Earth Resistivity Tomography (ERT)

Multiple earth resistance profile measurements are fused to create 2D sections and 3D profiles of electrical resistivity through the ground, commonly used to determine the depth of known features.
The team at work

This technique is similar to earth resistance, but uses lines of fixed electrodes to create 2D slices and 3D views of changes in earth resistance at different depths. Typically, this can be used to model the depth and shape of known features, such as buried landforms or extraction pits.


Our techniques

Learn more about the techniques that we use.

Earth Resistance (ER)

Measures the difficulty of passing an electric current through the ground. Effective for detecting features with different moisture content from the surrounding soil, such as foundation remains and ditches.


Measures the ambient magnetic field strength. Effective for detecting features with magnetic contrast from the surrounding soil, including burnt features, pits and ditches.

Multispectral Imaging

Primarily used in precision agriculture, environmental surveys and forestry, this specialised sensor can also detect cropmarks caused by archaeological and other subsurface features.
