Volume Measurement

Can-Explore can accurately evaluate the volume of piles of materials such as sand, crushed rock, backfill material, etc. by flying over the area with a drone. The information collected can be used among other things to better plan a construction project, manage quarry inventories, etc. 
Thanks to specialized software and drones operated by certified pilots, we are able to deliver volumetric surveys, 3D models and high-resolution orthophotos.

Volume Measurement with a Drone

Aerial survey data collected by Can-Explore make it possible to accurately evaluate the volume of materials entering or leaving the site, therefore ensuring that production work is rigorously monitored.

With Can-Explore’s web application, quarry managers can track changes in material volumes using the different photogrammetry surveys done by a drone. It is also possible for managers to add their own swelling coefficients to visualize a pile's corrected volume.

The volumetric survey section in the application also allows users to interactively view quarries and worksites in order to download various relevant reports and charts.

Traditional Volume Measurement

When using a drone is not the best option, Can-Explore is able to take measurements with the GPS station and total station.

Survey results are also available on Can-Explore’s web application. The results from the two methods can be integrated into the web application for a same quarry and all functionalities are usable.
