Accurately Map Subsurface Utility Assets with GNSS Technology


Subsurface utility assets, such as water, gas, electricity, and telecom networks, are essential for our daily lives. However, locating and mapping these assets can be a challenging task due to their hidden nature underground. To address this issue, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology has emerged as a valuable tool for mapping subsurface utility assets.

GNSS technology enables accurate positioning and mapping of subsurface utility assets. By using a GNSS receiver and a survey-grade antenna, utility asset owners can map the location and depth of their assets with high accuracy. This allows them to make better decisions regarding asset maintenance, repair, and replacement. GNSS technology also enables faster and safer asset mapping, reducing the time and cost required for traditional manual mapping methods.

Recent innovations in GNSS technology have unlocked significant improvements in accuracy for subsurface utilities. By utilising the latest developments in GNSS, it is now possible to locate underground infrastructure with greater precision and efficiency than ever before. These advancements in technology have paved the way for more accurate mapping of underground assets, reducing the risks associated with excavation and ensuring that subsurface infrastructure is effectively managed and maintained.
