Eos Locate™ for ArcGIS®

Map Underground Utilities with High-Accuracy

Accurately mapping buried legacy pipe has traditionally required dig spot holes, physically exposing the buried pipe, and then capturing its location. This is time consuming, expensive, and inconvenient for everyone who lives and works in the area. Are you ready to bring your buried assets to life without digging? Eos Locate™ for ArcGIS® is the world’s first real-time, survey-grade underground mapping solution for ArcGIS. With Eos Locate™ , it takes just a few seconds to locate and map buried infrastructure with highly accurate coordinates and depth below cover, directly into ArcGIS. This solution drastically cuts down time and labor spent in the field remapping existing utilities, while improving the accuracy of geospatial records.

Key Benefits of Eos Locate™

Fix Legacy Pipe Data

Legacy pipe data has always been more challenging to map than newly installed, exposed assets. With Eos Locate ™, you no longer have to choose between cost and accuracy. You can finally map buried utilities with centimeter-level accuracy easily and efficiently.

Remap Without Shovels

Eos Locate ™ drastically minimizes, if not eliminates, the need to physically expose pipes with expensive and potentially destructive spot digging. By combining Arrow GNSS, ArcGIS, and utility locator technology to map buried assets from above the ground, you’ll have the least invasive mapping method.

Ditch Blind Digging

Pipeline incidents cost millions of dollars per year, before factoring in the human cost of failure. When you have accurate, reliable maps of underground infrastructure, you can help prevent costly and unwanted liabilities.

  • Electric/Power
  • Gas
  • Water
  • Telecommunications
  • Pipeline
  • Cable TV
  • CCTV
  • Sewer

Although Eos Locate™ was originally designed to work with Esri’s ArcGIS Collector app, it now also supports the newer ArcGIS Field Maps app.

What Hardware and Software is Required for Eos Locate™?

Eos Locate™ is a free solution from Eos Positioning Systems. However, you must have all the required hardware and software components in order to use the solution.

What People are Saying About Eos Locate™

Matt Piper

“Knowing where your infrastructure is, visible or buried, is a major step toward taking full advantage of the capabilities of ArcGIS Online. With Eos Locate, anyone managing underground assets can finally raise their confidence level in the accuracy and true location of their data.”

Matt Piper

Global Director Industry Solutions: Utilities, Water, AEC & Infrastructure, Esri / CA, United States

Todd Chapman

“Previously, we were seeing that our old water mains could be off by up to 20 feet. With the new Eos Locate solution, we’re seeing that it’s accurate to under an inch.”

Todd Chapman

Senior GIS Analyst, Indiana American Water / IN, United States

Michael Cousins

“By using Locate, we’re literally able to achieve locating at half the time we originally planned for, and if we were to have used a locate service at this location, the process is a third of the time. We only had one person working with Eos Locate, versus up to three people touching the data in previous workflows.”

Michael Cousins

GIS Practice Lead, OHM Advisors / MI, United States

Tom DeWitte

"Eos Locate for ArcGIS is a game changer. It allows a locator who is already performing a required task, i.e., the call before you dig locate, to accurately map and directly load into ArcGIS the location of the existing pipe or cable. No digging, data prep, or data conversation is required for this new type of data collection.”
