    With over $1 billion worth of work planned over the next 5 years plus the possibility of permission being granted for the construction of a second runway, it is essential that Gatwick Airport has access to up-to-date, accurate information with regards to the critical infrastructure that keeps the airport operational. This class aims to describe the existing systems that were in place, along with the issues that have arisen as a result of having incorrect geospatial data on buried utilities. We will then describe how we realized the solution to this problem using AIMS Technology, which we will host in a cloud environment utilizing mobile tools in the field to view and update incorrect data. We will also describe how we could use the power of the crowd to perform mass updates on these data sets and the enhancements we have planned to support the airport operation, linking it to third-party systems such as Maximo and making it an integral part of our resilience planning.
