What is underground utility mapping?

Underground utility mapping helps to identify and record utilities for planning purposes on projects in a range of industries.

Utility mapping is the process of creating a map or plan of the underground utilities in a particular area. This can include things like water lines, gas pipelines, and electrical wiring. By understanding where these utilities are located, property owners and businesses can make informed decisions about planning and construction projects. Utility mapping can also help emergency crews respond quickly and safely to accidents or emergencies. If you are in the market for a new property, or are simply curious about what is lurking beneath your home or business, then underground utility mapping may be of interest to you. By understanding where these utilities are located, you can avoid potential pitfalls and make informed decisions about any construction or renovation projects. Read on to find out what the process involves and how we can help…

What is utility mapping?

Underground utility mapping refers to a survey in which geophysical techniques and modern equipment are used to create a digital image or representation of the objects that are located underneath the ground.

This type of survey helps to create a very detailed profile of that which is located below the ground. Some of the machinery and technology that is used includes ground penetrating radar (GPR), as well as electro-magnetic locators (EML). This equipment works by identifying reflected signals from objects, services, structures and utilities below the ground, and interpreting them into a detailed image.

What are the benefits of this technique?

One of the key benefits of underground utility mapping is that it does not involve any digging or risk of damaging any underground utilities. This means that the process is both non-destructive and safe to everyone involved in the project.

Because underground utility mapping is so accurate, the process often reduces planning time, as well as expenses and project delays. By using this particular technique, it is easy to comply with all the necessary health and safety regulations and avoid any unpleasant surprises along the way.
