Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Ground Penetrating Radar is non-intrusive, sub-surface imaging that looks underground to develop a picture profile of what lays below the surface. We use GPR to determine the location of unmarked graves, headstones and burial vaults. We can also locate lost or available grave space, markers that have moved and verify casket positioning.  For cemeteries with missing or destroyed burial records, a GPR survey can produce a composite sitemap of an area that would indicate grave locations, positions, and their depth.

Using Ground Penetrating Radar, we can investigate and map sub-surface areas for vault and foundation locations, mass burial sites, underground utility cables, buried pipes and pipe routes.

The two pictures you see below show six dated headstones from a Revolutionary Pre-Civil War Era cemetery.

The picture on the left shows the dates on the headstones and a GPR profile image to the right show the same six burials as they appear on ground radar.
