Digitisation of cable drawings

Banedanmark has thousands of cables buried in the ground. The cables are of different sorts, such as live cables and liquid-carrying cables that can be as much as 100 years old.

The information about these cables are drawn - with great variety of quality - into a map and saved in different formats e.g. TIFF, PDF, DWG and GDN and placed in an electronical file system.

Converting these drawings into a Geographical Information System (GIS) is a complicated manual process that is both time consuming and ineffective. Therefore, a new innovative solution needs to be developed.

Banedanmark is launching this crowdsourcing challenge to investigate the possibility of an automated or semi-automated converting process.
