Subsurface Utility Mapping (SUM) and Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE)

GPR maps buried infrastructure and results can be incorporated in CAD & GIS drawings to help plan for large infrastructure projects

Map Multiple utilities at different depths and made of different materials

Since GPR can locate all utilities, including metallic and non-metallic pipes, a complete picture of all buried utilities at a project site can be completed early in the project planning. This example shows a cast iron pipe and a PVC pipe at different depths in the middle of a busy intersection. This aided in future utility planning

Locate utilities to plan new installations

Using GPS and interpretations, GPR can be integrated into Quality Level B SUE investigations. In this example, closely spaced utilities existed, and city planners wanted to ensure that the route of the new water lines did not interfere with existing infrastructure. The use of GPR helped them to plan the installation with minimal disruptions.
