I AM trying to research the story of the Cork Joint Utilities Group project of the early to mid-1980s.
This was a groundbreaking initiative that sought to integrate all mapping and facilities management activities of the main utilities groups of Cork city in a single shared digital database.
At least one report was published on the initiative and it also received write-ups in a number of national and international professional journals.
However, tracking these down is proving very difficult. I would be grateful if anyone who has copies of these documents, or who might have been involved in the project themselves, would contact me.
