Surface/Quarry Work

Wingfield Scale & Measure specializes in stockpiles and bulk material inventory through the latest technology available. Emphasizing our clients needs of high accuracy data with fast turnaround is a core principle of our department. Additional services have also been developed to include other mining related services focused on mapping and measuring.

Wingfield uses LiDAR point cloud instruments to gather and process data for measuring and mapping services. Depending on the situation, we use vehicle-mounted LiDAR Scanning, Drone / UAV equipment, and stationary LiDAR equipment to gather data and Maptek Software, Emesent, FARO Scene, and/or Pix4D to process it. All Measure Department personnel are 30 CFR PART 46 / 48 MSHA Certified.

Our Surface / Quarry Services Include:

Professional LiDAR Scanning

The ability to use various LiDAR and UAV technologies in the field allows us to rapidly capture data in adverse conditions while maintaining timelines for quarry updates or stockpile inventories.



UAV / Drone Platforms

Various types of UAV / Drone systems that can be equipped with photogrammetry or LiDAR are available for a variety of projects.  We understand the strengths and weaknesses of each platform and technology, so we can use the right tool for each job we do.


Shed & Barn Stockpile Inventories

Repeatable and high accuracy data is required for scanning inside sheds and stockpiles.  With normally less than ideal environments, we are experienced with capturing and rendering consistent results safely.


Stockpile Inventories

Our initial service the Measure Department provided was stockpile inventories for our scale clients.  This service has now transformed into the core of our department and continues to be updated and refined as technology advances. We complete stockpile inventories across the United States for various clients with different needs from UAV only, none flight zones, sheds, and underground stockpiles.

Geotechnical Data Capture

High resolution georeferenced data can be captured and processed ready to import into various geotechnical software packages.

Quarry & Open Pit Mapping

LiDAR and/or photogrammetry point clouds of open pit mines is used to generate a surface, contours, quarry updates, and as built vs. design comparisons.


Overburden & Stripping Surveys

Visually and quantitively verify contractors reports for overburden removal. Once approved the overall quarry surface can be updated reflecting the new changes.

Change Detection Scanning

Create customized data ranges to determine the distance of change and visualize the variance. This can be useful for overburden, reclamation, shotcrete depths, or tracking movement of material.

Shed / Barn Stockpile Example

Material storage enclosure scanned and processed, every material shed or barn presents a unique survey challenge.  Custom structural surfaces can be modeled in these areas allowing consistent, repeatable measurements with each measurement.

Stockpile Yard Example

Point clouds from LiDAR and rendered surfaces used for volume calculation. If the site has tunnels and feeders these can be modeled to provide more exact volume measurements as the stockpiles change over time.

Overburden / Stripping Example

An overlay of the point clouds captured from a LiDAR UAV / Drone is made into strips and overlaid on the final rendered surface.  Being able to determine ground surface from the tops of trees and vegetation is critical for volume calculations.

LiDAR Point Cloud Example

A stockpile yard scanned and processed, the rendered surfaces ready for volumetric modeling.  Point cloud data can be created from UAV / Drone and combined with LiDAR data.
