ORBit has the expertise to perform detailled spatial inventory surveys including: sampling strategy, conducting the survey, interpretation, reporting and advice.

Our focus is on the spatial dimension, so not on static punctual measurements or soil profile investigations. For this we operate a number of state-of-the art proximal soil sensors in a mobile dGPS-localised configuration. The spatial data processing can reach from simple cartography with GIS to advanced geostatistical interpolation and simulations.

Our proximal soil sensors are based on geophysical principles and include several multi-receiver electromagnetic induction sensors and a stepped-frequency multi-array ground penetrating radar.

We have performed a large number of contracts. Since these are all situated in Belgium, more info is available on the Dutch version of this webpage. Click here.
