GPS DATA COLLECTION FOR GAS DISTRIBUTION
Ohio and Virginia
As part of a strategic gas pipeline safety initiative supporting damage prevention and government regulatory compliance, Woolpert located and mapped gas lines throughout Ohio and Virginia. Using Trimble GPS equipment paired with a SPAR unit, survey crews determined the precise locations of main lines, service lines and meters. Mapping one neighborhood at a time, Woolpert captured high-accuracy geospatial and attribute data for over 25 million feet of gas pipeline. The team performed QA/QC as the data was collected, after which it was uploaded to a digital asset management system to promote the efficient management and maintenance of the distribution infrastructure.
