Subsurface Surveys

Utility Locating

INITIAL. Geomatics & Land Surveys will locate the exact position and depth of subsurface utilities including gas lines, water lines, electrical lines, communication lines and storm & sewer lines. Old maps and as-built drawings are often unreliable and not updated. Damage to underground infrastructure can be expensive and potentially dangerous.  

Void Detection

INITIAL. Geomatics & Land Surveys will locate the exact position and depth of subsurface voids and sinkholes. UltraGPR can image cavities of all sizes and depths in soils, beneath asphalt roads and beneath concrete slabs and floors. Subsurface voids are often caused by inadequate soil compaction, poor soil drainage and damaged utilities. 

Bedrock and Water Table Profiling

INITIAL. Geomatics & Land Surveys will determine depth to bedrock, depth to water table, bedrock profile and water table profile. Civil infrastructure projects incorporate this information in order to determine drainage patterns and sediment densities and develop a logical grading plan.  

Lake and River Profiling (Bathymetry)

INITIAL. Geomatics & Land Surveys combines UltraGPR with acoustic sub-bottom profilometers to model freshwater lake and river bottoms. 

Ice Road Profiling

INITIAL. Geomatics & Land Surveys has been active in the arctic since 1991. Our proprietary GPS systems are able to quickly and accurately profile snow and ice thickness prior to  heavy equipment activities. Ice roads, airstrips, drill pads and any activity on ice is dangerous and can have dire consequences. UltraGPR removes any doubts.
