Long Distance Horizontal Underground Mobile Scanning with the uGPS Rapid Mapper™: In recent years, LiDAR scanners have started to become a relatively common sight inside underground mines. The development of this scanning technology has made it easier for surveyors and engineers to collect data about the inside of a mine for planning, production or safety purposes.
uGPS Rapid Mapper™ Underground Scanner – Background - In order for mines to be operated in a safe and efficient manner, it is essential that accurate surveying data is available. For some time now, satellite-based GPS systems have been used in the mapping of surface mines.
The uGPS Rapid Mapper™ 3D Mine Scanning unit is so easy to use that it can be operated by an existing staff member with minimal explanation and training. This makes it the ideal choice for underground mines of all shapes and sizes.
