GEOSPATIAL IS WITH YOU AT EVERY STAGE OF MAPPING AND MANAGING YOUR UNDERGROUND INFRASTRUCTURE
PLANNINGTo implement a successful Asset Mapping and Management Plan we begin with a project plan and obtain any currently available documentation. We then assess the goals of our client including required detail and accuracy and to determine the correct technologies needed to provide the proper deliverable to the client.
ACQUIRINGEach Geospatial Project Manager is thoroughly trained to utilize each of Geospatial’s data acquisition technologies. Our technicians are skilled and trained on both data acquisition and GIS data input into GeoUnderground. Most data processing is automated and occurs directly in the field. Some types of data are transmitted back to our facility for processing.
MANAGINGGeoUnderground is completely customizable to your needs. It functions as a stand-alone GIS application or it can seamlessly integrate with existing enterprise GIS platforms. Geospatial easily downloads and exports AutoCAD® drawings, ESRI® shape files, geo-referenced video and photos and many other formats. GeoUnderground is custom designed around the Google Maps API and Google Maps Engine providing unparalleled content, security and mobility.
Underground Infrastructure Mapping and Data Acquisition
Geospatial was founded on the basis of mapping underground infrastructure. Through the combination of pipeline locating expertise and proprietary technology, Geospatial is able to deliver clients accurate and comprehensive maps of their underground infrastructure. The value of this emerging concept is expounded by the continual problems caused by aging and crowded underground infrastructure. Geospatial eliminates the risks and expense caused by poorly located and mapped infrastructure by creating accurate 3-D digital maps of underground pipelines.
Through our innovative and proprietary data acquisition technologies, we map all types of underground infrastructure including oil and gas pipelines, water, sanitary, pressurized and non-pressurized, metal, non-metal, fiberglass, plastic, electrical, CATV, telephone, steel, ductile iron and much more.
Our combination of technologies collects this data via gyroscopic techniques, electromagnetic sensors, radar, microwaves, infrared, acoustic detection and other hi-tech capabilities whether it is underground, above ground or underwater.
Geospatial has various sensors for locating pipelines and other infrastructure and leaks from water, natural gas or oil that can be operated from either a vehicle, an ATV, or from an aerial platform such as a helicopter, a fixed wing aircraft or a UAV (un-manned aerial vehicle).
Facilities Management Data Leasing and Consulting Services
Geospatial specializes in above and below ground facilities management programs that provide perpetual support to locate, map, and manage critical underground infrastructure throughout facilities, municipalities, educational campuses, military compounds, or gas and electric distribution systems spanning thousands of miles. Geospatial is uniquely positioned to aggregate this data, providing the client with information as to exactly where their underground infrastructure is and where it is not. In addition, Geospatial offers its Underground Infrastructure Data Leasing model where Geospatial, 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. Our Underground 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.
GIS/Data Management: GeoUnderground
Once Geospatial collects the underground infrastructure data, it is digitally stored and securely maintained for easy access whether you are in the field, on the road or in an office. Geospatial has developed the ultimate in underground infrastructure mapping software with its GeoUnderground application. GeoUnderground is a secure, cloud-based, 3-D mobile mapping application enabling users to view x,y,z coordinates, start/end points, extents, diameters, areas, and even upload geo-referenced videos and photos with attached GPS data such as utility right-of-ways and pipeline interiors. Geospatial is accessible through the Internet on computers, tablets or other hand-held devices via a conventional browser. Learn More
