Quickly and accurately scan and digitise the inside of your Australian underground mine with a portable 3D laser scanner.
As underground mines in Australia grow in size, extend their depth, and increase their yield into the future, being able to visualise and understand what is happening in each part of the mine will become increasingly important for mine engineers. Gone are the days when most knowledge of the layout and status of the mine were obtained first-hand by moving around and inspecting the mine. These days, this practice is slow, inefficient, dangerous, and almost entirely unnecessary.
Advances in the field of 3D mine scanning, particularly the development of mobile scanning solutions have made the lives of mine engineers more convenient. The uGPS Rapid Mapper™ mobile underground 3D scanner generates accurate point cloud data while on the move, and the information acquired is then used to generate three-dimensional visualisations of areas within the mine, complete with accurate measurements. This scanner uses laser beams to “sweep” the area being scanned and records millions of data points that are then converted to 3D mine scanning information that can be used by engineers (on-site or remotely).
The information, measurements, and visualisations generated from scan data obtained by the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ can then be used for better management of the mine, planning, confirming production quantities, monitoring of machinery and vehicles within the mine, and safety tasks (e.g. mobile convergence monitoring).
Due to its robust, low-maintenance construction and design, ease of use, and ability to generate accurate 3D point cloud data while on the move, the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ is ideally suited for the task of 3D mine scanning.
