The City of Las Vegas
Due to archaic records and inaccurate information, most utilities have no idea where all of their underground assets are located, resulting in those all-to-common service interruptions for residents when a power line is accidently cut or a water line bursts.

The model includes both above and below ground utilities, and is being used to visualize the location and performance of critical assets located under the city.
