assets at lower cost. It is vitally important for DELTA to have a GIS
which, apart from managing and providing information on the
infrastructure, is able to rapidly exchange data with other systems.
GIS helps companies such as DELTA to rapidly identify affected areas of
infrastructure during excavation work, utility breakdowns and other

and elsewhere, are discovering the advantages of modern Geospatial
Information Systems for managing their infrastructure and are planning

ArcFM UT product manufactured by ESRI Inc. partner AED-SICAD based in
Munich, Germany. This is the most advanced utility GIS solution on the
market. The major advantage offered by ArcFM UT is that, in contrast to
traditional GIS solutions, it can be implemented without much
customer-specific software development. ESRI Nederland has specialist
knowledge of the multi-utility sector in combination with the most
extensive GIS platform in the world, ArcGIS. LogicaCMG has considerable
experience of implementing major projects involving GIS applications
from a variety of leading vendors for its energy, utility, public
sector and defence customers around the world.

a fixed place on, in, above or beneath the earth‘s surface.
Organisations using this type of information are among others
government, defence, transport and the multi-utility sector.
location-related information. Demand for the effective and efficient
processing, management, collation and analysis of such geospatial
information is growing. The possibilities for doing so have improved
greatly in recent years with the development of Geospatial Information
Systems specifically developed for the manipulation, analysis and
presentation of place-related information.

changes it is vital for proper links to be established, for the
available data to be collated and for knowledge to be shared. This is
best done with the aid of a Geographic Information System (GIS). The
