South Africa is one of the world's most important mining countries in terms of the variety and quantity of minerals produced. Accurate and up to date geospatial and remote sensing data is seen as a critical asset for exploration, development, monitoring and management across the mining industry. Geosense provide access to the best photography and LiDAR technology available, delivering the highest levels of detail and accuracy available in the mining market today.
Geosense leads in the provision of survey services and geospatial datasets for the mining sector. The development of geospatial data benefits every major component of the mining industry, including exploration, mineral processing, health and safety processes and environmental strategies.
We provide a range of innovative Aerial Photography and LiDAR survey services to support a wide range of business essential mining applications. The data derived from aerial imagery and LiDAR surveys are helping to increase efficiency, improve safety and maximise profitability in the African mining sector:
- Our surveys help those in the mining sector undertake their essential business operations. Geosense excel in the rapid provision of highly precise and accurate Digital Terrain Models (DTM’s) combined with very high resolution imagery acquired from airborne LiDAR. For example, a primary deliverable for coal mines is the monthly stock pile volume calculations. We can deploy aircraft fitted with the LiDAR and imaging system, capture the data and then supply the completed calculations the very next day. It is a very cost efficient, safe and highly accurate service that assists those in the mining sector with their asset and management reporting and volume requirements.
- Geosense also provide coverage of the full concession mining area captured from our large format digital cameras. Products include high resolution image mosaics at 5cm GSD, Digital Surface Models (DSM’s), Digital Terrain Models (DTM’s) and the provision of 2D and 3D vector line maps of the concessions.
- As leaders in the field in aerial survey technology we utilise thermal imaging sensors to assist mines in the identification and monitoring of subsidence and of sub surface burning of coal stockpiles.
We provide access to the best photography and LiDAR technology available, delivering the highest levels of detail and accuracy available in the mining market today. In addition our data hosting, streaming and analysis services are also available to help you make the most of your geospatial data.
