Stockpiling inside a hole can be tricky business because of the limited information available concerning the floor beneath the material to be measured. Pre-Scanning the hole/pit before storage allows precise volume measurements. Here are some images taken by one of our field specialists, Brett Murphy. With Mobile LiDAR technology and skilled technicians, every measurement in this challenging scenario is now an apples to apples comparison with the past. It offers superior accuracy and credibility.
This is a closed pit that has been designated now as the new location for inventory storage. By scanning this pit before adding any inventory, we will be able to get great measurement from here forward without having to guess the dimensions or depth of the hole.
Now that the hole has inventory in it we are able to compare the volume difference between when it is full and empty. No guesswork required.
