XYZ Mapping

The pipeline network, whether recently constructed or already in operation, is susceptible to surface movements and environmental factors throughout its lifespan. These external influences can cause the pipeline to deviate from its original designated trajectory.

To ensure accuracy and safety, an XYZ mapping inspection service becomes crucial for operators. This service offers valuable insights into the pipeline's actual trajectory during both the construction phase and regular operations.

For this purpose, an Inertia Mapping Unit (IMU) is employed. The IMU incorporates accelerometers and gyroscopes to capture precise data on the spatial movement of the inspection tool. This data is then utilized to plot the X, Y, and Z coordinates over time, providing a comprehensive representation of the pipeline's trajectory throughout its life cycle. By integrating IMU technology, operators can make informed decisions, identify potential issues, and maintain the integrity of their pipeline network effectivel

This data can be corrected further by DGPS coordinates or AGM’s installed by the operator. Such an Inspection provides following information.

  • GPS location of the feature
  • 3D Mapping of the Pipeline
  • Stress and Strain analysis in the Pipeline
  • Understand the movement of the pipeline if any

At Transpipe, we offer an advanced XYZ Mapping Service that utilizes IMU technology. This service can be utilized independently or combined with our Geometry tools or Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) tool as per the operator's requirements. The IMU technology ensures unparalleled precision, providing accurate and detailed information about the pipeline's spatial trajectory.

The results obtained from the XYZ Mapping Service are seamlessly integrated into our software called 'Sceptor.' This comprehensive report serves as a crucial component, enabling operators to access and analyze the data further. The extracted data can then be utilized with other relevant software, assisting operators in precisely determining the location and network of their pipelines. This seamless integration and flexibility empower operators to make informed decisions, enhance safety measures, and effectively manage their pipeline systems
