What is Free Path and why are real time results so important?

The revolutionary Free Path data collection method allows to scan with your GS8000 on a freeform area and see the resulting heatmap of the subsurface plotted on a map in real time, at the desired depth range. This has an...

See More

Why are coordinate systems so important for GS8000?

When collecting data in Free Path mode, all digital findings and linework on the map can be directly output to CAD and GIS platforms, which rely on the data to be geo-referenced in the right coordinate system. Therefore,...

See More

What types of annotations can I use to digitize my findings with GS8000?

 

There are multiple types of annotations available:

  • Tags, which are categorized points input on the radargram at a certain depth
  • Points of interest, which are categorized points surveyed on the ground
  • Markers, which...
See More

How accurate are my GS8000 digital findings in the 3D space?

The 3D accuracy of the coordinates of a tag depends on 3 main factors:

  • How precisely the dielectric constant was calibrated, as this determines the translation between signal velocity to the distance travelled by the...

Can I use my GS8000 as a traditional GPR?

Yes. The traditional view on GPR data, that is, a full screen view of the B-scan, is always available with a simple two-finger swipe on the screen. It is also possible to run the GS8000 without absolute positioning, by...

See More

What field controllers can I use with my GS8000?

The recommended controllers are the latest models of iPad Pro WiFi + Cellular (with M1 processor) to ensure the best connectivity and processing power in the market, crucial for moving big amounts of data with ease. Any...
