Developing a Subsurface Digital Twin for Canada: March 22nd SUMSF Online
The total cost of underground infrastructure damage in Canada during excavation work is estimated to be over $1 billion dollars annually. The primary cause of these damage events is the lack of accurate information on the nature and location of buried facilities. The Canadian Underground Infrastructure Register project is intended to enhance the current damage prevention process by reducing the time and effort to gain access to data and to provide a mechanism to constantly improve the quality of that data.
The goal of the panel:
To communicate the need for developing a digital twin to improve the damage prevention process in Canada, the mechanism to build that digital twin, and the benefits that access to the data provides to owners, designers, SUE firms, and locators. The discussion will also to relate the benefits that will accrue to excavators and society in general in terms of safety, environmental integrity, and economic benefits.
Join the international Subsurface mapping community at SUMSF for this fascinating discussion.
