UPC & AS5488
In 2010 Locaters developed and delivered a unique Utility Positioning Classification (UPC) system to communicate our certainty in the position of a utility.
Detailed in field markings, on utility plans and within survey meta data as attributes, this simple language ensures designers, engineers and field personnel are aware of how successful the utility investigation was so they can make better planning decisions.
In 2013 the Australian Standard AS5488, Classification of Subsurface Utility Information (SUI), was published and our UPC system was aligned to it.
