What is Utility Data Mapping?

Utility Data Mapping is an essential solution for different kinds of projects that involve excavating. It can range from simple color-coded maps of subsurface utilities to complex and digital representations of what lies underground. Some of these maps can also be custom-produced as requested by the client in accordance with their project plan. More compellingly, 4M’s utility mapping platform is a single source of truth, and a holistic map of an entire state (Texas, for instance) and its subsurface.

Why Underground Utilities Data Mapping is Important?

Underground Utilities Data Mapping is necessary to comply with legal regulations prior to digging or breaking the ground, and to ensure the safety of workers and communities nearby. In addition, advanced Utility Data Mapping helps identify known and unknown utilities underground. Thereby, it mitigates the risks of subsurface infrastructure, empowers stakeholders involved in utility coordination and helps utility owners optimise their asset management.

What Kind of Underground Utility Data Mapping Options Are There?

Regular Utility Data Mapping options include notes, drawings, field sketches and intricate subsurface data. They range from complex CAD drawing files which are multi-layered to simple color-coded representations of subsurface infrastructure. Other options include customized solutions supported by satellite technology.Satellite-enabled Utility Data Mapping solutions tend to be more reliable as they render subsurface maps with visual evidence, thanks to advanced computer vision algorithms which detect objects underground.
