Virtual Surveyor Introduces Enhanced Stockpile Reporting in Drone Surveying Software

Calculating and reporting stockpile inventories are now easier and faster in the latest version of the Virtual Surveyor drone surveying software.

Virtual Surveyor Version 8.2 allows users to accurately calculate stockpile volumes in drone imagery with just a few mouse clicks and then generate a professional PDF report detailing material tonnage and value.

“The stockpile inventory workflow is now complete in Virtual Surveyor – a huge time saver for users,” said Tom Op ‘t Eyndt, Virtual Surveyor CEO. “Before Version 8.2, users could quickly calculate stockpile volumes, but creating a professional looking report from those numbers was time consuming. Now the entire workflow is seamless and fast.”

The enhanced stockpile inventory functionality saves significant time at any site where materials are extracted, stored, or separated – open pit mines, aggregate quarries, lumber mills, recycling centers, and waste disposal operations.

“This new capability lets site operators easily report the tonnage and value of stockpile materials – which is the information organizations really need,” said Op ‘t Eyndt.

Virtual Surveyor is a powerful surveying software that bridges the gap between drone photogrammetric processing applications and engineering design packages, enabling surveyors to derive topographic information from drone data needed by engineers for construction, mining, and excavation projects. The software presents an interactive onscreen environment with drone orthophotos, digital surface models (DSMs), and/or LiDAR point clouds where users generate CAD models, create cut-and-fill maps, and calculate volume reports.
