Vertical Infrastructure

Mapping Vertical Infrastructure – Hovermap in Underground Mines

Vertical infrastructure, orepasses, shafts, and raises, can be difficult, dangerous, and costly to scan. With Hovermap, it’s now possible to capture data of vertical excavations and produce point clouds of unprecedented accuracy and detail. This allows mining teams to make more informed condition monitoring and remediation decisions, potentially saving their operation millions of dollars.
