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.


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.
