AbstractGeoinformation technologies provide wide-ranging perspectives in determining expansion paths and its costs which is essential for decision making in electrification planning. Considering several landscape characteristics offers the creation of power grid paths with both least monetary cost and least environmental impact. The present paper describes a detailed open source solution for the planning of new power lines in rural areas by applying routing algorithms using raster data with a resolution of 90 m.
