GPR Applications

GPR technology for infrastructure


  • Conduits, depth of cover, post-tension cables, rebar, slab thickness and voids
  • Concrete/structure investigations and mapping
  • Tunnels
  • Dams & Levees
  • Airports

Utility locating

  • Geotechnical engineering, cable routing, pipeline inspection and routing, tunnel lining, location of buried utilities
  • Searching for different metallic and non-metallic objects (local items, pipes, wires, underground tanks etc.), buried into the ground
Georadar for underground utility mapping
Ground penetrating radar for infrastructure

Geological investigations

  • Bathymetry – freshwater lake/riverbed investigations
  • Bedrock profiling
  • Karst investigations and sinkhole mapping
  • Stratigraphy studies
  • Water table studies
  • Sinkhole investigation
  • Mapping tree roots for engineering and construction purposes
  • Studying root systems of trees can provide valuable insights into the overall condition and resilience of a tree
  • Minimize the potential risk of infrastructure damage
