Survey and stockpile measurement
Scope of services
In the area of open cast mining survey techniques are frequently used in order to determine the geodectic measurement of the terrain. In the process, the main objectives are quantity estimations such as the determination of volumes and masses of product stockpiles as well as the estimation of reserve soil deposits. For surveying modern satellite bases navigation systems such as real time kinematic systems (RTK) are used, that provide position accuracy in the centimeter range. For this purpose laser-supported total stations, such as tachymeters can be used as well. On basis of the survey data and the requirements of the client a digital terrain model can be displayed with 2D or 3D maps and also volumes can be illustrated. In case of repeated terrain measurements, the calculation of differential volumes is possible.
