The KLIC-WIN initiative originated from the vision for the excavation sector for the future. The name KLIC-WIN is a contraction of the Dutch law WION and the European regulations INSPIRE. The program modernizes the exchange of cable and pipeline information according to the WION and better connects systems and processes to INSPIRE. Part of KLIC-WIN is the new IMKL2.1. Data specification IMKL2.1 provides a description of the structure, content and data quality of utility networks and serves as the basis for KLIC access and implementation. The data specification servesthe implementation of digital message traffic on the theme of utility networks. Decisive in this regard are the WION Act and the link with the European INSPIRE regulation on the theme of Utility Networks.
IMKL2.1 is the successor of IMKL1.1. The new model is richer in both topology and vocabulary. Several new objects, attributes and relationships have been modeled in relation to IMKL1.1. The richer data set offers more possibilities for analysis and visualisations. The new IMKL2.1, as part of the KLIC-WIN program, started on 1 January 2019. Within a period of six months, all network operators must switch to the new information model. KLIC-WIN is intended for excavation contractors, network operators, service providers, farmers and private individuals. From 1 January 2019, these parties will start working according to KLIC-WIN, and therefore also IMKL2.1.
However, the question arises how it can be ensured that parties actually start using the richer IMKL? The Kadaster aims to allow users/developers to take up this challenge and to develop new tools and viewers themselves. To persuade these users/developers to do this, Kadaster would like to show a number of inviting showcases on the website. Four showcases have been developed for this purpose, in which it is shown and explained how IMKL2.1 data can be used to visualize uncertainties and risks. To clarify, the delivered product is not a working prototype, but a set of visualisations and its business rules. The showcases are purely illustrative.
