Klic Win: Exchanging Geographical Information to Prevent Excavation Damage to Cables and Pipelines in The Netherlands; A Usecase Of Inspire Utility Services

The Dutch Cadastre has started research on the desired direction for future development of the information exchange of Utility Servicdes. It has revealed that the Industry (excavation community, network operators and Public Works) needs to improve management and improve efficiency in order to limit excavation damage. Information on a digging area need to be available as multiple types of data or as layered maps. The subsoil information needs to be ubiquitous (omnipresent), continuously available (24x7), without waiting (near real time), and presented at any location and on any user platform. The information should also include other information such as planned topography, type of soil, ground water, cadastral boundaries, address etc. In order to make an analysis and project development plan, the delivered information needs to be inter-operable with third parties systems. The Industry wants to have a controlled process for registering digging applications as well as authenticating applicants and documenting their digging purposes. The Dutch Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency will extend the national facility, based on KLIC-online. The European Directive 2007/2/EC establishes an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE). This Directive entered into force in 2007 and regulates metadata and interoperability of spatial datasets as well as services for viewing and downloading. One of the 34 themes concerns Utility Services, which obligates public network operators to make their registrations available by means of viewing services and download services. In a letter of intent, the stakeholders (Ministries, Cadastre, network operators and excavators) have declared to adapt the actual portal so that it meets future needs of the Industry as well as the needs of the national legislation WION and the European Directive INSPIRE: KLIC WIN (Wion and Inspire) aims to prevent damage to utility networks during excavations. The outlines of the development program are expected in the spring of 2014 and it will be a concrete use case of INSPIRE. The presentation will discuss the present KLIC system, the research results and the development program for the new system KLIC WIN.
