Applications of our techniques
High quality and trustworthy research, that is TerraCarta’s main goal. Our dynamic company has the know-how and experience to operate in a variety of fields. Because of this, there is no field where TerraCarta does not have an innovative method to map the underground situation.
The newest techniques are used to locate utilities. We use EML, GPR and trench digging to locate utilities in a precise manner. The data is then surveyed and digitally processed in order to correct and revise the existing maps of the underground situation. When the situation of the utilities is unknown, TerraCarta will also locate and map them.
Utilities that are put through a HDD (Horizontal Directional Drilling) pipe are often damaged during excavation, building and dredging activities. In order to prevent extra costs and potential delays, TerraCarta can map HDD pipes. Through the Dutch national database for underground utilities we look for the utilities in question, and then we use our detection methods, like EML and GPR, to find the exact location of the start of the drilling. After that, we put together a plan in order to fully map the pipe. If water is involved, we often use a raft or boat.
