%X This paper comprehensively investigates current
development status of global power grids and fossil energy pipelines
(oil and natural gas), proposes a standard visual platform of global
power and fossil energy based on Geographic Information System
(GIS) technology. In this visual platform, a series of systematic
visual models is proposed with global spatial data, systematic
energy and power parameters. Under this visual platform, the
current Global Power Grids Map and Global Fossil Energy Pipelines
Map are plotted within more than 140 countries and regions
across the world. Using the multi-scale fusion data processing
and modeling methods, the world’s global fossil energy pipelines
and power grids information system basic database is established,
which provides important data supporting global fossil energy and
electricity research. Finally, through the systematic and comparative
study of global fossil energy pipelines and global power grids, the
general status of global fossil energy and electricity development
are reviewed, and energy transition in key areas are evaluated and
analyzed. Through the comparison analysis of fossil energy and
clean energy, the direction of relevant research is pointed out for
clean development and energy transition.
