Quarries

3D laser scanning is very important in quarry exploitation.

Based on spatial scan data the following can be done:

  • Excavation cubage calculation
  • Excavation planning
  • Monitoring excavation volume
  • Quarry management and further exploitation planning are made significantly easier by these possibilities.
  • For example, it is easy to calculate how deep to dig in order to get the desired cubage, which further enables the choice of the best place for a dig, etc.
  • Repeated scanning within certain time intervals enables the calculation of the exact excavation volume based on the comparison of the two models.
