2-D GPR Scanning Results

   (Left) Represents an underground obstruction at about 3 ft. depth.        (Right) Is from the GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) machine making a turn.

 3-D GPR Scanning

3-D views from the GRP reveal a detailed image of underground obstructions. An 8” pipe can clearly be seen at about 2.7’ of depth.


















A slice can be taken from the 3-D data to show the exact depth and travel path of an underground Obstruction.

This shows an 8” HDPE pipe buried at a depth starting of about 2.7’ below the surface.














Water Storage Tank Location using GPR 


Best Tank Location for excavation identified (Circle).



Locations chose to minimize the potential for encountering obstructions within the given design space (Rectangle).





The GRP is equipped with radar that ties in the Global Positioning Satellites. This data can be transferred directly into Google Earth and the location and results of a GPR analysis can be stored and plotted on Google Earth to verify the exact location and depth of Underground Obstructions, and kept as a record for making drawings or documenting what is underground.
