GCI has successfully completed it’s First UAV Mapping project at a mine site in Quang Ninh Province, northern Vietnam.
A Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or drone was successfully utilised to carry out a survey of 6.6km² (6,600 Ha) of an operational mine and surrounding areas. Ground control points and flying of the high resolution (30mm per pixel) aerial photography was carried out within one week and the Digital Surface Model (DSM) processed within one week of flying. Deliverables from the UAV mapping included high resolution mosaiced imagery, point cloud data, DSM, digital terrain models (DTMs), contour maps, stockpile maps and a stockpile volume quantity report.
