Recent Developments in Close Range Photogrammetry (CRP) for Mining and Reclamation
This report presents the potential of close range photogrammetry for mining and reclamation. The mining reclamation community depends on accurate mapping for almost all activities. Traditional ground surveys are adequate for small, uncomplicated jobs but at some point, the size and or complexity of a project makes it more economical to have a site flown (mapped using aerial photogrammetry). Because of cost, most projects are only flown at the start and less often when completed. Close Range Photogrammetry (CRP) offers much potential for measuring features that cant or aren’t being measured otherwise.
