3D Underground Mapping & 3D Underground Imaging Services
Knowing what’s underneath the ground on a job site not only saves time and money, but is fast becoming a requirement of many developers and government bodies. Locating and identifying underground facilities, especially in large or highly congested areas has just gotten easier. A new technology, called 3D Underground Imaging lets you see in three dimensions what lies beneath the surface.
3D underground mapping and 3d imaging produces three dimensional data representations of features such as buried utilities, buried debris, storage tanks, rock formations, even voids. A whole new dimension 3d underground imaging adds another dimension to already robust Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) locating and mapping capabilities.
However, in areas with a known high volume of underground facilities - such as in highly urbanized areas with multiple buried utility lines - two dimensional technologies may fail to detect some features due to interference caused by the heavy congestion.
That’s when 3d underground imaging excels, because it “sees” in three dimensions, providing a more accurate and comprehensive view of below ground structures and making it an ideal alternative in areas with a high degree of underground congestion or complexity.
3D mapping is able to cover a large amount of area quickly.
3D Underground Imaging is much quicker than its two dimensional counterpart in identifying below ground structures, making it potentially more cost-effective when working in larger areas.
