TerraCarta, specialist in detection techniques
In order to search and detect underground utilities, you can dig trenches at random; but alternatively there is also a wide arrange of non-destructive detection techniques available. The power of these techniques are not in the actual technique or equipment alone, but rather in the knowledge of the user inside of the area of concern. Combining information is very important, because through combining the results of our detection research with information from existing maps, more insight can be given into the detected results. This renders us able to create a map of the exact position of a utility. Other than that, detection methods can be influenced by local circumstances, so by confirming our results with other information sources, a more trustworthy image can be created of the underground situation. In the article “GPR – ‘soil scan’ or utility investigation?” we carefully explain how we combine these techniques and why this benefits us.
