Geospatial Least-Cost Planning Guideline: 5+ Steps Approach

The development of this guideline stems from the absence of manuals and information on the management of planning the access to the electricity grid at the lowest cost using a geographic information system. This guide provides an overview of the planning steps that must be carried out and is expected to help planners to access the electricity grid, described into 4 sections. Section 1 outlines the purpose, use of the guidelines, limitations and definitions. Section 2 outlines the basics of geospatial and the 5+ Steps. Section 3 describes the procedure for implementing the 5+ Steps. Finally, Section 4 (Closing) contains notes for guideline users from the authors.
