Whenever you are using you RD locator to locate and trace a buried utility you are performing a utility survey. 

RD Map+ organises your locating surveys into jobs.


Job definition

A job is a collection of one or more* utility surveys carried out at a single address/location on behalf of a specific customer.

The image below show a job form with 2 different power cables being located.




The resulting job map can be exported as a KML, CSV or SHP* file.



* A premium license is required to be able to add more than one utility survey to a job and to export SHP files.
