Mapping the potential field produced by stationary (often remote) current electrodes. The mapping is done by moving a potential electrode over the area. Also called equipotential survey and applied-potential method. In the equipotential-line method the line of points on the surface of the ground that constitutes the locus of a given voltage difference from another electrode is mapped with a ‘‘probe’’ electrode.
