Take timely data-driven decisions at every stage of the mining lifecycle with ATLAS AI-powered platform

Analyze drone data faster

ATLAS removes the manual routine and saves hours of manpower in drone data analysis. Share the critical data with all the stakeholders in one click as direct links accessible from mobile (iOS/Android) and desktop.

Improve the safety of your team

Drone survey in replace of a traditional ground survey coupled with AI-based drone image processing allows keeping people off the ground, away from areas of stockpiles, blasting operations and other hazards.

Cost-effective quarry monitoring

Perform regular monitoring of your quarry or pit (calculate stockpile sizes, visualize site conditions, check machinery, etc) with higher accuracy compared to manual labeling and analysis and at a fraction of a cost.

Main Features

ATLAS contains its own AI-engine, which learns from user's activity and automates regular inspections of pits and quarries

Quarry monitoring
Make the regular monitoring of the quarry more efficient by automating routine tasks. Highlight stockpiles, measure areas and calculate volumes automatically, build elevation maps. Calculate materials to be removed before further extractions. Search for potential issues using a territory segmentation.  
Auditing the stockpile
ATLAS utilizes computer vision and AI to inexpensively calculate stockpile inventories on a regular basis. Measure stockpiles and excavated materials in open pits, compare volume and track changes with a higher precision and time efficiency. Detects heavy vehicles and vegetation on top of a pile and remove them from DSM to make volumes more realistic.
Support drilling and blasting operations
Analysis of pre-blast survey data (pre-blast block condition and volumes) helps calculate drill depth and plan the blast. Automatically measure stockpile volumes to accelerate clearance of the blast area. Preserve the visual reports of the site before and post-blast for comparisons in case of an accident and measurements of blast efficiency.
Plan the traffic in the quarry
ATLAS enables automatic assessment of haul roads on a regular basis for accurate traffic planning and optimization. Measure slopes, calculate haul road length, search for visual patterns with ATLAS AI detectors to assess the road conditions. Localize and count heavy machinery with object detection and counting functions.
Optimize water management
Whether you mine aggregates or mineral resources, use AI detectors and their capabilities (count objects, measure areas, calculate volumes, and create elevation profiles) to optimize water management plan for your quarry of pit. Regularly measure tailing storage and search for potential issues before disastrous changes.
Track progress and compare
Keep the data of all assets on the timeline with easy access to different slices of the same object along with ability to compare, and receive visual reports for all changes in a specified working area. Store raw aerial photography, orthomosaics, DSM, vector data (DXF, KML, Shape), and any additional files.
Customers in 150+ countries use SPH Engineering solutions daily for drone mission planning, flight control, and data management
How ATLAS works
With 3 simple steps turn your aerial images into business insights!
1.  Upload data
Upload images or orthomosaic to the ATLAS cloud or your locally deployed ATLAS On-Premises for higher data security
2. Visualise, annotate and analyze
Visualize geospatial data, annotate objects manually or with AI detectors, measure and analyze data
3. Export and share reports
Export results in GeoJSON, CSV, PDF and other formats or share them with one click with colleagues and stakeholders
The workflow
Quick start with your AI detector
ATLAS is simple to use not requiring GIS and data science knowledge. The webinar unfolds the process of ad-hoc training your AI-powered algorithm on annotated data following the 3 easy steps.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Detections performed by AI detectors are visible on the map/image, though counting, area size, and export functions are blocked. 
Once you confirm you are satisfied with the accuracy of the detection results, you will be prompted to approve the payment amount to be added to your balance, which will unlock the display of object counts, area sizes, and export of vector results.
