3 Benefits of Time-Slices for Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

By January 5, 2017 2 Comments

There are many ways to visualize ground penetrating radar data. One very popular way over the last 10-20 years has been to resample GPR profiles into time slices (also known as depth maps). In this video, I review 3 benefits of time-slices:

1. Time-slices can help you trace linear features, especially if they bend.
2. Time-slices can help you delineate individual targets of interest in congested subsurfaces.
3. Low-amplitude reflections are sometimes easier to identify in time-slices than in profiles.

These benefits do not absolve the practitioner of looking at profiles. Time-slices should enhance the interpretation after profiles have been processed, analyzed and interpreted.

I apologize for the lighting…but I deliver on the value!!!! is an online training platform for Ground Penetrating Radar that helps civil engineers, utility locators, and others learn about GPR through fun and engaging courses and coaching.

    Hello, please I need help with my timeslice, I don’t have software to do it, and don’t know how to do it. I need it urgently for my MSc thesis. Thanks
