Stockpile Volumes Analysis

Regular, fast data collection with SLAM for volume calculation

With GeoSLAM Volumes, mine operators can easily calculate stockpile tonnages within a few minutes, and see change over time.

GeoSLAM’s powerful mobile mapping technology enables you to build high-density 3D volumetric models within minutes. Our market-leading, handheld laser scanners can determine accurate stockpile volumes, silo reserves or mining tempos, without the need for GPS. Walk and scan, or attach the scanner to a trolley, drone, pole, UAV or vehicle for remote monitoring of hazardous environments. Our volumes software instantly turns data into actionable 3D information for rapid real-time decision making. So now you can confidently verify volumes at all stages of the supply chain as frequently as necessary. Train your staff in minutes, slash survey times and drive down costs.

Why use GeoSLAM Volumes?

  • Accurate analysis of material on site, affecting your companies value
  • Ensure accurate reporting of mined materials for better understanding and planning
  • Stock takes and auditing become easier
  • Improve your supply chain and planning for optimum ‘just in time’ resource planning
  • Huge advantages of using GeoSLAM compared to topographic, photogrammetry or terrestrial LiDAR scanning

Easy, safe and quick volume and tonnage calculation using SLAM technology.

Use your ZEB handheld or mounted to a UAV to capture data as frequently as you need to get accurate volumetric insight.

Track volume change over time, and set alarms when your stockpile reaches min/max tonnage, volume or height.

The entire workflow is fast, easy and gives you essential information for managing your mine operations and supply chain.

Our lightweight, mobile scanners are user-friendly to the extent that they can be used without comprehensive training by anyone in building an accurate 3D model in the quickest time possible. Within minutes anyone can be operating the technology, saving additional preparation time for any members of staff previously unfamiliar with the technology.

How it works

GeoSLAM Stockpile volumes combines hardware and advanced SLAM to deliver important information, rapidly.

It starts with SLAM

Easily walk around the perimeter or fly a UAV over a stockpile.

2. Process

Transfer the data to a computer and upload to GeoSLAM Connect, then load the processed data to the Volumes software.


Define the boundaries and the floor, enter the bulk factor and specific gravity to view volume and material tonnage calculations in seconds.

4. Manage

Generate volumes reports as and when you need them.

Learn more about our ZEB scanners

Choose one of the following scanners to pair with our Volumes software.

ZEB Horizon


 Used mostly for scanning indoors or in underground mines and caves with an IP64 rating. Can be used for applications such as construction/BIM or creating floorplans. Can be used outdoors and has a range of 30m.



Real-time processing which means you can visualise the scan as you move. Has a range of 30m and IP51 rating. Used mostly for scanning indoors and utilised for applications such as construction/BIM or creating floorplans.


ZEB Horizon

 The most flexible of the ZEB family with a range of accessories which makes it suitable for lots of different applications. Can be used to scan indoors and outdoors with a longer range of 100m. Collect data using a UAV or vehicle, or pair with a backpack and GPS antenna for precise location positioning.
