Digital map of UK underground pipes and cables to be developed
from Computer Weekly
A digital map of the UK's underground network of pipes and cables is being created to reduce maintenance costs and enhance worker safety. The Geospatial Commission announced the creation of the Underground Asset Register, which will show where electricity and phone cables, as well as gas and water pipes, are buried. The project will start with £3.9m pilots split between the north-east and London.
