Drones For Stockpile Measurements

10 Aug 2022

Stockpile management is a crucial operation on any jobsite, and drones have become a key tool for stockpile measurements and volumetric analysis.

Drones automate this process, making it safer, easier and quicker to obtain highly-accurate data. The data from these aerial surveys is processed to build visual 2D maps and 3D models for insights, analysis and calculations.

As Craig Matthews, of Balfour Beatty says: "It would take a surveyor, using traditional handheld equipment, about a day to measure the stockpiles and process the data. But using the drone, we can fly over the compound in 15 minutes and process the model in about two hours."
