An interesting project featured lately by UAV industry leader, Pix4D, reveals how UAV data collection helped an engineering and survey company charged with supporting the mineral production processes at a mining site in the U.S transition to drone-based surveying.
From Pix4D… Using drones, drone imagery, and image data to support mining, quarry, or mineral production operations (such as volume calculations and grading compliance measurements) is increasingly touted as the safer, faster and more accurate data gathering approach. Mineral production operations managers can then use such data to digitally map existing conditions and measure stockpile volumes for inventory management, production forecasts, and auditing.
GEO Jobe, a Nashville, Tenn.-based geospatial data provider, helped an engineering and survey company charged with supporting the mineral production processes at a mining site in the U.S transition to drone-based surveying. As part of the transition process, GEO Jobe compared the UAV-based stockpile data gathering and processing practices to the methods previously used by their client.
