"Minewise Technology Ltd. has developed a progressive scanning technique that allows for detailed surveys of vertical raises or shafts up to 1,250 m. The device captures 360 degree radial scans every 8 cm and utilizes an integrated fiber optic gyro to preserve the azimuth of the scanner at all times. The data can be directly imported into the mine’s 3D coordinates. “This ‘scanning during decent’ approach eliminates the shadowing of data typical of stationary scanning technologies,” said Everett Henderson, Minewise Technology’s technical manager. Using a pan-tiltzoom high-resolution color camera, companies can inspect inaccessible bore holes, raises, ore passes or cage compartments."
