Volumetric Calculations from Remote Sensing


Gaia Resources worked with St Barbara Limited to undertake disturbance and rehabilitation summaries, and extended this to look at the calculation of the volumes of waste dumps.  With all of these components, remotely sensed data was used in the form of both imagery and Digital Elevation Models.

For the waste dump calculations, the Digital Elevation Model was used to calculate the volumes of the waste dumps through a process to pull out the base level of the surrounding topography, and then to calculate the volume of the dumps based on their shape and height.

This resulted in the creation of a range of products including map books, imagery, datasets and statistical spreadsheets.
