Laser Scanners

All Case Studies

Managing safety in limestone caves

Laser scanner and UAV geotechnical data is instrumental in identifying potential risk and managing visitor safety in limestone cave formations in Victoria, eastern Australia.

Highwall mapping for mine geology applications

User friendly systems and workflow allow surveyors to scan highwalls quickly and easily, capturing data at the same time as daily or end of month surveys.

Scanning the Pilbara

Atlas Iron has realised the benefits of using the Maptek I-Site 8800 laser scanner to acquire detailed topographic data for new mining projects in Western Australia.

Historic railway gets back on track

Modern survey technology has been applied to assess the safety of derelict railway tunnels and collect data for rehabilitation planning.

Scanning the Sydney Opera House

Maptek I-Site high performance laser survey technology proved its value during the recent Scottish Ten project to record the Sydney Opera House and its surrounds in 3D.

Accurate stockpile inventory

Laser scanning technology gives a global chemicals and logistics solutions provider auditing and inventory confidence, while reducing wastage and saving time.

Topographic stockpile survey solution

Maptek laser scanning technology is being used for calculating stockpile volumes at a gold mine in Mexico.

Safety and agility for mine development

Maptek laser scanning is promoting agility and adherence to mine planning at Mineração Caraíba SA.

Measurement experience in the desert

Maptek solutions are embedded at Oyu Tolgoi in Mongolia, supporting daily, monthly and annual survey data for a wide range of mining applications.

Laser scanning in extreme conditions

When Diavik Diamond mine needed a laser scanner to work in -50°C conditions Maptek I-Site technology provided the answer. The new system reduced the pit survey time to several hours.

Survey keeps airport project on track

Maptek mine measurement technology helps ensure bulk earthworks meet design for the Western Sydney International Airport.

Precision data redefines inventory control

The need for tighter inventory control in challenging market conditions drives greater emphasis on the frequency, accuracy and visibility of reporting practices.

Monitoring quarry highwall safety

Comparing surfaces surveyed at quarterly intervals allows quarry management to identify and mitigate safety issues arising from rock falls.

Laser scanning for stockpiles

The Maptek laser scanner is quick and easy to operate. The level of data detail leads to improved volume accuracy and the data capture has distinct safety benefits for stockpile surveys.

Interior stockpile management

Adelaide Brighton Cement calls on Maptek to accurately record exterior and interior stockpile volumes. I-Site technology overcomes the challenge of scanning in the dusty environment.

Considering mining impacts

Environmental, social and governance considerations drive mine planning for a small scale miner in the historical goldfields of eastern Australia.

Scanning Glenwood Canyon

The Maptek I-Site 8800 laser scanner was used to scan and develop a 3D digital terrain model for monitoring canyon walls surrounding Colorado’s busy Interstate I-70 Highway.

Understanding shear zones

I-Site laser scanning helped AECOM to extract geotechnical information on shear zones in this quarry in southeastern Australia.

Modelling cement silo profiles

Maptek I-Site laser scanning technology was used to profile material inside the silo at Melbourne Cement to help improve the emptying process.

Modelling phosphate deposits

Maptek software and hardware solutions are helping the Republic of Nauru Phosphate Corporation to measure and model phosphate deposits on the Pacific Island.
