Buried Pipe and Cable Locating and Mapping has to be viewed in three possible options:
A. Locating & Avoidance of Buried Metallic Utilities Prior any form of excavation: This is also referred to as a Level 3 survey which requires use of Electromagnetic Pipe & Cable Locators for identification and avoidance of buried metallic cables and pipes such as Live Power Cables, Armored telecommunication cables, metallic pipes amongst others. The same equipment can provide the capability to Route Trace metallic cables such as armored Optical fiber cables, signaling and telecom cables and is therefore also referred to as a Cable Route Tracer
B. Detection or Identification of Buried Metallic and Non Metallic Utilities Prior any form of excavation: This is referred to as a Level 4 Survey and requires use of a Ground Penetrating Radar also referred to commonly as a GPR. The use of a Dual frequency On Site Detection GPR allows identification of presence of both non metallic and metallic utilities such as buried optical fiber cables, Clay pipes, Plastic Pipes etc. This can be further extended by use of Survey Protocol and Professional GPR
C. Mapping of Buried Non Metallic and Metallic Utilities: Data acquired in field by use of GPR by following a defined survey protocol can result in quality data being processed into accurate maps of the underground utility assets or buried utility services which can be converted into As built maps in CAD.
