Omega Mapping Stories

Beneath the dirt lies more than roots and rocks. Looking through the dirt you will see years of history. History that has been preserved hidden away from everyday living. History that tells a story and deserves to be heard. This is where we gathered our stories.

"You just saved us $8000..."

That's what the Superintendent told me Friday November 12 as we wrapped up a busy morning in his middle Georgia community. In rapid time, using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Omega Mapping Services pinpointed a water leak on a state road, a pipe under a railroad, another under the interstate plus we confirmed the water system around his city square...

A forgotten cemetery in a cemetery.

by Omega Mapping | Posted: 12/5/12 | Cemeteries

As we scanned 3 acres in the back of a 24 acre municipal cemetery with our Ground Penetrating radar we discovered a "forgotten cemetery." There were no markers of any kind, no monuments, no crosses, no stones, no "thing" to identify it as ground with interments. To make it even more astounding: There were more than 150 burials on the forgotten...

To beat the morning fog Ben and I flew over Sunday night to Meridian, MS...smooth flight. Checked-in to a pleasant hotel...enjoyed a nice meal. From time we landed 'til time we took-off, truly some of the friendliest folks I've ever had the pleasure of meeting...not one negative about Meridian.

Monday morning bright and early...drove 50 minutes to De Kalb, thanks to GPS found the exact location of a smaller family cemetery...

What would you say?

by Omega Mapping | Posted: 08/17/12 | Cemeteries

Was back at the rural church cemetery with the Cemetery Committee walking around checking my work. Couple of months before we scanned the cemetery with Ground Penetrating Radar, found about 45 unmarked burials in less than 2 acres...pretty typical. The committee also contracted us to map the landmarks, the burial, markers, trees, fencing, buildings, etc. so they could know where the unmarked burials were located...

After four + days of scanning, we found 150 years of buried Atlanta! We scanned so much I thought we were going to find Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh...we found everything else with Ground Penetrating Radar...except what we were looking for...a leaky water pipe.

Gonna bring a highway through there...

by Omega Mapping | Posted: 01/22/11 | Cemeteries

As a highway is expanded to help ease traffic, it will cross a family cemetery in a medium sized central Georgia town. Stood at the cemetery site yesterday taking measurements because this town honors its heritage rather than forgets it.

Before the road will be expanded they want to relocate the cemetery...

GPR In Someone's Backyard; an 1800 Family Cemetery

by Omega Mapping | Posted: 01/17/11 | Cemeteries

...really couldn't scan much today, 40 degrees and spitting rain.

Yet we were "out in it," at least for awhile, in a family cemetery in Middle Georgia. A modern neighborhood association, in a very nice community south of Macon is considering mapping and Ground Penetrating Radar scan of the early 19th century cemetery which they drive pass each day It was an amazing site. The site was more-or-less forgotten for more than 150 years....

by Omega Mapping | Posted: 12/18/10 | Cemeteries

Yesterday (Dec 17) was called to help a surveyor "give" acceptable margins for a new pipe installation for a Distribution Box for a new septic field from a church.
No problem-right?

It becomes complicated when you realize the 2" line had to run:...

As it is with most jobs...eventually you'll end up behind a desk doing the creative part...today I'm indoors wishing I was out. Cemetery design is a fulfilling task and I enjoy that part of Omega Mapping services too. But...on a day like this, one wants to be out in the November sun.
