Exporting your pipeline inspection survey conditions and displaying them on maps with correlated exact footage is easily accomplished with the GIS module from flexidata. The GIS module has the ability to: import asset details from shape files, and personal or enterprise geodatabases; import visual layers, including raster files; fill survey header fields by selecting an asset from displayed maps; automatically highlight surveyed pipes to get a visual of completed surveys in an area; build a pipe flow layer to find the upstream manhole quickly; and select groups of assets to create survey projects. The module provides a handy toolbar to use inside ESRI Arcmap to allow quick viewing of pictures and movie files associated with the survey, including lateral surveys. 866.299.3150, pipelogix.com

LETS (Lateral Evaluation Television System) is an adaptable, reliable system that allows simultaneous inspection of laterals (up to 150 feet) and mainlines (up to 1,000 feet), with a fast, efficient lateral camera launch. LETS system’s low friction drive mechanism virtually eliminates cable wear, and the automated self-capturing push cable retrieval gets you out of tough situations easily, increasing reliability and product life. To make operation even more trouble-free, the LETS system easily adapts or retrofits to other systems. LETS boasts two push cameras – a self-leveling mini camera or a pan/tilt camera. 800.234.7205, ariesindustries.com

RapidView IBAK

PANORAMO SI provides a complete 360-degree view of the manhole after the inspection, similar to normal PANORAMO pipe segment files. It is available as an add-on to your PANORAMO system or in a stand-alone version. The 3D Optoscanner uses two high-resolution digital cameras with distortion-free wide-angle lenses. These optically scan the entire interior of the manhole in a few seconds in one single vertical run. The operator can view the digitally transmitted image data as if it were a live picture. The condition of the manhole is then assessed back in the office or directly on site. 800.656-IBAK, rapidview.com
