This lecture will look at the technology used to map underground utilities and the various other pipes and cables that we rely on for our day to day lives.

Date and Time

11 April 2013 - 19:30-21:30

Organised by the Anglian Coastal local network.

About this event

In Europe there are 20M km of pipes and cables beneath us. Their repair cost is large in terms of disruption to users and those who are delayed when roads are dug up. Utility records can be wrong or incomplete and dry holes (where the required pipe or cable is not found) are not un common amongst the 4 million holes dug every year in the UK. Phil will explain how technologys are being developed to assist in the mapping of these underground areas.
