Utility Data

Reliable, up-to-date, and comprehensive utility data for your project needs.

Good utility data is the basis for interacting safely and successfully with buried infrastructure, whether that means planning and designing a new project, constructing or maintaining utilities or the areas around them, or managing or assessing sites in the public right of way or private ownership.

Utility data needs to be reliable, up-to-date, and comprehensive—if not, you’re not getting value for your project.

  • For the vast majority of sites, there is no unified source for high-quality information about utilities. Most as-planned or as-built records do not show the actual location of utilities as installed, and up to 40% of utilities may not appear on any records at all.
  • Bad utility data prevents you from making the best decisions in terms of design, scheduling, and constructability. Without preliminary data, there are also serious costs and risks associated with geophysical sensing or exposure of utilities on site.
  • One-Call fulfills a crucial requirement by marking known lines on site before you break ground, but they do not offer utility data in a digital map and have less capacity to provide accurate locating services during the planning and design phases.

4M provides a one-stop shop for utility data that is convenient to access and value-added to build confidence for your site.

Comprehensive data collection and analysis.

Our maps are based on high-quality, up-to-date visual evidence from satellite imagery, analyzed remotely using artificial intelligence, and validated using all the available records for each site. We streamline the process by bringing together multiple sources of information into a single map interface.

Multiple forms of data and metadata.

4M’s data includes the geospatial location of utilities on your site, as well as information about the type of utility, the functions and connections of different facilities in the network, the active status of the utility, and in some cases, additional context such as the age, ownership, and safety requirements of the installations.

Advance access and easy integration.

4M provides utility data in a digital, online interface that is easy to navigate and always accessible, at any time, from any location, from the very beginning of the project timeline. We give GIS positions for utilities on your site, so you can integrate the data smoothly into your site planning and engineering.
