On a recent project, Geospatial Corp. provided accurate mapping services for two natural gas pipelines recently installed under multiple waterways in Texas, the Copperas Branch and Lake Lewisville just outside of Dallas.
Geospatial provided accurate 3D pipeline maps using its proprietary Smart Probe system, which allows the company to map various types of conduits and pipelines, no matter the material — metallic or non-metallic — size or depth. The Smart Probe is designed to map very deep pipelines under water as it doesn’t require a data tether or any communication with the surface.
“Geospatial now has the technologies to map most underground and underwater pipelines,” said Geospatial CEO Mark Smith. “Our growing data acquisition technologies, our continued enhancements to GeoUnderground, and the industry’s rapid acceptance of cloud-based information management platforms, positions Geospatial to emerge as a key player within the underground infrastructure management industry.”
The first section of pipeline in Texas measured approximately 2,100 ft, with a maximum depth of approximately 80 ft. The second section measured approximately 5,600 ft with a depth of more than 120 ft. After completion of the data collection, Geospatial verified the consistency of the mapping results and the findings were reported via GeoUnderground for effective and adaptable use of the information.
Designed around Google Maps Engine and the Google Maps API, GeoUnderground is the company’s cloud-based GIS platform that provides clients with a total solution to their underground asset management needs.
