Leaders in Satellite Topography for Mining and Energy
Over 500 highly accurate mapping projects completed

Volumetrics at Suncor's Oil Sands Mines

Regular topographic mapping has helped Suncor monitor its mine site and tailings disposal areas, with elevation accuracies better than 20cm processed from DigitalGlobe's WorldView satellite photos. Read case study.


PhotoSat has invented a process that generates the world’s most accurate satellite topographic mapping. This engineering quality data shortens timelines and eliminates surveying delays in all phases of resource and engineering projects. Our clients are using satellite topography as a cost-effective alternative to ground surveying and airborne LiDAR mapping.
