UKWIR successfully bid for DEBERR funding and is project managing the £2.4 million VISTA project. It is investigating the use of global navigation satellite technology linked to existing asset records to produce 3-D images of utilities underground assets. The project is supported by £0.9 million of DEBERR funding with over 20 collaborators covering a wide range of utilities in the UK. The project is being carried out by the Universities of Leeds and Nottingham.
This project is a collaboration of partners with an interest in street excavations. The ultimate aim is to provide tools to visualise underground assets by the use of GIS / GPS techniques before excavations are started.
