MAPPING THE UNDERGROUND

Since its creation in 2007, Geospatial has delivered the highest quality pipeline location, data acquisition and mapping services available. By utilizing multiple technologies and refined data collection and management techniques, Geospatial effectively serves all pipeline sectors. Geospatial economically maps most pipelines to an accuracy of less than 10 cm (3.9 inches). Our technologies map HDPE – PVC or metallic underground pipes and conduits from 1 inch diameter and greater to depths of 50 feet (15 m). We map pipelines under rivers, lakes, ports and inshore waters with depths to approximately 180 feet (55 m).

DATA MANAGMENT

Geospatial recognizes that managing pipeline data in a useful and easily accessible way is critical to getting the most value from your infrastructure systems. To accomplish this, GeoUnderground™ was developed. GeoUnderground™ is your secure, web-based solution for a simple, effective cloud-based display tool for your 3D pipeline location and attribute data.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

Geospatial utilizes various data acquisition tools including in-pipe and surface-method technologies to locate and create accurate 3-D maps of underground pipelines. Our array of data collection technologies and extensive experience with difficult and unique situations helps insure your pipelines, whether underground, underwater or aboveground will be mapped accurately and effectively. Our services aim to save you time and resources, and mitigate risk from liability by making your pipeline data complete, accurate, and securely accessible via the web.

SPECIALTY SERVICES

Whether your pipelines are underground, aboveground or underwater, Geospatial has unique pipeline mapping and management solutions for the oil and gas, electrical, municipal and telecommunication industries. Our technologies map pipelines under rivers, lakes, ports and shallow in-shore waters such as the Gulf of Mexico to depths of 180 feet (55 meters). Additionally, our mobile ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) mounted mapping units are available for highly accurate (less than 10 cm or 3.9 inch deviation) long-range gas distribution/transmission projects. Our 3-D data acquisition and mapping services can save you time and resources by exceeding industry standards for accuracy without costly excavation or changing your preferred methods of sharing data.

Pipeline Mapping & Data Acquisition

Geospatial delivers the highest quality pipeline location, data acquisition and mapping services available. By utilizing multiple technologies and refined data collection and management techniques, Geospatial effectively serves all pipeline sectors. Geospatial economically maps most pipelines to an accuracy of less than 10 cm (3.9 inches). Our technologies map HDPE, PVC, metallic or any other type of underground pipes and conduits from 1 inch diameter and greater to depths of 50 feet (15 m). Geospatial also utilizes technologies to map pipelines under rivers, lakes, ports and inshore waterways with depths to approximately 180 feet (55 m).

Geospatial’s Pipeline Mapping and Data Acquisition technologies can be divided into several categories.

Geospatial’s Gyroscopic ILI Pipeline Mapping Technologies

Geospatial’s Smart Probe ILI™ In-Line Gyroscopic Mapping System enables the Company to accurately map subsurface pipelines from within the pipeline under a wide range of situations. Our In-Line Gyroscopic Mapping System is capable of mapping pipelines and conduits with diameters from 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) and larger to an unlimited depth. Geospatial has the capability of integrating our Smart Probe™ technology with pipeline video cameras to geo-reference each frame of video with accurate x,y,&z coordinates. This data and all mapping performed by Geospatial can be securely viewed and managed on your smart phone, IPad or laptop via GeoUnderground™, our web-based GIS portal.

Geospatial’s Electromagnetic Pipeline Mapping Technologies

Geospatial’s Smart Probe Freedom II™ Electromagnetic Pipeline Mapping Technologies accurately and efficiently map all types of underground pipelines and cables to depths of approximately 20 meters or 65 feet. In most cases, there is no need to excavate or to take the pipeline out of service. Utilizing this technology Geospatial has accurately mapped 1.25 inch HDPE (high density polyethylene) gas line that was installed without tracer wire while the gas line was live without interruption of service.

Geospatial’s Underwater Pipeline Mapping Technologies

Geospatial’s Smart Probe Immersion™ Underwater Mapping System™ enables Geospatial to accurately and efficiently map underwater pipelines and conduits of all sizes and types down to depths as much as 180 feet (55 meters) from the surface. In most cases, there is no requirement to enter the pipeline so that pipelines that are currently in service can remain in service. Depending upon site conditions and length of run, accessible underwater pipelines can also be effectively mapped utilizing Geospatial’s Smart Probe ILI™ system.

Conventional Pipeline Mapping Technologies

While Geospatial prides itself on its increasing collection of pipeline mapping and data acquisition technologies, we also rely on all available conventional methods of pipeline mapping. Our goal is to provide our clients accurate data on which they can base important decisions regarding the maintenance of their underground infrastructure in a safe and risk free manner.

Facilities Management/Infrastructure Data Leasing Model™

While Geospatial continues to provide location and mapping services of individual pipelines, the Company sees a rapidly growing demand to map underground pipelines and utilities within a complete facility such as a commercial development, a college campus, a complete utility distribution system, a DoD (Department of Defense) facility or a complete municipality.


Geospatial with its complete array of underground mapping technologies and its GeoUnderground™ infrastructure data management system is uniquely positioned to aggregate this data, providing the client with information as to exactly where their infrastructure is and where it is not. This information provides tremendous value to the client as they seek to make the best management decisions regarding the maintenance and expansion of their underground assets.

Infrastructure Data Leasing Model™

Geospatial offers its Infrastructure Data Leasing Model™ where the Company, along with a strong financial partner teams up to provide the resources, both technical and financial, to rapidly and efficiently collect mapping and geo-referenced condition assessment data of the underground infrastructure within an entire facility. The data is then leased back to the client for a specified term. At the end of that term the data reverts to the client for its continued use. Our Infrastructure Data Leasing Model™ greatly accelerates the time it takes for a facility owner to have access to this critical underground infrastructure information and begin enjoying the (ROI) return on investment derived from his immediate access to the knowledge generated by our data.

Public-Private Partnerships for the Location
and Mapping of Critical Infrastructure

Public-Private
Partnerships for Infrastructure

The network of pipelines in the US and around the globe continues to age while the need for management, expansion and rehabilitation of these critical assets grows. Currently, large sums of capital are budgeted by municipalities in an attempt to modernize and expand this infrastructure to comply with environmental standards and supply safe, reliable, utility services to tax payers. Unfortunately, revenue falls short of the capital needed for maintenance, upgrades, and expansion of aging systems. Geospatial Corporation has combined innovative technologies, data management and a new Public Private Partnership business model to provide an economical long-term solution to the problem of budget shortfalls and capital improvement requirements while providing a program to improve efficiencies and service levels in the management of the world's critical underground infrastructure.


Geospatial with its complete array of underground mapping technologies and its GeoUnderground™ infrastructure data management system is uniquely positioned to aggregate this data, providing the client with information as to exactly where their infrastructure is and where it is not. This information provides tremendous value to the client as they seek to make the best management decisions regarding the maintenance and expansion of their underground assets.


This approach to facilities management offers risk reduction, compliance with the initial stages of CSO programs, broad efficiencies, and a long-term revenue stream back to the municipal, state, or Federal agency. It offers value to all stages of the utility life cycle, by making detailed subsurface 3D information on all pipelines and conduits available in a secure web-based GIS format to utilities, engineers, contractors and planners.
