Rugged, reliable hardware for mining and civil survey projects

Versatile systems > Reliable operation > Accurate deliverables

Maptek R3 laser scanners combine fast accurate sensing, high resolution digital imagery and powerful modelling software for safe, efficient site survey.

The R3 mkII series laser scanners capture data at twice the speed of earlier R3 systems. Improved quality of data at range, along with higher image acquisition quality allows survey teams to be confident that accurate, current topographic and volumetric data is guiding mine planning and geotechnical applications.

An internal high dynamic range digital camera produces high resolution images for geotechnical analysis and high impact visualisation, allowing imagery and lidar scan points to be acquired simultaneously.

Maptek FieldHHC combines a powerful, simple GUI with intuitive features for controlling survey workflow in the field. It follows standard survey setup and scan georeferencing, enabling users to enjoy the most efficient survey experience.

Maptek laser scanning solutions are founded on our 40 years of experience in mining technology, and are supported and serviced by our team of survey and mining specialists.

Case Studies


Dual window option New

The new XR3-D dual window system captures data from both sides simultaneously, halving the data acquisition time when scanning from the safety of a moving vehicle.

Survey crews can scan surrounding terrain in both directions while travelling to capture specific mine measurement data for seamlessly acquiring haul roads, gradients and infrastructure.

Cold climate option

The XR3 mkII cold climate laser scanner allows operations to conduct survey and monitoring tasks for hours in extremely low temperature conditions.

It has been designed to operate at temperatures down to -20°C, with a limited operating time below that. A removable neoprene jacket protects the laser scanner against wind chill.
