Utility detection for avoidance and mapping

Uncovering Data, Digitalise Reality

Surveyors, utility companies and contractors, now more than ever, need accurate, highly reliable, and up-to-date information – available for immediate use. Using the latest technology, detecting underground features becomes a simple and efficient task, increasing your safety and the protection of buried utilities. Our detection solutions provide a truly streamlined process from the field to the office, and back again, able to cover the entire utility detection, avoidance and mapping workflow with integrated solutions.

Cable avoidance

Undertaking any excavation will inevitably bring site workers into close proximity to underground utilities. Consideration should always be given to knowing the exact location of all buried utilities before and during the excavation process.

DD SMART Utility Locators Solution

The new Leica DD SMART utility locator solution, including the DD230/220 cable locator series, DX Shield software and signal transmitters is the only complete portfolio of detection solutions for utility professionals and anyone who is breaking ground.

How to locate utilities – 6 levels of utility detection

Continuously changing environments and increasing populations bring the need to construct more buildings and renovate existing ones. We can see the change easily by looking at the infrastructure. Speciality utilities must be maintained or repaired continuously. The main challenge for this change is not knowing the accurate position of the utilities.

How cable locators work – Principles of buried utility detection

Undertaking any excavation will inevitably bring site workers into close proximity to underground utilities. Consideration should always be given to knowing the exact location of all buried utilities before and during the excavation process. To safeguard against utility strikes, a cable locator is used for detecting the presence and proximity of buried utilities.

Utility Tracing

Utility surveying means exact detection and mapping of the utility. Asset owners precisely want to know where their infrastructure is. For future planning and utility maintenance, they need to have their utilities mapped digitally.

Uncovering underground utilities requires the use of different methods and products to fit different situations. There are variety of technologies that can be used for...

Leica DX Manager Mapping

One central dashboard for all the Leica Geosystems detection solutions

Utilities Detection and Mapping

A utility map shows the positioning and identification of buried pipes and cables beneath the ground. Combine mapping process with a topographical survey and the results will provide you with a comprehensive detailed map of utilities.

Extensive 3D utility mapping

An extensive utility detection and mapping process allow an accurate and complete recording of underground utility assets reducing the risk of third-party damage. The use of multi-frequency and multi-channel radar technology, permits to scan and map all the underground assets both in narrow and extensive areas with a fast and easy process with very high accuracy and significant resource reductions.
