Mapping and measurement technologies for mining applications
As a long-established pioneer in mapping and measurement technology, serving the mining and aggregates, solid waste, and construction industries, Firmatek provides a number of services to our clients.
We have been supplying inventory measurement and management services to the mining industry since 1988. Our experienced team is here to help you solve complex inventory problems.
Firmatek strives to remain at the forefront of innovation and technology to provide accurate and efficient data collection and processing to clients.
We will help you determine whether our mobile or stationary LiDAR, one of the many types of drones we use, or a combination of the tools is suitable for your job. We will also work with you to determine the service model that will work best for your operational needs.
Drone service for map data collection
Firmatek offers two service models: field services and drone solutions.
With our field services, one of our technicians will come out to your site and collect the data at a scheduled time. If you choose our drone solutions, we will equip you with the necessary equipment and training. You will then be free to fly the drone at your convenience. After you have flown over the area that needs to be mapped and measured, you can upload the images to Firmatek’s client portal.
After the data is collected, our team processes it to provide inventory results. You can login to the client portal and view your results, as well as download them as needed.
All deliverables and historical reports from Firmatek can be found and accessed on the client portal.

Quarry mapping and engineering services
Firmatek provides a variety of mapping products to the mining industry.

Mine data processing services
Firmatek can help with data processing if you have your own drone or scanner.
You can use your own equipment and upload the data to us for processing. You don’t have to deal with time-consuming and complex software. Just tell us what insights you are looking for, and we will get the information you need.
Whether it’s a stockpile or inventory measurement, a point cloud or aerial image, or a complex engineering project, we will use the data collected by your equipment to create a deliverable that provides the insights you need to run your business.
In this guide, we will discuss some of the keys to successfully building and implementing your enterprise drone program.
