Korea: Integrated map of 15 types of underground spatial information will be made

Korea: Integrated map of 15 types of underground spatial information will be made

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT) announced a “Plan for Establishing an Integrated Map of Underground Spatial Information (2016-2019).” This plan is to integrate underground spatial information organized by different ministries into a comprehensive system for more efficient management, provision and utilization of such  information. Fifteen types of underground spatial information, currently governed by five different ministries, 14 laws and 4 systems, will be integrated into a comprehensive map by 2019. If these types of information are combined with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, underground space will be managed in a more secure way through scientific analysis and forecast.
