Aerial Survey Equipment and Modeling Technology for Mining Sites

An iron ore mining site in Kiruna, Northern Sweden, was repeatedly surveyed with a small unmanned aircraft system (UAS) on two dates. The project was performed with a SmartPlanes SmartOne-C aircraft, and a rugged tablet computer was used as ground control station running the SmartPlanes GCS ground control station and Aerial Mapper quick-look mosaicking software.

The UAS-survey demonstration was part of the conference programme of the Nordic Mining Surveyor's meeting to show the complete workflow from initial flight planning and flight operations to data processing and accuracy assessment.
