Calculate and measure stockpile tonnages within a few minutes, and see change over time.

Determine accurate stockpile volume measurements, 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. GeoSLAM Volumes software then instantly turns data into actionable 3D information for rapid real-time decision making.

Why use GeoSLAM Volumes for Stockpile Surveys?

  • Accurate analysis of material on sites, 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. Be more efficient

Easy, safe and quick stockpile 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 stockpile inventory, 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, projects and supply chain.

You can capture and calculate complex data up to 10 times faster than traditional tools, with little or no disruption at the site. Slash survey times, increase measuring frequency and drive down costs. With GeoSLAM Volumes you can verify stockpile volume calculation
at all stages of the supply chain as frequently as necessary.

Trained in minutes, scanning in minutes - Democratising laser scanning for all professionals.
Trained in minutes, scanning in minutes

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 do you calculate stockpile volume?

To calculate stockpile volume measurements use GeoSLAM stockpile volume measurement equipment combined with our Volumes software to deliver important information, rapidly. We’ve broken it down into 4 easy steps – Capture, Processing, View and Manage. Capture your point cloud data using our hardware, Process it using GeoSLAM Connect and Volumes calculation software. View the data and Manage it with regular stockpile volume measurement reports.

It starts with SLAM

Easily walk around the perimeter with your ZEB scanner or attach it to UAV to fly over a stockpile.

2. Processing

Transfer the point cloud data to a computer and upload to our GeoSLAM Connect software to be automatically processed then load the 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 stockpile volume measurement reports as and when you need them.

Mapping the Underground World: Critical Technology for Intelligent Mines

The last decade has seen the rollercoaster of highs and lows in the mining sector; and the volatility is likely to continue. While digital tools are readily available that help mining decision-makers do the job better, faster, safer and more cost effectively, there are still many businesses slow to embrace transformative practices. With change being a constant, forward- thinking mining operators need to embrace digital technology and drive innovation, or risk being left behind.
