  • Patent number: 10235566
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for utilizing digital aerial images to determine stockpile volumes. In particular, in one or more embodiments, the disclosed systems and methods utilize a UAV to capture a plurality of digital aerial images portraying stockpiles on a site. The disclosed systems and methods can generate a two-dimensional representation of the site and a three-dimensional representation of the site based on the plurality of digital aerial images. Moreover, the disclosed systems and methods can apply an elevation filter to the three-dimensional representation of the site to identify potential stockpiles. Further, the disclosed systems and methods can utilize a neural network to analyze two-dimensional features and three-dimensional features of the potential stockpiles to identify final stockpiles. The disclosed systems and methods can then utilize three-dimensional stockpile representations to determine stockpile volumes.

  • Publication number: 20180040137
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for generating georeference information with respect to aerial images. In particular, in one or more embodiments, systems and methods generate georeference information relating to aerial images captured without ground control points based on existing aerial images. For example, systems and methods can access a new set of aerial images without ground control points and utilize existing aerial images containing ground control points to generate a georeferenced representation corresponding to the features of the new set of aerial images. Similarly, systems and methods can access a new image without ground control points and utilize an existing georeferenced orthomap to produce a georeferenced orthomap corresponding to the features of the new image. One or more embodiments of the disclosed systems and methods permit users to obtain georeference information related to new images without the need to place ground control points or collect additional georeference information.

  • Patent number: 9846975
    Abstract: Disclosed systems and methods generate filtered, three-dimensional models with regard to a site. In particular, one or more embodiments include systems and methods that generate a filtered, three-dimensional model by removing one or more non-ground objects from a three-dimensional model of the site. Specifically, one or more embodiments of the disclosed systems and methods remove objects from a three-dimensional representation of a site by applying an initial filter to the three-dimensional representation, identifying regions corresponding to types of terrain within the three-dimensional representation, and applying another filter with parameters particular to the identified regions.

  • Patent number: 9389084
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed toward systems and methods for identifying changes to a target site based on aerial images of the target site. For example, systems and methods described herein generate representations of the target site based on aerial photographs provided by an unmanned aerial vehicle. In one or more embodiments, systems and method described herein identify differences between the generated representations in order to detect changes that have occurred at the target site.
