Our Main Ways of Mapping Underground Networks
Ground Penetrating Radar
This technique uses radar pulses to ‘see’ into the ground. The signals bounce off pipes, cables etc and helps create an image of what lies beneath
Here we use electromagnetic waves to pick up signals from power cables and communication equipment.
GPS surveys allow us to accurately survey a large area at minimal cost. Using satellite positioning, we can collect pinpoint geographical data to help us measure plot size, terrain and flood risk.
Digital Trial Excavation
Through the excavation of a small ground sample, we can gather data on soil quality and composition. This means we have an overview of the land’s geological condition and any risks that stem from it without any large-scale excavation work.
