Anyone get some ideas about the interface between underground utility and GIS? Utility surveying is quite a new topic to me and I want some examples on how GIS techniques facilitate utility surveying and management. Thx.

I'm not experienced in utility management, so just my few cents to this. It's simple to store survey data to utilities together with management data in a spatial database (it doesn't really matter if your company uses database vendor A or B). What counts more is the interface to integrate into your business cases. There are plenty of turnkey solutions for this, I think Autodesk (autodesk.com/industry/civil-infrastructure/…) and GE Smallworld (gedigitalenergy.com/newsletter/june_2011/Industry_News/…) should be evaluated. –  Jürgen Zornig Mar 30 '13 at 17:33
