GPS & Mapping involves using cutting edge technology to complete underground surveys such as (GPR) Ground Penetration Radar, Radio-detection, EML (Electromagnetic Location) and many other procedures to provide highly accurate and reliable underground utility information. We will adopt PAS:128 specification systems for underground utility detection, verification and location (PAS:128 is described in more detail below). Once all the services are detected, located and sprayed up on the ground, we will use GPS to record all the services locations. A set of as-built drawings can then be generated from the collected data, resulting in 2D and 3D drawings in the form of AutoCAD and PDF.
PAS:128 specification systems focus on levels of accuracy, with survey category types ranging from Category A to D as described below.
An on-site utility mapping survey is completed using multiple geophysical instruments such as the GPR and EML to identify the exact position of all services.
Based on records obtained from utility providers the surveyor visits the site to verify and spray service locations on the ground as per drawings.
Obtaining all utility records from all the utility providers(GNI, ESB, Irish Water, Local councils, Eir, Virgin Media and other service providers.
