Did you know that up to 60 percent of water lost worldwide is due to leaky pipes? At the same time, global water usage continues to increase at twice the rate of population growth. We need ways to better understand water usage and practice smart water management to protect this valuable resource.
Problems such as leaky pipes can be avoided through the implementation of capabilities that help us understand the issue and make better-informed decisions.
In this part of the Geospatial Keynote at HxGN LIVE 2017, Mladen Stojic talks about the importance of sustainability with a focus on water management. He shows an example of how Hexagon Smart M.Apps are used to help a partner in Focșani, Romania build a solution to address this problem. The city of Focșani has over 1500 kilometers of water and sewer infrastructure that supports 80 thousand households. The city needs to prioritize where they spend their infrastructure budget, which leaks and other reported damages. Through analysis and visualization, M.App Enterprise helps them determine where to prioritize water infrastructure investment.
