4 Benefits of Using GPS When Collecting GPR | Ground Penetrating Radar

By August 16, 2018 No Comments

Here are 4 benefits of using GPS while collecting GPR data. Specifically using short transects instead of long, winding, awkward, non systematic lines.

1) Data is more manageable and interpretation becomes easier.

2) It increases safety in high traffic areas.

3) You can easily go back and fill in gaps in your data.

4) If your GPR shuts down your there is a problem…you are likely only going to loose the last transect you did. If you do a winding 2 mile transect and in the last 50 feet your battery goes down…Your Done!!!

I hope this helps and if you have any questions about using GPS with GPR…contact us at
