Nowadays drone survey refers to the use of a drone (or UAV – advanced aerial vehicle) equipped with a downward-facing highly rich camera to capture images of a site from different vantage points. We are using photogrammetry system software can relocate geo-referenced 3D maps, contour lines digital terrain models or digital surface models of the mining site.
Mining Survey operators can also easily extract the precise volume of stockpiles or areas to be excavated. Some advanced mining software can also generate industry-specific data such as safety guide rule and term heights; crests and toes; road boundaries; width; crests; slope, length, height and elevation change.
Apart of this, artificial intelligence in the software can automatically highlight those that do not comply with standards or constitutes a potential threat to the workers’ safety.
