Volumetric calculations of pit and stockpile volumes are required for audit purposes and for contractor payment reconciliations.


Topographical Mapping

Topographical maps, detail maps or vector line drawings are derived from aerial photography for the compilation of elevation data.


Photogrammetry / 3D Mapping

Photogrammetry is the practice of determining the geometric properties of objects from photographic images.


Digital Terrain Model (DTM)

Digital Terrain Models are captured from aerial imagery by experienced Photogrammetists to accurately reflect the elevation of the mapped area.



Contours indicate the elevation of an area on a map to determine the general terrain.

Legal Appointments

We are appointed to a number of mines as the competent person in charge of surveying, mapping and mine plans in terms of the Mine Health and Safety Act.


Survey Project Management

Project management for any engineering- or mine survey project.


Data Management

We assist our clients to optimize existing data, identify the need for additional data and plan the survey  project to satisfy the identified survey needs.
