Integrated Data Management System (IDMS)

The Integrated Data Management System (IDMS) is a system designed to provide a Geographic Information System (GIS) knowledge-based interface for management of the vast amount of precious underground utilities information, as well as efficient data input and reporting functions.

Characteristics of IDMS

IDMS is capable of handling the following function modules: CCTV Survey, Utility Survey, Manhole Survey, Water Leakage Detection, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Leak Noise Correlator (LNC) Inspection.

With the establishment of IDMS, the entire duration for utility survey and subsequent mapping process could be significantly reduced. There are totally nine steps for utility mapping including

IDMS is compatible with most currently adopted forms of reports and checking system such as STC25, Examiner, WinCAN, and Automapper, etc. IDMS provides an excellent interface to manage and integrate all the utility survey information including the alignment of pipes, ducts and drains the location of manholes through GIS knowledge based platform.

Benefits of IDMS


Mass Transit Railway(MTR) - Electronic Mark-Plant Circulation (EMPC)

The Electronic Mark Plant Circulation system (EMPC) is a computer system which is being used among Utilities Undertakers (UU) since 2002 to circulate the mark plant information, in an electronic way, prior to the application of road excavation permit. EMPC can be considered as an electronic replacement to the conventional workflow in preparing letter correspondence, replies, drawings and their dispatch by surface mail but in a much faster, automated yet legally admissible way. UtilityINFO Ltd was appointed by MTR to develop and implement EMPC on 24 December 2009 successfully. The system was initially funded and jointly developed by the Joint Utility Policy Group (JUPG) and under the coordination of Highways Department of the HKSAR Government.


The University of Hong Kong - Slope Management System (SMS)

Slope Management System (SMS) is an essential operation system to assist the Estates Office to perform effective management of over 200 slopes and 3000 trees located in the main campus and off campus area of the University. It is also a central place where people could search for all slopes and trees related information.
