An Introduction To The Science Of Ground Penetrating Radar

ground penetrating radar

If you are planning a large scale building project on a newly acquired piece of land, the chances are that you might not know exactly what you are facing in terms of what is located and structured under the ground.

You need to make sure that everything is workable and safe under the earth, as well as finding out what important infrastructure is located in what area.

Here at Lambert Locations we provide exactly the kind of ground penetrating radar services that are needed to solve these types of problems.

Hiring machinery and professionals is one thing but having a basic understanding of the process is always recommended as well.

Here is a brief introduction to the science of ground penetrating radar!

  • Essentially, ground penetrating radar is the tool of choice for people who need to quickly and efficiently identify the presence and location of metallic and non-metallic infrastructure hidden under the ground. It is fast, easy, and covers all the ground you need to be covered.
  • Using GPR locator technology, the tool builds a visual map of what the situation us under the ground, allowing people to fit what is already there in with the plans that they might have for future developments and projects.
  • We have a large range of ground penetrating radars in our arsenal, ranging from single antenna to dual antenna depending on how much ground you need to cover and how large your approach is.
  • One of the best advantages of ground penetrating radar is that is involves a fast start up and a very minimal setup. Data can start being collected mere minutes after arrival at the selected site.
  • An optional feature that lots of people like to utilise is the process of having all the collected data saved in jpeg format, which can then be transferred to a USB drive for further use in all of the reports that you are going to need to make during the process of your project.

So, if ground penetrating radar is something that you are going to be needing to utilise in the near future, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to arrange an appointment and a quote.

A member of the trained team will always be available for a discussion on your specific project’s needs.

We look forward to hearing from you and being able to help you out.
