Intelligent Mapping believes there are four primary uses for our device in assisting utilities in managing their business and ensuring that accurate infrastructure is used to make business decisions.
Throughout the United States there are existing empty pipes across all utilities that can either be utilized by the existing owner or sold to another utility. The issue with the acquisition of these pipes is that the condition of the pipe or its exact location is often unknown, which can lead to additional capital and operational costs. By utilizing the device and software, existing pipes can be audited, providing both the buyer and the seller with data regarding the condition of the pipe and its exact location.
By utilizing the Intelligent Mapping software and device and a third-party inspection firm, utilities can streamline their processes and receive accurate, unbiased data about their infrastructure.
By utilizing the Intelligent Mapping software and device, a vendor can pre-qualify the conduit before installation. If there is a violation, they can verify its location.
One of the primary goals of utility coordination is to minimize the need for relocations through early identification and communication with the project design team, which reduces claims and expensive delays during construction. By utilizing the Intelligent Mapping software and device, designers can identify the existing assets in the project path and locate assets that are not found by other means such as ground-penetrating radar and frequency locators.
