Subsurface Utility Mapping Strategy Forum (SUMSF)
March 22 @ 10:00 am - March 23 @ 4:00 pm
This is a virtual conference intended to bring together individuals and organizations who wish to share information about and contribute to improving the mapping of underground infrastructure. The priority use cases for better underground mapping is reducing damage to
underground utilities during construction and construction efficiency. Another use case that is rapidly gaining interest among utilities, telecoms, municipalities and even nations is subsurface digital twins. Digital twins of underground infrastructure are living models of real world objects and require a city-scale platform and tools that enable a large number of data providers and users including construction workers in the field, developers
of analytics and simulations, and citizens to collaborate in maintaining and using the models.
The SUMSF conference is open to individuals and organizations who wish to contribute to progress in underground utility mapping. Presentations will focus on innovative strategies involving subsurface digital twins; legislation, regulation, business best practices, new technologies, and training and education for improving mapping of underground utilities.
