Tunnel Face Mapping

Sixense Oceania

DIY accurate 3D modelling of tunnel faces with automatic photogrammetry processing.

When excavating tunnels in complex geology using drill and blast technology, mapping the successive tunnel faces is necessary to better understand the structure of the underground.

We've developped a fully digital solution for tunnel face mapping using high resolution photogrammetry.

Our solution is a comprehensive package that gives you the capability to create yourself accurate 3D models of tunnels face in minutes.

Pika™ Features

All in one kit for data acquisition

We provide a comprehensive hardware kit and training so you can take photos yourself.

The characteristics of the kit depend on a combination of the diameter of the tunnel and accuracy you are looking for.

All in one kit for data acquisition

Take & upload photos

Take successive photos following the procedure to ensure necessary overlap.

Then directly upload the photos to the beMap platform and the photogrametric process will start.

Accurate 3D face model

Depending on the size of the tunnel after only a few minutes the system generates a georeferenced and accurate 3D model of the tunnel face, ready to analyse.

Accurate 3D face model

Comprehensive tool box

beMap includes a tool-box to analyse your model: Distance, angle, comparison, annotations, etc...

Add geology

Annotations tools are also avaialble to map the geology of the face.

Metadata will help gathering and consolidating information of the whole project.

Global integration

Additional georeferenced scanning of the tunnel and consolidation with face photogrammetry provides the complete mapping of the structure and its geology.
