Next-Generation Geospatial Solutions Enhance Volumetric Measuring Capabilities
April 22nd, 2013 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
During major mining efforts, knowing how much earth has been removed from a quarry or mine can significantly enhance overall project management. Organizations need to be able to provide accurate measurements and reporting to ensure that the project is aligning with overall goals, as well as complies with current mining regulations.
In addition, organizations that store landscape or construction materials, such as gravel, sand or dirt, need to measure and analyze how much their surplus is being used at all times.
On April 30th, Intergraph is hosting a webinar called “Easy Volumetric Measurements Using Geospatial Technology,” which will guide users through a workflow for determining overall earth removal.
During this webinar, we will guide you through a workflow that enables you to determine how much earth has been removed from a quarry or mine. Likewise, this workflow could also be used by anyone who stores landscaping or constructions materials (such as gravel, sand, or dirt).
The webinar will showcase generating a high-density digital surface model (DSM) using advanced pixel correlation methods (including semi-global matching) on stereo imagery pairs. Using the DSMs, we will then demonstrate how to create a set of bare-earth, digital elevation models (DEMs) that represent the ground surface both with and without the piles.
We will round out the webinar by employing a newly released spatial modeling technology to prepare the DSMs for the final steps of the calculations that provide a volumetric measurement of the pile.
The webinar illustrates how the right geospatial solutions can be used for any type of application – from measuring gravel supplies to precisely how earth has been removed from a mine. We encourage everyone to check out this webinar and register now.
