With over 40,000 utility locate requests per year the DuPage Water Commission needed to make sure its two utility locators had on line access to accurate maps and as built pipeline drawings. By combining Google Earth with GIS shape files and Apache web server software they produced a simple, affordable and user friendly application the locators rely on to protect the Commission’s underground assets.
