US: A Smart Probe device developed by Geospatial Corporation has accurately mapped a duct-bank of high voltage electrical lines installed under Interstate 90 in Chicago. Making use of their GeoUnderground software, along with Smart Probe, the company was able to provide accurate 3-dimensional pipeline mapping of conduits which were approximately 18 to 20 feet deep. Apart from being able to map both metallic and non-metallic underground conduits and pipelines, Smart Probe can also be used to map underwater pipelines 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. 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."
Mark Smith, Geospatial Corporation's CEO
