Utility Surveys

For utility surveys, GeoTek uses both Ground Penetrating Radar and Electromagnetic Induction (EMI) — two very complementary technologies. GeoTek uses a mid-range frequency GPR system to scan for utilities. This system is capable of generating both 2D and 3D representations of objects below the surface. GeoTek also uses an EMI-based SeekTech Line locator. The SeekTech is the only line locator that uses omni-directional antennas, guidance arrows and an easy-to-read mapping display to lead you quickly and accurately to the target line.

Utility Scanning Applications Include: EM Locator used to locate underground utilities.

  • Private Utility Locates
  • Locating Underground Pipes (Water, Sewer, Gas)
  • Locating Electric, Telecom, Fiber Optic Cables
  • Locating Underground Storage Tanks (UST)
  • Locating Metal and Plastic Pipes
  • Locating Voids
  • Locating Sprinkler Pipes
  • Locating Tunnels
