Detection and Localization of Culverts on a Road Stretch Using Ground-Penetrating Radar

In this study ground penetrating radar (GPR) is used to test its suitability and efficiency to locate culverts on a road stretch. The data are compared to the records in the database to see how complete and correct they are as well as to explore how GPR can contribute as a data collection method. With a culvert detection rate of 68.8%, the study shows that GPR is successful in gathering more information about the road drainage. Moreover, undocumented culverts have been found in the GPR data set, and a shift between the location documented in the NVDB and in the GPR data set has been discovered. This shows what a valuable contribution GPR can make in updating the information.
