The Gepard GPR ground penetrating radar manufactured by OKM in Germany is supported by a unique 3d software application runnable on Android Tablet PC's. This software is used to conduct ground surveys whether in 2d or 3d. Additionally it offers functionality concerning filtering, coloring as well as measuring the location and the depth of underground objects and structures.
OKM's multi-lingual Android application comes in the following languages:
The software application of the ground penetrating radar comes with an easy step-by-step wizard to prepare a new measurement and will find all the right settings to get prepared for your field survey. You simply select your preferred antennas, the type of measurement (2d or 3d), your local soil type as well as the maximum depth penetration. According to your input the application recommends how to adjust the depth regulator of the Gepard GPR.
The ground penetrating radar can be used to conduct simple 2d measurements of underground objects and structures like pipelines, tunnels, bunches of electrical cables, trenches, galleries and such. This scan capability is very useful to get a first quick view of the underground anomalies. After scanning in 2d you may want to create a more complex measurement in 3d as well. The graphical representation of a 2d survey is like a cross section throughout the underground and shows the reflections of buried objects.
The ground penetrating radar can also be used to conduct measurements in real 3d. In that way you may detect hidden foundations, cavities, bunkers, treasure caches, pipelines, tunnels, trenches as well as similar items and facilities. Due to the recorded data of 3d surveys you will be able to estimate the approximate dimension of a hidden object. Based on a higher volume of recorded data you get a much more precise view of sub-surface structures. The graphical representation of a 3d survey is like a volumetric view of the underground reflections of buried objects.
Gepard GPR's software application offers several filters and color schemas to improve the quality of your recorded data. By changing colors you may increase the contrast of your measured values to highlight certain reflections of your measurement. Some advanced filter options allow you to reduce noise and improve your data for further analysis.
The Android software application of the ground penetrating radar logs GPS data while recording. This will assist you in finding the location later on, even after a very long time between recording and data analysis. This feature can be turned off by disabling Android's location services.
The Gepard GPR software application is also available on Google Play. There is a basic fee that you must pay for the first time of downloading. Please keep in mind that this Android application is only usable in conjuction with the physical Gepard GPR ground penetrating radar. If you purchase your ground radar along with a Tablet PC from one of our distributors or OKM directly this application is already preinstalled and ready for use.
