Underground Utility Locating and Mapping
Locating and mapping pipelines and other buried utilities is a key aspect and standard deliverable when Seisland creates field culture maps for geophysical programs. We are equally proficient in locating and mapping underground utilities as part of surveys done for other purposes.
Seisland’s pipeline locating personnel are accredited with the Enform Buried Facilities Locating course and are experienced in the field of underground utility locating and mapping. All field personnel are certified with Standard First Aid, H2S Alive, WHMIS, plus AMA Collision Avoidance Driving and ATV safety.
Seisland uses the latest pipeline-locating units for detecting the line’s tracer wires, and Trimble GeoXH GNSS units to map the location of the pipeline(s) or other buried utility to sub-metre accuracy. To meet the client’s specific requirements, the mapped utility lines can be displayed on a variety of maps: topographic, orthophoto, satellite imagery, government digital elevation model (DEM) or LiDAR data backgrounds, through the services of our field mapping and GIS department.
