TerraFlow Utility Mapper

Enables locate and engineering teams to gather information about their underground world and integrate it with other business systems such as their Geographic Information System and / or Enterprise Asset Management System.

Capture your locate information accurately, the first time

The 2019 DIRT report estimated that there was in excess of $30 Billion dollars worth of damages in the United States and those numbers are trending upwards. 

Canada’s utility damage costs were more than $660 million with approximately 4000 to 5000 reported damages in Ontario alone. 

Accurate record keeping and high precision data collection of assets when they go in the ground is critical.  After burial, capturing and storing the required locate information helps tremendously in maintaining an accurate record of all assets and of the activities in the area that concern them.

Utility Mapper integrates directly with both high accuracy GNSS (GPS) positioning systems such as those provided by Trimble and Eos as well as high performance utility locate sets including those built by Rycome RadioDetection and Vivax-Metrotech.

One click locate and mapping technology captures ALL locate information and spatial information at the same time. 

Sketch functionality enables your locators to complete their sketch in the field or office staff to complete it as well.


Create the workflows you need to capture the assets you want with whatever attributes you require.

Complete your one call and private locate sketches in the field leveraging the data you captured. Build offsets and integrate your maps into your organizations locate reports.

Administer your workflows and your field and office team through the web system.

Integrate your Utility Mapper data with your asset repository. Synchronize with your GIS, export to CAD and more.
