WHAT IS GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY?
Geophysical survey techniques utilize noninvasive sensing equipment to reveal a 3D model of what is under the surface of the ground. From an organized onsite survey through computer-based data processing, geophysical data can be analyzed for a variety of attributes. This systematic form of spatial data collection and analysis is useful in a wide variety of industries including archaeology, forensics, engineering, utility locating, geology, and environmental sciences. Through a better understanding of this widely-used technology, industry leaders can lessen long-term costs and limit the damage to historical, cultural, and environmental resources.
