The 'mapping the underworld' initiative was established in 2004 to help develop tools to locate, position and record every buried utility without the need for excavation. The 'mapping the underworld: multi-sensor device' project received funding from the UK government in 2008. The project commenced in January 2009 and held its launch seminar and workshop in February 2009. The launch event was attended by delegates from a wide cross-section of the utility sector. This paper describes the outcome of the interactive workshops and subsequent discussions with industry partners with the aim of providing a collective stakeholders' view of the challenges of implementing new surveying and mapping technologies and the associated research needs.
