Our recent project with Costain was such a success that we couldn’t not share news of it on the miso blog!

Project Goals

  • Reduce or eliminate manual processing times when generating asset co-ordinates.
  • Reduce time and friction calculating asset chainage.
  • Create a solution that can be easily utilised in future projects.


miso worked closely with both users and management to create a two-part solution that:

  • Extracts geographic location data process from CAD designs.
  • Creates additional attributes for individual assets based on their location, relative to the nearest carriageway (chainage).
  • Caters for both liner and point assets.


  • Reduced gathering location data process from 3-4 days to just 10 minutes.
  • Reduced time taken to create Excel and Shapefile outputs from 2 weeks to just 3 days.
  • Significant cost savings on project delivery, with human resources free to complete other tasks.
