offer two varieties of tile line maps. First, we can use our
GPS mapping field units to map new tile lines as they are
being installed. This information can be exported to many
popular mapping programs. We can also create custom paper
maps that could also include base information such as field
boundaries, background aerial photographs, digital elevation
maps, roads, streams, or any of a number of other layers.
Our other tile line services is the location of pre-existing
tile lines. To do this, we use aerial photographs such as
the one below to locate the tile lines that are already in
your fields. We already have a number of aerial photographs
in our archives and are adding more every day, call us to
find out whether we already know where YOUR tile lines are!
If we do not already have good photographs for your area,
we can get them.
pre-existing tile lines can be a big bonus for both the farmer
and the tile installer. Farmers can benefit from knowing where
tiles already are. Using these maps, existing tile lines can
be located and evaluated for use in a new tile system, improving
overall performance of a new system, and possibly saving money.
Tile installers using these maps no longer have to spend a significant
amount of time guessing where tile lines are before beginning
evaluation and installation. Armed with a GPS unit and these
maps, tile installers can quickly locate and evaluate existing
tiles, making the tile installer more efficient. The time saved
can be used to install additional tile, meaning more acres can
be tiled in a single season.
