GIS Pipeline Mapping and Governmental Report Submissions 

PAPS provide GPS verified field work and ArcGIS Mapping on pipeline systems.

PAPS will obtain GPS coordinates at known points along the pipeline and uses existing pipeline surveys to establish a centerline between known points. We also work with Pipeline operators to ensure the accuracy of the GPS positioning of the pipeline. 

PAPS creates digital shape files from the GPS data for use in GIS mapping systems, risk assessments and data analysis. 

We utilize only the most current technology to perform these functions, including the Trimble GeoXT handheld GPS device and ArcGIS, the Industry’s leading software package for GIS and Mapping functions. With our GIS knowledge and pipeline regulatory experience, we can provide numerous services for your company, including:
