Paper Abstract

The GPR data acquisition software is arguably one of the most important components of a Ground Penetrating Radar system. This software needs to ensure the capture of reliable and repeatable data by a diverse user community. Yet, too many commercial and academic systems provide a singleuser highly configurable interface for all applications. his paper describes the development of a configurable data acquisition and display pplication for use with ground penetrating radar. It is proposed that the standard GUI-based application that offers access to all controls and settings is distracting to many GPR end-users. It is therefore suggested that an application should present only the necessary controls to the end-user, and all other options should be inaccessible. This paper describes the development of such an application from a user requirements analysis to the design and implementation of an object-oriented, Java-based solution.
