The underground infrastructure is a very complex and heterogeneous system with many different functions, owners and users. The information about underground infrastructure is:
The agencies are concerned with the capacity, performance, safety, reliability and so on of their own assets only. Sharing of information is limited and difficult and becomes a great disadvantage when subsystems are interfering with each other.
Lack of information about underground assets and their links with above-ground facilities leads to failures, delayed construction works and extra costs.
We propose an innovative mechanism for information exchange of underground infrastructure, which will ensure interoperability and security. The intended integrated information management approach will:
The value of the proposed solution is in manyfold. It will ensure that the dedicated information systems that are being used by the respective agencies will remain unchanged. It will:
