Outdoor Field Marking & GPS Mapping (standard)
In addition to the on-site communications from our Project Managers, our clients receive field markings in the form of paint, pin flags, stakes, or any other method they request. We train our Project Managers to ensure that all the field markings they apply are clear and easy to understand. Additionally, each GPRS Project Manager creates a GPS Mapping sketch and produces our automated mapping deliverables for outdoor utility locates.
Deliverable: Field Markings and a submittal letter with links to download printable pdf map, kmz, and shp files.
outdoor Utility CAD
The GPRS Deliverables Department can create CAD files documenting our outdoor utility locating results. This service allows contractors, engineers, and owners to develop or update as-built drawings. Clients use these files for preplanning, to avoid utilities, or to document the history of their site on various CAD and GIS systems.
Deliverable: Dwg and/or dgn CAD files, background image jpeg files, and a pdf plan print out of the CAD sheets.
Drone Imagery CAD ADD On
GPRS has access to a drone pilot network that provides aerial imagery for your project site as an additional service across the country. Our drones allow us to create high-quality aerial images showing GPRS paint and markers on the ground and the on-site conditions at the time of flight. Drone flights can immediately follow right after we create our field markings.
Deliverable: Dwg and/or dgn CAD files, drone background image geo tif file, an obj mech file, an XYZ point cloud, and a pdf plan print out of the CAD sheets.
Indoor Utility Markings
For indoor utility locating, often these spaces require unique markings consisting of chalk and painter's tape where paint, sharpie, and other permanent marking are not desired. Our Project Managers are trained to make all their field markings clear, accurate, and understandable for anyone who may view them.
Deliverable: Field surface markings and photos as requested.
3D Model Virtual Tour
GPRS can implement 3D Cameras at your site to document all the interior findings. GPRS uses these cameras to create a floor plan of your site with our results added as linework or to create 3D views and point clouds. Our 3D virtual tour utility lets your team tour the location, add digital notes, and even measure inside the model.
Deliverable: 90 day access to the virtual tour site (this access can be extended as needed).
3D Model to 2D CAD
The Deliverables Department can take the 3D virtual tour data and develop a 2D tracing of the utility markings identified. GPRS Project Managers add relevant notes and can even overlay the clients' drawings if available. If there aren't existing plans, we can create a floor plan using the exports available.
Deliverable: Dwg and/or dgn CAD Files, background image jpeg files of floor or ceiling, pdf plan print out of the CAD sheets, a 3D XYZ point cloud, and 3D mesh obj files.
