Utillix is an Australian-based company with a simple vision – to show commercial and residential users ‘what lies beneath’ their feet.
Utility owners and contractors who deal with subsurface infrastructure are familiar with the age old problem of trying to identify what assets are underneath the surface before any surface excavation can begin. For commercial contractors, traditionally, the process involves acquiring paper plans, and attempting to interpret as-built drawings (sometimes handwritten) to ascertain where particular assets are.
Utillix is aiming to make this guessing game a thing of the past, by providing users with an online view of the subsurface landscape. Existing assets are displayed on the map by using spatially coordinated data, which ensures users have centimetre accuracy on where assets are located.
Users can also add their own asset data to Utillix, by adding photos and GPS coordinates, helping to enhance the understanding we have of the subsurface assets in place around Australia - and if the Utillix founders have their way, around the world.
