How Laser Scanning Works with Ground Penetrating Radar

Colorized Point Cloud capturing

Colorized Point Cloud capturing GPRS's findings
& the surrounding environment.

TruePoint Scanning and Ground Penetrating Radar Services (GPRS) collaborate to provide the client with a valuable view of a structure, both visible and invisible.

GPRS locates underground utilities, or rebar and post-tension cables embedded in a structure, and mark their findings directly on the concrete. TruePoint’s scan technicians scan these markings, and our in-house engineers create a 3D CAD model showing the locations of GPRS findings, combined with the details of the surrounding columns, walls, floor, and ceiling. This pairing provides a permanent record of both the visible and invisible, and our clients avoid costly design changes and expensive, time-consuming repairs to the post-tension cables and rebar embedded in the concrete.

Because both Truepoint Scanning and GPRS value customer service, they look at this pairing as a way of enhancing the individual benefits for their clients, giving them additional, useful information. They work closely with their clients, around the entire country, to provide a high level of service, delivering the data the way that their clients want it delivered.
