Some GPR manufacturers produce radargram files with identical filenames across different projects or survey grids. Some users like to process multiple projects or survey grids in the one GPR-SLICE project. This means there will be conflicts due to identical filenames. This video explains how to get around this problem.
This video goes for two hours and should be the first thing ANY new GPR-SLICE user watches. It introduces almost everything you need to know in order to get started with GPR-SLICE.
This video assumes you are using either GPS or robotic total station navigation for your GPR data. If you aren’t using these methods, please consult the user manual, check out the other GPR-SLICE training videos, or contact us for face-to-face training via Skype (which is included in the price of your GPR-SLICE licence). We still recommend watching this video, though, so you get an understanding of the software and data processing/filtering basics. Every GPR-SLICE user should watch this video, even if they aren’t processing GPS- or TS-based GPR data.
To install GPR-SLICE, please follow the instructions here.
If you use anti-virus software, you may have troubles opening or updating GPR-SLICE. We have observed problems with AVG Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Anti-Virus, and BitDefender. You will need to add the C:\slice\v7.0\gprslicev7.exe file and/or the entire directory at C:\slice\ into your anti-virus software’s white-list to override the anti-virus software.
After watching this video, we strongly recommend you check out the following tutorial videos:
The addendum to the introduction video which explains the newer, more streamlined way of regaining your data and performing frequency filtering (this is also included at the end of the above video).
Hyperbola detection in GPR-SLICE (this requires the BridgeDeck module for GPR-SLICE and allows semi-automatic detection of hyperbolic reflectors in radargrams, which is useful for those doing ground-penetrating radar surveys on concrete slabs in order to map re-enforcing bars (“reo”)).
Zara Dennis has lived a hugely-varied life, and she’s only just getting started. In 2016, Zara combined her passions for science, flying, and teaching, and created a new educational outreach programme known as SciFly. Zara flies to rural schools throughout Australia, spreading the joy that is STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).
