As research utilizing ground penetrating radar (GPR) systems is undertaken a wide range of problems and conditions is undertaken. Typically, before research of this type is funded, the client needs some degree of assurance that the research in question has a "good" chance of success. In this paper we address the topic in three steps. First, we discuss what one can reasonably determine from the client's description of the problem, utilizing pictures, sketches, etc., which indicate the chances of successfully solving the problem. Second, we discuss the minimum measurements that can be made on-site in order to improve the probability of success without actually performing the survey. Finally, we discuss the procedures/methods which we have developed which directly relate to the problem being addressed so that success will be assured while keeping the data collection time, the data processing time, and the data analysis time all listed below, to a minimum.
