Utility mapping

Power Lines Maintenance and risk management using LiDAR data

With more than 100000 km of experience in utility mapping services and Power Lines Maintenance (transmission and distribution) from LiDAR Data and Aerial Photography, DIELMO3D provides custom and high quality utility mapping solutions from LiDAR and imagery.

Through our extensive experience, we have developed our own processing and QA software to provide you better and faster results for 3D network design, vegetation management, clearance distances or PLS-CADD modelling among others.

  • Quality Control and flight line adjustment
  • LiDAR classification (by voltage and danger)
  • 3D Network Modelling and 2D vectorization
  • Vegetation management and clearance distances
  • Quality Control of the results (precision 99,99%)
  • Clearance distances and minimum distances analysis
  • PLS-CADD modelling for different weather conditions
  • Interactive online Reports (GEO-links)

2D/3D Power line network design

Vectorization and design of power transmission and distribution lines.

The optimal combination of LiDAR data and fieldwork allows providing ultimate and utility mapping services, as well as decreasing drastically the costs of traditional electrical grid design, network maintenance and inspection services. By designing the electrical network in 2D and 3D from LIDAR and Imagery (both for transmission lines and distribution lines), we provide our clients with accurate 2D and 3D power line models at a very efficient cost.

  • 2D & 3D power line network design
  • Utility mapping & inventories (crossings, buildings, assets)
  • New network design
  • Planimmetry and soil cover
  • PLS-CADD, 3D networks & weather conditions
  • Utility management and Engineering

Vegetation Management

Power line mapping solutions for network maintenance, vegetation management and tree trimming analysis using LiDAR and imagery.

LiDAR data allows to generate highly accurate 3D models for network maintenance but also for potential risk analysis and vegetation encroachment analysis. Our 100% customizable software allows us to run specific analysis using different safety parameters for each voltage, span, pole or tower. The results of these analysis become a key information for utilities, as it will allow them to manage and plan the manteinance of their network at different levels and prioritize their next steps.

  • Custom algorithms and tools for vegetation management
  • Fast and accurate vegetation encroachments detection
  • Tree fall risk detection
  • QA/QC on vegetation management (99,99% accurate)
  • Workflow and engineers team for hig volumes of data processing
  • Vegetation management using PLS-CADD (wind, temperature)

Clearance distances of the network

Safety distances analysis, priority areas management and power line inspection using LiDAR and imagery.

From the combination of LiDAR data with our custom algorithms we can obtain safety distances from each feature of the network (poles, wires, towers, span) to any existing element within the Area of Interest (buildings, other wires, ground, roads, etc). The results from these analysis will help utilities to check if the safety distances required are being respected or violated, as well as to set different levels of infringements for further actions on the network. All this analysis can be adapted and customized depending on final client’s requirements and goals.

  • Detection of risk areas and level of danger for utilities
  • Clearance distances between wires and other features (buildings, ground…)
  • 100% customizable workflow, algorithms and software
  • QA/QC on clearance distances (99,99% accurate)
  • Expert team ready to process large amounts of data
  • PLS-CADD for clearance distances (wind, temperature)


3D network modelling and PLS-CADD simulations for different weather conditions.

PLS-CADD software allows to model on 3D, run analysis and simulations on power networks for different weather conditions, materials of the conductors, etc. Once the utility network has been coded, modelled and the simulations are done; PLS-CADD allows to generate custom reports based on the results obtained previously.


PLS-CADD modelling requires a high level of expertise and has a huge demand for utility mapping services and projects. DIELMO3D has the required experience and knowledge providing these kind of products (more than 100.000km of experience in utility mapping); becoming a reliable partner for accurate and value-added products and services.

PLSCADD utility mapping
  • LiDAR data import in PLS-CADD software (.bak)
  • 3D Network modelling from point clouds
  • Safety distances and offending vegetation detection for different weather conditions (wind, temperature) and conductors.
  • Highly accurate 3D model for structures and networks.
