NUAR / The Geospatial Commission


The Geospatial Commission is an expert committee that sets the UK’s geospatial strategy and promotes the best use of geospatial data.

Atkins has been appointed by the UK Government’s Geospatial Commission to help create the digital map of underground pipes and cables. Atkins will be working with GeoPlace, Ordnance Survey, 1Spatial and other partners to deliver the build phase of the NUAR project.

With NUAR you will optimise the efficiency and safety of underground works on your assets. By creating a secure, trusted and sustainable platform, we will provide a consistent, interactive digital map which will sharply increase the efficiency, and decrease the costs of planning and executing excavations for underground assets.

We are building a digital map of underground assets to revolutionise how we install, maintain, operate, and repair buried infrastructure.
