Cover-meter is a good complementary technique to Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scanning as it can provide an estimate of bar diameter and more accurate depths of cover. Cover-meter results are usually used in conjunction with GPR to supply steel detail on structures.

Depth of cover and bar diameter measurements are usually provided on CAD drawings along with the results from a GPR survey, as well as any other techniques that are used on site.
