Paper Abstract

At the moment of carry out a study with ground penetrating radar (GPR) it is interesting to count with the support provided by other information sources. All the available information relative to the study area will be valuable in the subsequent phases of processing and interpretation of the obtained GPR records. Nowadays there is a logical trend to the integration of GPS devices. The decrease in size of these equipment, the increase of their accuracy and new wireless communication technologies (802.11, Bluetooth,...) encourage this incorporation. GPR/GPS integration allows an accuracy positioning of the radar data under favourable conditions. Furthermore it brings the possibility to import this data into a geographic information system (GIS). This study deepens the process of integration of both technologies applied to road evaluation. To the accomplishment of this study, a dual frequency (L1+L2) RTK GPS, two Bluetooth GPS receivers (with SiRF chip) admitting both real time differential corrections (SBAS), and a GPS receiver with post-processed sub-meter accuracy were used. As regards GPR equipment, shielded 500, 800 and 1000 MHz antennas were used in different configurations.
