Remote sensing in mining

In the area of “Mining & Quarrying”, remote sensing by means of UAV offers a huge variety of possibilities for the objective and cost-effective documentation of quarries and stock-piles, to increase the effectivity as well as operational safety and to simplify workflows. We offer you a complete bundle consisting of UAV, camera, software for planning, evaluation and calculation of volumes as well as a training of several days’ duration to be ready for using the system immediately. Everything by one partner!

Stock-pile survey

UAV and VolumeX – [perfect partners]³

Calculating the exact volume of stock-piles, mucks or pits in quarries, power plants and building material factories never has been so simple, fast and exact. Our stock-pile system flies fully automatic and records the extent of the area from above in millions of image survey points within a few minutes. After a short processing time, the highly accurate 3D model is available and our software VolumeX provides you with the survey report of volume, tonnage and value for your documentation or accounting within a few mouse clicks. Ideal for daily use as a service provider and plant operator!



Your advantages

Efficient and fast measurement of stock-piles
— Equalization of work peaks
— Objective and repeatable inventory of the industrial premises
— Increase safety at work, as safety-critical areas do not have to be entered
— No interruption of normal work in the quarry
— No running costs

Data sheet

Survey of whole quarries

Safe and fast measurement!

The mining solutions of geo-konzept belong to the standard software in this industry. The combination with our UAV quarry survey package provides you with up-to-date and highly accurate data about your premises. These are implemented as digital mine plants in our software QuarryManager and support the daily decisions of operating managers and service providers.

Furthermore the use of UAVs improves operational safety, as the pilot can control the measurement away from vehicles or areas that are subject to a risk of being hit by rock fall. Quarry surveys with UAVs therefore are precise, safe and fast.

Your advantages

Fast and highly accurate measurement of complete quarries
— Facilitate decisions for operating managers and service providers
— Direct connectivity to the other geo-konzept surveying solutions
— Increasing working safety
— No running costs
