Bennett Land Surveying Ltd has extensive experience calculating the volumes of coal piles and gravel quarries in West Vancouver and other locations. We create surfaces using digital terrain models and topographic surveys, and we calculate volumes from two different surfaces.
Point of Beginning Magazine had the following to say about Scanning to calculate volumes:
While traditional scanning methods have played an important role in geospatial for many years, 3D laser scanning has been gaining attention based on the volume of precise data it can capture, making its speed and efficiency unmatched by other methods.
Today’s 3D laser scanners are based on light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technologies that measure and record precise distances and locations to produce a point cloud file. The technology allows users to develop highly accurate digital measurements and images easily and quickly for use throughout a project’s lifecycle.
