Perform accurate underground tunnel mapping with the uGPS Rapid Mapper™.

Tunnels are an indispensable part of every underground mine, as they facilitate the movement of men and machines into and around the mine and allow mined material to be moved from working faces to a shaft for removal to the surface.
Underground Tunnel Mapping
As tunnels are created throughout an area the stresses of the surrounding rock body will change. It is important for mining engineers to determine the changes of these stress levels and how they are interacting with the underground tunnels. By conducting underground tunnel mapping, the interactions between the tunnels and the surrounding rock can be analyzed by mining engineers.

The uGPS Rapid Mapper™ mobile 3D underground laser scanner is purpose-built for use in underground mines. Despite its simplicity of use and ruggedness, the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ is also packed full of high-technology features that make it extremely useful, versatile, and a must for every underground mine.

Features include:

  • 2 LiDAR laser scanners
  • Inertial sensor
  • On-board computer
  • Wi-Fi connectivity (optional)
  • RFID tag reader

All this technology gives the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ the ability to accurately perform both open and closed loop scanning as part of underground tunnel mapping operations.

To further enhance its ease of use and versatility, this scanner can be attached to a mine vehicle and used while traveling through the mine, assembling accurate 3D point cloud data as it goes.

The uGPS Rapid Mapper™ is the ideal choice for underground tunnel mapping operations for all underground mines, irrespective of their size or what it is they mine. Contact us now to find out more about the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ mobile 3D scanner.
