measuring stockpile - heap
How do you guys go around of measuring stockpiles of sand/dirt?
I need to measure +- 15 stockpiles of sand on a construction site.
At the moment I take a GNSS receiver, crawl on the stockpile, measure and afterwards calculate in Civil3D the volumes...
Other/Better suggestions? I don't have a drone available 🙂
A job made for drones. Scanning would be good also.
Ekillo is right - working on stockpiles of sand, especially those with slopes approaching the angles of repose, can be super dangerous. Easy to get your self buried and trapped. At the least you need to have an observer around who can call for help. Google "stockpile safety".
You might want to look up @mike-berry; he posted a few years ago about an IPhone APP, that measures stockpiles...
