Environmental Mapping

We provide environmental mapping services primarily for civil engineering, environmental consultants, universities involved in research, and industries.

Using this data, Er-Petro can provide, topographical maps , image-based maps, thematic maps, and change detection analyses to assist with assessing and monitoring many environmental scenarios.
The mapping technique integrates numerous datasets into a single composite layer in a Geographical Information System (GIS).

Environmental sensitivity mapping is used in land–use planning for minerals and other forms of development. It may be used both to aid, and explain decision–making in consultation processes.

Geological Mapping

Geological mapping is done to show geological features. Geological mapping generates essential information on the distribution, composition, structure, alteration, origin of rock unit and their evolution in space and time. The extensive and validated geodata on field work can be contributed for developing scientific hypotheses and models.

Our mapping division capabilities encompass the entire process from fieldwork and data capture to map production. Modern fieldwork and data management is supported by Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), this will help to complete the geological mapping and analysis of geologic observations.

At Er-Petro, all geological mapping information and other data sets are digitally managed and archives, using GIS maps and relational databases with high-quality map production.

Hydro Geological Mapping

Hydrogeology combines many aspects of science and engineering including geology, chemistry, physics, geophysics, biology, soil science, mathematics, and computer applications. Hydrogeology plays a key role in the planning, design, and implementation of many types of projects including groundwater resource conservation, development and restoration for domestic, agricultural, and industrial purposes.

Hydrogeological investigations have been completed for the development of groundwater supplies, geothermal resources, exfiltration of stormwater. Assessments of hydrogeological have also included contaminated sites, construction dewatering, development of groundwater flow models, and groundwater wells potentially under the direct influence of surfacewater (GUDI).

With you, our hydrogeologists work alongside our engineers, environmental consultants, planners, surveyors and GIS consultants to arrive at integrated solutions.

Er-Petro has global hydrogeological experience in groundwater resource assessment, aquifer storage and recovery (ASR), mine dewatering, aquifer depressurisation, groundwater management and environmental assessment, salinity, acid sulfate soils (ASS) and acid and metalliferous drainage (AMD).

We work together with you to develop solutions that are both innovative and cost-efficient.
