From geodetic to cadastral to topographic surveys, Surveyors deliver insights that are essential to engineering design, post-construction certification, real estate considerations, and more. Our utility locating and mapping services supplement a surveyor’s wok by delivering accurate data on what lies beneath the project area.

From geodetic to cadastral to topographic surveys, surveyors deliver insights that are essential to engineering design, post-construction certification, real estate considerations, and more. Clients rely on this data to be accurate and complete, however, mapping the contours of the ground and existing features on the surface, tells only half the story. Insights on the underground landscape are just as important and also required to deliver a complete picture.

Mapping the subsurface for surveyors

Our utility locating and mapping services supplement a surveyor’s work by delivering reliable data on what lies beneath a project area. We’ll combine a variety of tools and techniques such as Electromagnetic (EM) Induction and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to locate and mark all utilities including:

    • fibre optic, coaxial, and other communication lines
    • high and low voltage electricity
    • high and low-pressure gas mains and service lines
    • water, sanitary, and storm sewer pipes (mains and services)
  • switches and pressure plates
  • other complex infrastructure

Once located, we’ll integrate our data with a surveyor’s end product to deliver a complete picture of a project area.

Staying safe, transferring risk

Our utility locating services can help you avoid risk and liability regarding any activity that requires you to break ground – such as placing survey pins in the ground to mark the boundaries of a property. By securing a utility locate first, you can be sure to avoid buried utilities and eliminate potentially costly or dangerous results.

The multiVIEW Advantage


We’re dedicated to Damage Prevention

Our position in the marketplace allows us to attract and keep top talent. Staff members undergo a comprehensive training program coupled with extensive professional development and job shadowing. Certifications include Damage Prevention Technician (DPT) and Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) in addition to significant and ongoing Health & Safety Training. This results in safe, accurate locates delivered on time and on budget.


We apply diverse techniques to get the job done

Locating experience and abilities are diverse: technicians are trained on multiple techniques and technologies to carry out the work including Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Electromagnetic (EM) Induction, Vacuum Excavation, and CCTV Sewer Inspection. This means that no utility locating challenge is too complex, and we can even find buried assets that are traditionally considered “unlocatable.”
