Underground contracting has come a long way in recent years. As communities and buildings are being built, services like water, sewer, and gas are needed to allow people to perform their day to day activities. This research has led to the idea and design of a way to find the arc length of the pipe put into the ground at given points. The pipe length was estimated using the formulas for distance and arc length together with two different modeling methods: Lagrange interpolation and polynomial regression. Both techniques yielded similar results; however this may be situational and in other circumstances their effectiveness may vary.
