Description

Description

Underground utilities such as cables and conduits are rarely seen, and underground electrical vaults are complicated, dangerous, badly lit, and sometimes full of water or ice. Vaults are hard to access and records of what is inside of them will often be missing. Using cameras and ReCap 360 software, the Locates, Engineering, and Operations personnel at Anchorage Municipal Light & Power are creating 3D models of these assets in hard-to-reach underground vaults. They then use ReCap 360 software to make these 3D models available to utility personnel out in the field or back in the office.
