EuroGPR is committed to the adoption of best practices for the use of GPR technology in all applications. At present there are no recognized International Standards but a number of guidances and recommendations are used in different countries and across different GPR applications. EuroGPR provides some facts sheets for guidance in GPR surveys on different applications. For completeness , this page includes also references originated by other entities. EuroGPR takes no responsibility for their content nor endorses them but simply acknowledge their existence.
Utilities detection is certainly the biggest commercial application for GPR. EuroGPR statement below is the official recommendation of the association. Guidelines to the use of GPR, usually embedded into more general guidelines from utilities mapping, are listed below in an attempt to give members the widest possible picture; however. EuroGPR does not endorse such guidelines.
As a rapidly growing sector, the archaeological industry has come to consider GPR as a standard extension of the more established geophysical techniques, rather than a novel addition. The wide range of targets, and thus scope of responses which may need to be identified, means that survey strategies will vary greatly from one project design to another. However, for any given situation, the basic considerations and controlling physical limitations that are key to defining the "best" approach will typically remain the same. In a similar way to utility mapping, the current guidelines tend to be part of documents with a far wider scope, the primary examples of which have been listed below. Again, inclusion on this list does not necessarily imply EuroGPR endorsement of the document.
This document aims to provide guidance to EuroGPR association members to ensure they undertake GPR surveys on pavements in a safe and responsible manner. It is not meant to provide a specification of how every variation of pavement GPR survey should be performed. EuroGPR members are required to conform to any local or national specification for these surveys that may be already in place.
EuroGPR worked with the UK Government's Forensic Science Regulator (FSR) to ensure that Association Members are fully aware of the current developments of Quality Standards in scene of crime investigations and that these same standards are appropriate for our technology and methodology, based on Members' experience. This has led to the document here below.
