the design of the construction drawings. Standardize the handover of facilities to ensure the integrity of the materials transferred.
