Application of small format terrestrial photogrammetry in monitoring open pit mine wall stability
Results of research carried out into the application of small format analytical photogrammetric systems for geotechnical analysis in modern open pit mines, are presented.
Techniques using inexpensive 35mm and 70mm cameras with personal computer-based small format stereo-digitisers (Adam MPS2) are investigated with respect to their use in spatially locating and defining geotechnical features and analysing and monitoring open pit stability.
