Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Over the years cemetery maps become inaccurate depictions of the cemetery property. A survey to evaluate those changes may be required to produce detailed drawings that are true depictions of the cemetery property.

We use a number of methods to aid us in obtaining the highest accuracy possible by combining GPS survey and onsite drafts to collect details of the cemetery property and infrastructure.

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.
