THE Applus+ SOLUTION
The Applus+ Geophysics group employs an integrated approach to utility mapping. We treat the utility-mapping process as a whole, beginning with visual observations, followed by cutting-edge instrumentation and trained personnel.
Our utility-locating equipment includes cable and pipe locators based on electromagnetic principles and dual-frequency ground-penetrating radar (GPR). The field results are combined with global positioning system (GPS) data to produce detailed, easy-to-use maps and digital data of the subsurface utility assets.
Based on site-specific conditions, our field technicians use state-of-the-art techniques to locate target utilities. By taking a comprehensive approach to each site, we increase detection and precision capability.
After the utility mapping has been performed, Applus+ assembles the recorded data into a deliverable Geographic Information System (GIS) format in accordance with client requirements.
