3D Mine Mapping from Surface to Subsurface

Watch our new video of 3D scanning of a mine, starting with an aerial view of the headframe, down the 1,700 foot vertical shaft and through 3 miles of underground workings. The result is a complete georeferenced data set for a digital twin of the entire surface and subsurface mining operations. Ultimate Reality Capture Tool…

Smart Engineering: Digital Twins Before Upgrades

3D models of as-builts help power industry engineers modify and upgrade assets. Our 3D scanning services are safe, fast and accurate to produce digital twins of power plants, substations and other assets before upgrading. Power companies trust Darling Geomatics. We’ve scanned more than eight power plants, 12 substations and surveyed thousands of miles of transmission…

Thermal Imaging UAVs for Solar Plant Inspections

Our aerial thermography for solar panel field evaluations provides data on efficiencies of power generation, panel service life, and return on the investment. Our FLIR-equipped UAVs with Zenmuse XT 640×512 resolution radiometric infrared camera lowers the cost of services that would otherwise require a helicopter.

Our Supplier Diversity Certifications

Federal and state governments set goals of awarding certain percentages of prime and subcontracting dollars to businesses to proactively develop and expand supplier diversity. Our certifications help our clients and teaming partners meet these supplier diversity requirements.

3D Structural Assessment of Plant Before Modifications
