survey area are Co-ordinates well as 3D formats
Processed Data : High Resolution Orthophoto
High resolution images acquired through UAV flights are seamlessly stitched and
orthorectified to produce highly detailed ortho-imagery. The data is accurately
georeferenced and can be in GIS compatible formats for the purposes of detailed base
mapping, image classification, planimetric measurements, compliance checks,
tree count etc. The enhanced resolution of our data allows for better object recognition
and feature extraction in addition to accurate measurements.

Orthophoto of the entire Mine

Processed Data : High Resolution 3D DSM/DEM
The images are then used to generate high density 3D point clouds and detailed digital
elevation models (DEM) for extracting accurate topographic information. The high level of
3D detail and clearer object definition facilitates improved assessment of relief, slopes
and obstructions and ensures highly accurate volumetric calculations. Our survey
grade topographic data can be further coupled with incredibly detailed visualizations in GIS
or CAD compatible formats.

Break lines of the entire Mine

Processed Data : 3D Visualization (Virtual Survey)
Highly detailed 3D reconstructed models of open cast mines
can be visualized using our bespoke software. The 3D models
are fully geo-referenced and orthorectified which means that
measurements and calculations can be taken directly from
them. This can be anything from basic distance, area and
height measurements right up to stockpile analysis, line of
sight, shading analysis and more.

Processed Data : Overlay of project .dwg on our data

The mine’s initial CAD drawing can be overlaid on the processed data provided by AIRPIX:
• for initial mining planning & designing of a newly leased mine
• to check for conformity to lease & environmental compliance
• to make changes in the execution plan if necessary with respect to actual progress on site
