Identify and measure landform geometry

Designing long-term, stable wasterock landforms (WRL) that resist erosion and degradation is closely linked to their structural geometry, such as slope angle, height and length. Geometric assessments of a WRL may allow for early identification of areas not constructed to design, and for preemptive implementation of remedial work.

Decipher Geometry is a remote sensing approach for the measurement of WRL geometry. You can easily identify and measure landform geometry such as batters, berms, crest bunds as well as erosion gullies.

In conjunction with other Decipher modules, you can also assess how the landform is affecting its surrounding environment. Geometric assessments and monitoring of WRL in Decipher allows for early identification of areas not constructed to design, and for preemptive implementation of remedial work. It also assists in ensuring that final structure is safe and stable which is fundamental to meeting closure criteria and outcomes.

Batter, berms, & crest bund measurements

Geoprocessing for geometric deconstruction to identify and measure Batter Height, Batter Slope Angle, Batter Slope Length, Berm Width, Berm Slope Angle, Crest Bund Height, Crest Bund Width.

Measure erosion gullies

Harnessing geometric construction of landform geometry measures, you can easily identify erosion gully area, volume, mean, maximum and average width over time to determine stability.

3D visualisation & navigation

Visualise landform geometry and erosion gully measurement outputs over time in a 3D interactive view, provided by the Potree technology. Alternatively, you can import any type of LiDAR datasets for basic viewing and measurements.
