Utility Mapping

What is Utility Mapping?

Utility Mapping is a dynamic way to get the utility locator’s findings onto a plan. It’s a basic plan with depths of services and real-time aerial image as a backing for reference. This service is generally used for construction or design.

In order to undertake a construction or design project effectively, accurate knowledge of the existing utility infrastructure in the area is crucial. By providing this information, potential conflicts are prevented, such as accidental utility damage during excavation or conflicts with proposed designs. Using specialised equipment, utility locators identify and mark underground utilities including water pipes, gas lines, electrical cables, and telecommunications networks.

A utility mapping plan incorporates these findings from utility locators into a scaled representation of the area or site where construction or design will occur. Utility mapping incorporates these findings into a plan. In this plan, underground utilities are shown along with their depths, which indicate their depths. The information provided by this document allows project managers, engineers, and designers to understand the exact location and layout of existing utilities during the various phases of the project, thereby facilitating an effective decision-making process.


OzDetect takes utility mapping a step further by incorporating real-time aerial images. These images provide a bird’s-eye view of the project site, allowing stakeholders to visually reference the utility locations on the plan. This visual context is crucial for a comprehensive understanding of the site’s underground infrastructure.

The real-time aspect ensures the utility mapping reflects the most up-to-date conditions, especially valuable in areas with frequent changes to utility infrastructure. This empowers project teams to make informed decisions and adjustments as needed.

Utility mapping with real-time aerial images isn’t limited to construction and design. It also aids in:

  • Urban Planning: Effectively plan new developments by visualizing existing utilities.
  • Infrastructure Development: Assess the feasibility of projects considering underground infrastructure.
  • Utility Management: Manage maintenance and expansion of utility networks with clear visuals.
