To help provide basic data to achieve 3D digitalization of a mine, Meshdynamics was hired to implement oblique aerial photography and generate a 3D reality model. Previously, the mine owner used a 2D plan and traditional methods to manage the mining fields. The project team faced data acquisition challenges given weather and environmental conditions, compounded by data integration issues to realize full mine digitalization. They needed integrated technology applications and an open platform to meet the owner’s digital requirements.
They selected ContextCapture to generate a 3D reality model in an open platform, streamlining workflows and facilitating interoperability and collaboration. Bentley’s flexible and interoperable modeling and visualization technology allowed for accurate and timely data collection, network transmission, standard integration, and automated operations for intelligent information application related to the mining business. The solution provides the basis to integrate operational, production, and safety data to achieve smart, digital mine management.
