Underground Imaging Technologies (UIT) develops and integrates hardware and software systems for mapping and investigating the hidden world below the surface of the earth. UIT deploys its technology to provide comprehensive services that improve the safety, accuracy and efficiency of operations related to the design, construction and management of the underground infrastructure.


Controlling variables in projects that create additional project risk and expenses, such as re-designs and change orders are a constant and on-going challenge for overall project management. Project owners are seeking, now more than ever, up-front cost effective services that minimize these variables throughout the life of the project.

Underground Imaging Technologies (UIT) is a geophysical services company specializing in 3D subsurface imaging and mapping. We can provide 3D subsurface imaging and mapping for projects that require accurate subsurface information before construction excavation begins as well as supplemental information for Level B SUE services.

UIT can deliver foot-by-foot depth in addition to X Y positioning information. The UIT system is capable of identifying non-metallic as well as metallic utilities and unknown features. We offer a comprehensive, GIS compatible deliverable that gives your project management team knowledge for effective pre-design that can reduce risk and maximize project dollars. Some unique components of our service include:
  • TerraVision II®, state-of-the art 14-channel GPR
  • MetaVision II®, multi- channel electromagnetic induction (TDEM)
  • SUE PLUS
  • SPADE® processing, proprietary data processing program, seamlessly integrates aerial maps, as-builts, level B and other mapped data with any geophysical data collected
  • 3D maps delivered in digital files for application to CADD or other design programs
  • GIS shape file


We welcome the opportunity to discuss further, the benefits of teaming with UIT on any of your projects.
