Access all site operations from a safe distance while improving the efficiency and effectiveness of critical data collection with drones and 3D-mapping
Smooth the permitting and application process
Pix4D software generates high-resolution maps and accurate, interactive 3D models that the planning committee can share with federal and state legislators to smooth the permitting and application process.
Optimize site development
Optimize the layout of the mine facilities and infrastructure using a regularly updated basemap created with Pix4D technology. Accurate maps and 3D models help site planners and authorities make decisions and ensure development phases are completed as anticipated or to identify and mitigate issues as they emerge.
Update production progress and forecasts frequently
Detail matters in mining. Pix4D technology produces more precise 3D stockpile models with highly accurate volume measurements than ones interpolated from simplified shapes. Not only are calculations of reserves based on geospatial data incredibly accurate, they also provide real-time updates on production progress and forecasts, stockpile sizes, and composition.
Reduce operational risk
The ability to forecast geotechnical hazards quantitatively – such as rockbursts, water inflows and slope stability – for design or real-time monitoring applications provides an overall hazard estimation to help better understand risk.
More informed decisions
Understand complex situations faster with rapid data collection and 3D mapping. Pix4D software leverages computer vision, image-analysis and machine learning to create immediate, repeatable results ready for analysis and decision-making.
Fast and accurate drone mapping in action
Fast and accurate volume measurement – the reason why half of the largest mining companies use Pix4Dmapper
Nearly half of the biggest mining companies use Pix4Dmapper software as part of their mining workflow. They claim that by applying photogrammetry workflow and Pix4Dmapper software, they achieve measurement accuracies of around 2~5% for their stockpile volumes...
Drone-mapping streamlines surveys in mineral production operations
Mineral production operations rely on knowing, with a high degree of accuracy, how much material is available at any given time for inventory and tax purposes. Drones and the professional photogrammetry software Pix4Dmapper increase accuracy and streamline surveys in mineral production operations.
Supporting Blasting Operations with UAVs
Using unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) imagery and mapping software Pix4Dmapper, the Explosives Risk Managers company supported quarries in Virginia and Ohio: accurately measuring stockpile volumes and excavated materials, measuring borehole locations, and monitoring blast sites, all at a low cost, high accuracy and in completely safe worker conditions…
Explore a digitized quarry
This quarry is located in the middle of Switzerland, in the canton of Vaud. This 285-image dataset was captured with a SODA camera on a senseFly eBee drone. The project quality report gives a preview of the generated results, calibration details, and many more project quality indicators.Explore
