Drone Mapping in Mining

Powerful aerial data for your mine

Drones and the powerful aerial data they provide are bringing cost and time-saving innovations to a variety of mining processes. Professional-quality maps and 3D models empower you to instantly calculate aggregate volumes, keep track of equipment locations and monitor safety environmental compliance.

Web-based, button-click map sharing means you can collaborate with team mates both onsite and back at the office, making sure that everyone has access to the data they need.

My favorite thing about DroneDeploy is the service. The customer service is amazing. Any time I've had any issues, they've always been crazy responsive.
