Aug Data

Project Info

Project Description


This project is visualize underground assets using Augmented Reality. At present the underground assets can only be seen on map. With this application using Augmented reality and also using City of Gold Coast open data sets Sewer Connection, Recycled Water Pipe, Potable water pipe, raw water main, Drainage pipe, Fiber optic cable etc, we can visualize the actual assets at the location. Application camera takes the current location and shows any underground assets underneath using Augmented Reality.


Data Story


City of Gold Coast has many underground assets like water pipes, drainage pipes etc and these assets can be seen on the map using GIS co-ordinates. Using this open data, the project is trying to visualize the underground assets such that user can find exactly where they are located using Augmented Reality. This functionality is very useful for Council staff and also for local public to locate the assets, Dial before dig, Plumbers, NBN connections, Tree planters, Real Estate Industry.
By using this applcation, the Construction industry can take dvantage in the tender process by visualising complex 3D architectural models and to give site engineers a tool that will help them plan and manage their site more effectively.

In Emergency Management Councils have realised that it is severely important to know where underground assets are before a disaster strikes. It gives the emergency management crew a tool to respond fast based on information that is instantly available and easy to update from ground zero.
Usage of Aug Data:
1. Visualize any underground assets at a particular location
2. Easy for Maintenance staff to locate underground assets
3. Reduce time and money for Plumbers to locate the underground pipes for connections
4. Real Estate buyers can look at the underground assets before buying the property
5. Cable connections made easy
