With Datamine’s partnership with PixPro, you can now utilise intelligent tools to capture and manage your geological images for 3D modelling and analysis.
“We’re excited to be working with PixPro more closely, as it means more benefits for our clients including easier integration, working with one team rather than separate companies, and overall pricing benefits when signing up for the bundled products.” – Ben Vagg, Product Manager, Studio Survey, Datamine.
Edvardas Ramanauskas, CEO, PixPro said, “Working with Datamine brings the PixPro solution to a lot more mine sites around the globe – a prospect we’re very happy about. We’re committed to working with the Datamine team to continuously innovate and deliver a solution that is customer-driven.”
“Partnering with Pixpro means that we’re able to take the data captured from drones and other image capture technology and access even better quality 3D modelling. A prospect we know will be hugely beneficial to our clients and which we are excited to continue developing even further” said Ian Anderson, Senior Mining Geologist.
What is Datamine PixPro?
Datamine PixPro is an advanced Photogrammetry software utilising data capture from drones and a range of other captures. Designed to provide fast data-driven insights, Datamine PixPro provides the most efficient, sustainable and cost-effective solution. Easy integration with Sirovision, Studio Survey and other Datamine products.
Key Features include:
Intuitive Photo Manager
A wide range of photo management options enables the user to process the photos acquired by any photographic source. With Photo Manager you can also easily review, arrange, select or deselected the specific photos for further data processing.
Highly Detailed 3D Terrains
Object visualisation in 3D mode has never been so easy – no matter the size of the object, navigate through different views without sacrificing performance or accuracy. The large data visualisation engine enables you to zoom in, zoom out, drag the zone of interest from one object to another, maintaining visual clarity.
Dense Point Clouds
Dense point clouds are the key elements in creating a 3D mesh from the original 2D footage. Denser 3D point clouds result in higher resolution, more detailed textures and improved precision.
Average processing scenarios:
- 367 photos covering approx. 240,000m²
- Low density dense point cloud of 13.9M points GSD of 0.34m processing time 1hr 21min
- High density dense point cloud of 27.0M points GSD of 0.02m processing time 2hr 39min
Object Comparison Over Time
This feature allows you to monitor how an object changes with time and access valuable information for effective resource and workflow planning. It also enables you to monitor changes in stockpiles, including building and depletion.
Advanced Contour Line Drawing
With a wide range of options for operating with the contour lines, you can select whether to draw:
- A set of contour lines by defining the necessary spacing between the lines;
- Each contour line separately without the need to add spaces between different lines.
Draw a separate contour line to showcase the needed level. This feature provides visibility at the specific element level. You’ll be able to easily drag it up and down, till you find the suitable height, add new contour lines one by one, highlight only those that you need, and measure the distance between the selected contour-lines.
2D and 3D Measurements
Calculate the precise measurements and analyse the object by using:
- Line (distance),
- Profile (distance, altitude, angle),
- Polygon (slope, volume, perimeter),
- Surfaces – the 2D & 3D perimeter and 2D & 3D area,
- 3D volume, height and base area.
Get the precise measurements of the stockpile crest by using a draped line option.
