Geospatial Holdings utilizes proprietary 3D sensing technologies to locate, map, perform condition assessment and detect leaks of underground pipelines.

Geospatial’s technologies include smart probes which can be deployed from within the pipeline. When coupled with commercially available condition assessment technologies or enhanced geo-referenced underground imaging technologies Geospatial is capable of creating 3-D geo-referenced maps showing the accurate position of both the pipeline and the anomalies within the pipeline.

All data derived from Geospatial’s sensing technologies is geo-referenced allowing the data to be managed and viewed in 3D within the Company’s robust web-based GeoUnderground GIS (geographic information system) Portal.
