Switch enables better pipe/cable searches
LSBUD, a UK online safe digging resource, has switched its mapping system to Google Maps to make searching for underground pipes and cables more accurate.
By moving its search function over to Google Maps, LSBUD users also will be able to accurately plot their proposed work areas via satellite imagery. This helps ensure people can see property boundaries and features, something particularly useful when operating in agricultural settings.
The change to LSBUD’s mapping system coincides with the platform readying itself to be UK-based, meaning people in Northern Ireland will soon be able to join their counterparts in England, Scotland and Wales.
