Abstract

The Malaysia government have mandate the trust to Department Survey and Mapping Malaysia (JUPEM) to gather and organise the data for underground utility mapping. Hence in 2006, JUPEM has established a division for underground utility mapping-PADU (formerly known as Utility Mapping Section of the Mapping division) to compile all the data regarding the utility data. A Standard Guideline for Underground Utility Mapping (PKPUP 1/2006) has been produced by JUPEM in order to specify the procedure for collection, organise, and way of sharing data. In this circular also mention the issues for data quality and stakeholders. Thus meet the requirement that have been set by PADU. However, there is no legalisation or proper law that demand all the utility provider agency to share the data to PADU because the cost of licensed GIS software is expensive. The aim for this research is to design GIS database template for underground utility data management using GIS software. In order to give them an option of what software they can use, the research will differentiate between an open-source GIS software and licensed software based on a few aspect. In this research, the outcome is to grasp the potential of GIS software to develop an underground utility database.
