The 3D mapping and monitoring specialist GeoSLAM has announced a new innovative product to enable mine operators to quickly and easily build high-density 3D volumetric models within minutes. GeoSLAM Volumes is an end to end way to calculate stockpile mass, instantly turning stockpile point cloud data into actionable 3D information for quick decision making. This is achieved using the company’s handheld Zeb Horizon SLAM (simultaneous localisation and mapping) scanner, which can be utilised on foot or with an UAV.
Using lightweight and easy-to-use scanners, the innovative solution can capture and calculate complex data, such as the weight and bulk of stockpiles, up to ten times faster than traditional tools. GeoSLAM Volumes enables volume calculations to be calculated as frequently as required at all stages of the supply chain without disruption to site activity or compromising employee safety.
