The survey and mapping industries rely on specific equipment to create terrestrial and 3D position points and the distances between them. This equipment includes total stations, GPS receivers, 3D scanners, digital levels, subsurface locators, drones, GIS and other surveying software. Governments, municipalities and utility owners rely on survey and mapping to build as-built maps to show the utility location and also use the data provided to import into their GIS and other surveying software.
Accurate points of location, accurate data and versatile products are some of the challenges for this industry. GPS coordinates, depth of cover, condition of coating, the magnitude of cable faults and depth of EMS markers are just a few examples of the types of data fields required by the utility owner. Gathering this information with as much accuracy as possible while carrying a few pieces of equipment is key for success.
