Buried utility and objects can pose problems when their precise underground location is unknown. With geophysical methods we can detect and map them very precisely. Most of the locating equipment is operating through the principles of electromagnetism, designed to detect electrically conductive materials.
This application has been developed especially to back up engineering projects planning that will be developed in locations where the subsurface may contain different types of objects and active or deactivated utilities. Early detection of electrical cables or active pipes can reduce the risk of unforeseen work interruption and thus minimizing the risk of damages.
