Stockpile Volume Calculations with Drones

Knowing stockpile volumes on a regular basis is critical to optimizing a mine operation. They accurately indicate how much raw material was extracted and allow to effectively plan subsequent steps. Images from a drone acquisition are processed into a DSM (Digital Surface Model) which is the basis used for then applying volume calculation algorithms.

What do I get?

You will get a vector file (.shp) identifying the different stockpiles of interest with their corresponding volumes. These results will also be delivered in the form of a csv file to facilitate importing the values and easily monitor volume changes over time.

How can I use this report?

Accurate volume calculations will support mineral processing plant optimization and quarterly financial estimates of the mine activity.
