3GSM develops and markets systems for three-dimensional acquisition and assessment of rock, terrain, and object surfaces using digital imagery and computer vision.
Our BlastMetriX 3D software, specifically dedicated to the blasting industry, provides maximum results.
Blast design, blast planning software
Easy, in-field usage...no “Cloud” necessary
Terrestrial camera option for “no fly” operations
Accepts images from several drone manufacturers
Computation of the true (minimum) burden
Detailed profile report for drilling and loading of explosives
Aids in fly-rock mitigation and vibration reduction
Superior mapping and volumes measurements
Reduction of production costs
ShapeMetriX 3D is an easy-to-use system to acquire surfaces with three-dimensional images. This dedicated software enables digital rock mass characterisation including geometric measurements and geologic mapping capabilities.
Reproducible acquisition of rock mass conditions
Measurement of position, distances, areas
Sectional views (cross sections), profiles
Measurement of spatial orientations (dip angle & dip direction)
Simple, efficient application (taking pictures)
Comprehensive, life-like documentation
Reproducible rock mass conditions
Improved rock mass characterisation
Generation of 3D images from drone imagery for face profiling, blast design and analysis.
Aerial 3D images allow for an optimal acquisition of the bench face and blast site geometry especially of larger sites. With the 3D model the drill pattern is adapted according to the geometric and geologic conditions. Poor blasting results are often caused by inaccuracy of the front row hole placement and inaccurate blast pattern geometry.
3D images from drones are a perfect survey of large blast sites.
Comprehensive and Complete
Suryeying and documentation in a single step
Including software for 3D blast design
Easily combined with rock mass characterisation – see ShapeMetriX UAV
Face profiles (burden diagrams and maps)
Volume to blast
Pre-post blast comparison
