Troy, NY, November 25, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- H2H was on hand at this year’s annual MSHA Annual Training Resources Applied to Mining (TRAM) Conference to present on mobile mapping. The seminar provided opportunities for health and safety trainers to improve their training programs with new ideas and new materials. This year’s theme was “Tune Up Your Training!” and featured presentations from some of the industry’s most respected safety trainers, including H2H’s very own Mark Farber.
Mr. Farber addressed mobile mapping in the mining industry and identified the most current instruments and technology ideal for mining, types of mobile mapping systems and the integration of mobile mapping data for use in the mining industry. “The new technology that H2H is using, drastically improves safety by reducing the overall exposure time for surveyors, reducing employee exposure to dangerous locations and eliminates the need for repeated surveys”, Farber noted.
H2H uses aerial drones, mobile laser scanners, RTK GPS units, total stations, underground mobile scanners and marine based survey vessels capturing above and below waterline point cloud data.
These tools are used individually and together to provide numerous services including: aerial mapping of quarries and mine sites, topographic mapping, underground mine mapping, bathymetric mapping for underwater operations, production estimates and calculations, stockpile and inventory assessments, integration with geologic and ore quality information for planning, evaluation of tunnel and highwall stability and geologic mapping.
H2H Associates was established in 2005 to provide engineering, environmental, remedial, and construction-related services to both public and private clients throughout North, South and Central America. H2H consists of environmental professionals, geologists, hydrogeologists, engineers, scientists, and survey mapping professionals.
