Made Fast, Easy and AccurateStockpile Volume CalculationStockpile
Stockpile is a pile or storage of materials/product. In the mining, this could be the dump of material/mineral extracted through the mining process. Stockpiles exist across many industries and these include construction areas, industrial facilities, refineries and ports.
The stockpile volume calculation is an important part of any business. It's not just a simple matter of measuring the materials lying around on the floor, but it requires you to use surveying technology to accurately measure the volume of your accumulated materials. This means that you'll need to know how much material is in your stockpile, how much is needed for moving or production, and how much space will be needed for storing it.
There are different ways to measure stockpiles and some of them are:
Total Station: A surveying tool used by professionals to measure the coordinates
GPS: Survey grade GPS measures in global coordinates
Other modern technologies: includes scanners, drones etc.
If you're in the mining industry, you know that stockpiles are a huge part of your business. Whether you're storing material extracted through mining, or just keeping track of what's been extracted so far, a stockpile is a valuable resource. But how do you calculate the volume of your stockpile? There are different ways volumes of such stockpiles are obtained.
The first way is to measure them manually which involves extensive exercise in CAD and spreadsheet programs to plot and calculate the quantity. This method might be laborious and might result with erroneous results.
Another way which is more common is by using software applications that eases this procedure. AutoPlotter is one such software that is predominantly used for volume calculation by processing the survey data.

How does the Auto Plotter Calculate the Stockpile Volume?
First, the data from the material site is collected using site surveying instruments, which contain coordinate data. This data is imported into the Auto Plotter software to estimate stockpile volume accurately. It supports multiple data formats that help to calculate the volume with extreme ease and precise results.
How to calculate Stockpile Site Volume using Autoplotter?
The software automatically reads the data of various surveying instruments and helps to generate the accurate volumes using different methods. This way, one can analyse the stockpile volume estimation with an easy, fast and reliable technique.
What is stockpile measurement?
Stockpile measurement is the technique used to determine a commodity stockpile’s size, weight, or volume.
Which industries can benefit from stockpile volume calculation software?
Construction, mining, industrial, ports and similar industries can benefit from stockpile volume calculation software.
