Gyro mapping is rapidly becoming a widely accepted technology for obtaining accurate XYZ data of subsurface utility infrastructure. Whether through national regulation or the utility network owners’ diligent network management policies, gyro mapping is becoming a standard new-build specification, in particular for trenchless installation methods. In addition, Utility network owners see a great benefit in having an objective and accurate as-built profile during the hand-over process with infra...

In an era of growing utility digital transformation, why do utilities still collect construction as-built data with paper? Grid transformation requires utilities to manage data from source to consumer in a 100% digital manner. But, utilities have spent decades and millions of dollars on digital design, GIS and ADMS only to end up with digital bookends around a paper field process. The result - long cycle-times, manual project close-out, inaccurate facility maps and poor grid data. This se...

Municipalities in Canada manage over 60% of public infrastructure. They are the hub of activity in infrastructure spending and engaged in every facet of infrastructure construction. Most municipalities have developed, to varying degrees based on their size, centralized data and technology capabilities with more advanced municipalities implementing enterprise level data and technology environments. CAD, Mapping and GIS data interoperability efforts have been ongoing for some time. Open data...
