Project Description


We believe that access to real-time data will aid disaster relief services and assist in the rebuilding and management of past present and future assets. We believe that in emergencies, consistency is key.
Consistency in data and communication holds the keys to successful asset management and mobile asset location services. Our product, Searching to Build will provide end users (businesses and citizens) the ability to access underground services' locations and state/local government the ability to manage and edit existing data models whilst in the field to attach photographs and comments.
End users will benefit from time reductions in disaster relief as this tool will eliminate the dangers of locating/rupturing existing assets and allow small-scale works to move forward quickly.
Government bodies will benefit from major cost reductions and will expect to have convenience and swift transactions with the NDRRA.


Data Story


Utilising multiple data sets and collaborating with programs and councils, it was decided that access to critical underground and above ground council and network assets was difficult, unreliable and timely or unavailable. Further investigation leads to the discovery of some city and regional council online mapping services.
