GeoSearch – Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) for Pipeline Detection & Augmented Reality (AR) Visualization

    Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a technology that can help to visualize underground objects without destructing the surface. This project aims to collaborate with the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) and GeoSearch to quantify the value of this GPR-based underground mapping service in relation to the productivity and cost of construction to replace old pipelines with new pipelines, which includes quantifying the financial details of the existing design/construction processes of pipeline replacement at selected sites, and examining the value of the underground digital twin model for future pipeline maintenance.
