DGT Associates, a New England surveying and engineering firm, announced it is partnering with Austria’s Geolantis to provide the next level in advanced digital reporting and functionality for subsurface utility mapping (SUM) services. DGT becomes the first firm to offer the Geolantis software platform in the United States.

“Geolantis provides an industry leading platform for the most complex and challenging subsurface mapping projects, and we are excited to introduce it to our clients, partners and prospects,” says Michael A. Clifford, PLS, DGT’s co-founder and principal. “Their proven technology goes beyond the ‘Wow-factor’ to enhance the value of utility surveying for everyone involved.”

The Geolantis cloud-based solution provides key connectivity for collaboration between teams out in the field and in the office. The software is powerful and intuitive, offering asset data that is accessible in real-time and combines proven acceleration of mapping speed and increased quality. The platform also provides reporting that’s easily searchable and highly shareable across devices and various export formats.

“DGT is a committed leader in advancing SUM technologies and capabilities, and we are thrilled that they have chosen Geolantis as a partner for the future,” says Michael Pegam, CEO of Geolantis. “The DGT team knows from their decades of experience that the key to success is constantly improving and delivering accurate and timely guidance in adaptable formats for clients.”

With the Geolantis platform, DGT is preparing for the next generation of land planning while enhancing clients’ institutional memory and long-term capabilities. "This platform builds on what we know works best in the field and for our clients’ project needs,” says Mike Twohig, DGT’s SUE/SUM services manager. “As our industry accelerates the transition from print-only plans to a more digital workflow and as we incorporate more 3-D modeling, this strategic partnership gives us a more secure, versatile and forward-thinking tool.”
