Elevate Your Inventory Management with Drone Surveys

What Is A Drone Stockpile Survey?

A drone stockpile survey refers to the use of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to capture aerial data for measuring and monitoring stockpiles in industries such as mining, construction, and aggregates. This method is faster, more accurate, and safer than traditional ground-based surveying techniques.

Drones equipped with cameras or other sensors, such as LiDAR or photogrammetry, can capture high-resolution images and data points of stockpiles from various angles. The data collected by drones is then processed using specialised software to generate 3D maps and models, which can be used to calculate stockpile volumes with high accuracy.

This information is crucial for inventory management, financial forecasting, supply chain management, and accurate reconciliation.

Utilising Ground Control Points and For Enhanced Precision

GCPs are physical, large markers set out on the survey area whose coordinates are precisely known. These strategically placed markers serve as reference points that help geo-locate the aerial data captured by the drone.

When the drone captures images of the stockpile, it also includes images of these GCPs. Subsequently, in the data processing stage, the known coordinates of the GCPs are utilised to align and correct the captured data. This process ensures an accurate spatial representation of the stockpile, thereby significantly improving the precision of volume calculations.

This step is pivotal in reducing potential errors, guaranteeing the delivery of more accurate and reliable stockpile measurements.

RTK Accurate Drone Stockpile Volume Measurements

Moreover, we employ Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) technology to further enhance the precision of our drone surveys.

RTK is a GPS correction technology that reduces the errors caused by atmospheric delay and provides real-time corrections to the drone’s positional data.

Combined with GCPs, RTK technology enables us to provide highly precise stockpile data, critical for industries like mining, construction, and aggregates, where accurate stockpile measurements are essential for effective inventory management and accurate financial forecasting.

Making Stockpile Management Easier, Faster, and Safer

Drones For Stockpile Inventory Management

For the aggregates industry, drone surveys are indispensable in measuring stockpiles of materials like crushed stone, sand, and gravel. Our drone surveys provide highly accurate data, thus allowing for reliable stockpile volume calculations.

The ease of regular stockpile volume measurements ensures continuous inventory updates, leading to more precise supply chain management. With our drone technology, aggregate producers can effectively monitor stock levels, manage supply chains, and make informed business decisions.
