Newest Virtual Surveyor Software Highlights Dangerous Slope Angles in Sand Pits, Quarries, Escarpments

Focus on Safe Operations

AARSCHOT, Belgium, 31 March 2020 – Virtual Surveyor has introduced a new feature in Version 7.2 of its popular drone surveying software that automatically highlights terrain slopes that exceed dangerous steepness thresholds. Called Slope Threshold lens, this capability significantly enhances the safety of operations in sand pits, quarries and other dynamic environments with steep terrains.

“With the click of a button, operators of sand pits and quarries can see precisely where the escarpments surrounding their excavations have exceeded user-specified slope angles,” said Tom Op ‘t Eyndt, CEO of Virtual Surveyor nv in Belgium. “This enables the managers of sand pit dredging operations, for example, to remediate the situation before the slope collapses and hurts workers.”

Virtual Surveyor software bridges the gap between UAV photogrammetric processing applications and engineering design packages. The software generates an…
