Planning Closure
Exploration and Operation and
Development Reclamation

• The I-Site 8810 instrument combines advanced multi-sensor survey

technology with an easy to use field-ready instrument. Provides laser
scanning and digital photogrammetry in one integrated instrument.

• Designed and manufactured to stringent standards, developed with the

mining industry in mind.

• First laser scanner to incorporate panoramic digital colour imaging at a

super high resolution of 70 mega pixels.

Introducing the I-Site 8810

• Range: 2.5m-2000m
• Range accuracy: 8mm
• 360oH x 80oV
• Acquisition Rate: 8,800pps
• Built-in GPS
• Pre-Defined scanning resolution.
• 70 megapixel panoramic camera lens.
• Auto-levelling compensator
• Survey setup & backsight controls

Hand Held Controller (HHC) Laser Scanner

•Stylus, touch screen, LCD •Built-in battery
•Dual batteries •Motorised survey sighting scope
•shock mounted HDD •Levelling compensator
Survey Telescope

• Survey Quality Features:

– Motorised optical telescope

– Digital level compensator

– Tribrach adaptor built into the

instrument for accurate alignment
within survey control

– Temperature correction

• Ideal for mining and topography survey

Mining Applications

• Suited to a wide range of mining applications including:

– Volumetric measurements

– Pit surveys (end of month surveys)

– Stockpile surveys

– Haul road analysis

– Underground development and void survey

– Geological mapping

– Contract volume measurement

– Truck/shovel load measurement and analysis

I-Site Studio™

• Designed to process large data sets downloaded from laser scanning machines. I-
Site Studio™ is compatible with all laser scan data formats.

• Resultant models can be exported as DXF or as “ireg” file directly into Vulcan,
creating seamless integration between Maptek products.

• Accurate asset management
• Pre/Post blast analysis
• Geological and geotechnical analysis
• Month-end surveying
• Open pit tools
• Automatic photo registration
– no reflectors needed.
End of Month Pit Surveys

• 1km x 900m open pit

scanned in 3 hours.

• Registered, filtered &

modelled for volumes in 20

Selective open pit scanning


Scan data

Model for volume


• Quickly and easily

generate contours

• Quickly and easily

generate sections.
Toes & Crests

• Automatically create
toes & crest strings on
open pit models.
Digital Panoramic Camera

• Taken at the same time as

scanning. Internal camera
that acquires up to 70 mega
pixels of panoramic imaging.

• Instant 3D geological

• Accurate structural &

lithological feature extraction

• Digitize geological features

and export as cad files into
Vulcan for further modelling.
Geotechnical Tools

• Able to gain Dip + Strike information directly from scans and

Geotechnical Tools

• Quickly generate Stereonets and Rose Diagrams from scans and

Geotechnical Tools

• Analyse areas of instability in rock walls by comparing

surfaces over time.
Geotechnical Tools

• Identify unstable areas and fractures where slope failure

is occurring.
Geotechnical Tools

• Compare surfaces before and after failure to show where

volumes have changed and by how much:
Geotechnical Tools

• Scan rock failures to pull off information and measurements from

hazardous areas that you are unable to reach manually.
Underground Surveying

Easily calculate grades of drives

& create models for volumes or
stope differential volume
Comparing Plan and As-Built

• Comparing the Plan (blue) and As-Built

(yellow) models.
• The difference highlights a possible
narrowing at one end of the asbuilt

• Before moving any equipment down, this

study will allow us to:

1. Measure the width of the asbuilt

2. Create an intersection line between plan and
asbuilt where the narrowing occurs
3. Export this line as X,Y,Z points to upload to a totalstation.
4. Calculate the volume to remove to widen the asbuilt to the plan.
Isolate Potential Areas of Concern

• ‘Fragmenting’ the two solids, highlights where the two overlap.

• The area in purple (right hand picture) is the potential narrow point.
Take Measurements

• Easily take and compare accurate measurements.

• First pass check on narrow points
• If it is narrow, Studio can be used to rectify situation by:

1. Identify location of intersection

between asbuilt and plan

2. Calculate volume to extract

Identify Intersections

• A line between these ‘fragments’ can be created

• This line is a standard CAD line.
• Can be exported as DXF or as an ASCII file of points
• These points could be loaded into a total-station which is then
taken underground to identify this area accurately.
Volume Calculations

• If the asbuilt has to be widened then

Studio can determine the volume of
the area to widen
– The difference between the asbuilt and the
• A solid is created and a volume can be
• This can be used to determine a blast
pattern or other method to widen the

14.3 m3

• I-Site Laser Scanners and I-Site Studio are quick and

easy to use.
• Excellent surveying tool with a wide range of mining
applications, e.g.
– End of month surveying and volume calculations.
– Geotechnical analysis.
– Automatic creation of contours, toes & crests.
– Pit Modelling
– Geological Mapping
– Underground Modelling and Volumes.
