The New York team implemented UNUM to develop a subsurface infrastructure data model and map for natural disaster risk identification and mitigation measures.
Underground infrastructure systems are critical to New York City, and these systems are vulnerable to natural disasters and accidental failures. Subsurface data is not publicly accessible in an interoperable format.
UNUM (Unification for Underground resilience Measures) engaged and collaborated with multiple stakeholders to apply the Underground Data Definition and Interchange (MUDDI) model to create a roadmap for the implementation of a subsurface data model and map.
UNUM worked with utility companies, city agencies and consultants to draw a roadmap for city-level implementation. This work included a subsurface data model and assembled two pilot data sets to equip the study sites against natural disasters.
