Subsurface Imaging

  • Unmarked grave location with Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR).
  • Classification of vacant areas within cemetery properties.
  • Buried feature detection utilizing EMC, Magnetometry and VLF
    metal detection.

Geophysical measurement technologies may be employed in pioneer cemeteries to identify discrete areas consisting of unmarked graves.

Survey of gravestones overlaid on existing plat map

The above thumbnail image links to a D-size drawing of a 1-acre cemetery. The precision survey of this cemetery site includes all visible surface features including grave markers, fences, driveway, trees, etc. The survey data has been referenced to and layered over a numbered plat unit base map that existed only on paper prior to this study.

This site survey was designed to integrate the original cemetery plat map, burials and records of ownership with all currently visible features enabling cemetery management personnel to understand and reconcile spatial errors in existing burial records.

Mapping this cemetery also provided the means to carry out subsurface imaging research that subsequently determined vacant areas for potential future cemetery use.
