Our service makes the management of extraction activities and environmental protection issues easy-to-handle, available on demand, and cost-effective, without exposing workers to dangerous conditions. Traditional surveying technology is labor, skill and cost-intensive, while UAV/airborne imagery increases safety, efficiency and accuracy while keeping cost and labor to a minimum. Our technology will enable you to produce orthomosaics, DSMs, DTMs and point clouds of pits and quarries to calculate volumes of extracted materials, volumes of stockpiles and monitor hot-spots or interesting site areas, etc.

This new and effective process of generating up-to-date information allows for continuous monitoring and well-structured decision making for any area of a mining site. Results obtained are traceable over time in order to comply with environmental standards.
