MAPPING & MODELING

GPRS Deliverables Department
Deliverable Examples
Tracking underground utilities is impossible without accurate and thorough documentation. While public utility locations are typically available upon request, private utilities remain unknown unless a private locator is called. GPRS locates utilities, marks their location, and collects GPS coordinates on those utilities. We provide complimentary high-resolution maps in the form of pdf, kmz, and shp files with every outdoor utility locating project we perform. These maps are vital for keeping an accurate record of utilities’ locations for future construction work.

MAPPING & MODELING WITH THE GPRS DELIVERABLES DEPARTMENT

Communication is vital on a construction project. When it comes to buried utilities and structural reinforcement, a verbal recollection is not enough. GPRS can increase the quality of your communication and safety by providing precise and understandable markings or even a field sketch or map overlay. The GPRS Deliverables Department can take your communication and documentation to the next level by delivering GPS satellite image overlays and CAD files.

UTILITY LOCATING DELIVERABLES

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.

Video Pipe Inspection DELIVERABLES

Nassco report

In addition to the on-site communication received from our Project Managers, our clients receive filed markings in the form of paint, pin flags, stakes or any other method as directed by the client. Our PMs are trained to make all of their field markings to be clear, accurate and understandable for anyone who may view them.

wincan video

The Deliverables Department is able to create a CAD file that documents our results. This allows clients such as contractors, engineers, and owners to create or update as-built drawings for preplanning, utility avoidance, or to document site history and site changes and can be exported to a variety of CAD and GIS systems.

GPS Maps & Overlays

Our PMs are able to take the results of their scan and place them into a sketch. This level of communication is a way to quickly and visually convey the results of the subsurface investigation beyond temporary paint markings or pin flags.

Manhole Inspection Report

The nest level of reporting available involves an aerial satellite image overlay. These mapped findings are provided to the client in a KMZ file format as well as a PDF showing our findings over an aerial image along with our notes and depths.

CONCRETE SCANNING DELIVERABLES

CONCRETE Markings

Concrete embedded objects are visually marked on the surface of the concrete by our Project Managers. The Project Manager will indicate the locations using a marker, highlighting the areas that have an obstruction nearby. Project Managers can even note the depth of the reinforcement or conduit if requested.

Deliverable: Concrete surface markings.

Hand Sketch to 2D or 3D CAD

The GPRS Deliverables Department can take field markings and create a permanent record of our findings. Our CAD files document the vertical and horizontal positions of reinforcement. We can even overlay the existing floor plan with our findings. This information management ensures that scan results are well documented and can be utilized long after the concrete scan is complete.

Deliverable: Dwg and/or dgn CAD files, background image jpeg files, and a pdf plan print out of the CAD sheets.

3D Model Virtual Tour

GPRS utilizes 3D cameras to document our interior findings. The 3D model produced is a  virtual tour site that will allow your team to tour the site almost as if you were there yourself. This model enables our clients to add digital notes and even make measurements. The 3D Model utility also has options to export a floor plan, floor and ceiling composite image, point cloud, and mesh file of the areas captured with the 3D camera for an additional fee.

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 point cloud and floor plan composite image output and develop a 2D tracing of the concrete markings identified in the digital rendering. We add notes and can even overlay the clients' drawings if available. If existing plans do not exist, a floor plan will be created using the exports available in the virtual tour processing system we utilize that is also included in this CAD service offering.

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.
