Keep a digital twin of your mine up-to-date in the cloud, make volume and distance measurements, and give your team access with view-only accounts.

Export point clouds for mine planning

Generate georeferenced orthomosaics and classified point clouds, and easily export and use them in your existing mine planning tools.

Mineral exploration made easy

Capture your entire site in minutes, and empower your geology team with georeferenced maps and point clouds to help them identify areas of interest. Inspect and map hard-to-reach areas, and create rich 3D models to identify elevation changes across your mine.

Track inventory over time

Calculate the volumes of individual stockpiles in any scan and compare to previous flights to track inventory changes over time. Leverage Site Scan’s automated volume reporting feature to calculate the changes at specified intervals for you.

Improve site planning and coordination

With drones, you can survey your site more often than ever before. With weekly or even daily drone flights, you can create up-to-date models of your mine for better blast planning, including pre- and post-blast surveys. All you have to do is fly your site, process your model, and export your point cloud data into your existing mine planning tools.

Mitigate project risk

Capture your site as often as you need to and store every photo, map, and model in Site Scan’s cloud-based dashboard. With unlimited processing and unlimited storage in Site Scan, you can have detailed aerial documentation of your project at key milestones, helping you reduce risk, get answers, and resolve conflicts quickly.
