Mines & Aggregates Analytics : cloud.delair.ai

Delair.ai platform offers a variety of Advanced Analytics for the Mining & Aggregates business, either for managing production with solutions for the stock management, or for site management itself : Safety Analytics serving mines and quarries operations,  high walls and haul road monitoring.

IMPORTANT: Following the integration of Airware legacy Software by Delair as from end 2018, Mines & Aggregates solutions are currently hosted at cloud.delair.ai. They will be migrated to delair.ai in a single and merged platform in the course of Fall 2019. Information hereafter relates to the product workflows & features only within the cloud.delair.ai user interface, and information below will be updated as from migration date. 

Delair applies analytics to the acquired data to describe, predict, and improve business performance. 

On the right side of the page, the "Analytics" tab of the dashboard allows you to display different items on the map of your site in order to analyze them.

Analytic's allows for you to monitor your sites by displaying, measuring and improving its activity to assure the maximization of your production.

Those analytics are computed in order to increase the productivity, to guide you with safety measures, and to participate in the reflections concerning future arrangements of the exploitation.

The analytics tab works  through a tree system as folders.

You can:

  • Click on the folder when it's closed to display the items in it.
  • Click on the folder when it's open to hide the items in it.
  • Select one item by ticking the box next to it to display it on the map.
  • Select the folder by ticking the box next to it to select everything in it.
  • Select one or several folders and items
  • Place your cursor next to the box of an item to display a location button and center the map over the item
  • If at least one item is selected in the folder, a "-" icon appears in the folder's ticking box so you can easily  unselect this folder's items.
  • Each analytic is considered as a layer that adds up the map to indicate a specific information.                    

1. Contour Lines

A contour line is a line on a map which joins all the points of equal height. This analytic allows you to view the different levels of your site.

Two types of contour lines are drawn on the map:

  • Yellow lines are separated by one meter high
  • Brown lines are separated by 5 meters high

These values may change depending on the maximum depth of your site so that this analytic may adapt to be as relevant as possible for your analysis.

When you place your cursor on a line, a message appears displaying the elevation. If you click on the line, the message will stay so you can compare this line with others.

2. GCP

This analytic allows you to display the site's Ground Control Points (GCP).

The GCPs are points of known coordinates on the site. Their coordinates have been measured with traditional surveying methods, or have been obtained by other sources (LiDAR, older maps of the area, Web Map Service). They significantly increase the absolute accuracy of the survey; and can also be used as checkpoints to verify the certainty of the results.

By placing your cursor over a GCP icon, a message with information about it will appear; eg. Id, coordinates, and elevation.

When you click on the GCP, a picture of the actual GCP on the site appears above the information in the message popup. Also, the message popup stays until you click somewhere else, so you are able to compare with other items.

3. Markers

You can display the annotations and blastings on the site. You can click on the annotation or the blasting for more information.


4. Stockpile Module

The stockpile module is an additional module that let's you have advanced analytics of your site's production. The Stockpile module provides you accurately detected stockpiles as an Analytic  overview of your production. 

4.1. Production

4.1.1. Stockpile Detection

The first step of the Stockpile module is detection of Stockpiles with their volumes, areas, and height.

The Stockpile module gives you a very accurate detection of each Stockpile with its precise Volume.

Without the Stockpile module, you can perform four kinds of volume computation. (See Perform Measurement page)

However, on uneven ground, none of the four volume calculation methods may provide an accurate volume assessment of your stockpile or scree. 

The stockpile module provides such customized base surface calculation and hands you an incredibly accurate volume.

The Volume calculation is computed thanks to a two steps semi-automatic process: 

  • A Delair Machine Learning algorithm at the cutting-edge of technology detects your stockpile and compute their volume. 
  • In-house surveyors provide quality checks and quality assessments to make sure of the accuracy of the values.

The detected stockpiles are displayed on a layer of the Analytics panel. It allows you to display markers around your productions. A brown area appears over the site's stockpiles to detect the productions easily.

This method gives you the best possible results and makes sure that you can analyse accurately detected stockpiles.


Computing the volume of your stockpiles is really useful as you can calculate your total production and submit it for regular controls.

When you place your cursor above a stockpile, a message appears displaying information about the stockpile (ID, Volume, Area, Height, Material Type). If you click on the stockpile, the message will stay so you can compare the stockpile to others.

In a quarry, each stockpile corresponds to a granulometry type, you can enter this type in the pop-up.

4.1.2. Stockpile Reports

With the Stockpile Module, Stockpiles Statistics Reports are automatically computed with the elements of your account on the application. In order to have exhaustive and informative stockpiles reports, it is better to register your material types as shown in the Material Types page.

To access those statistics:

  • Open a Location
  • On the toolbar, click on Statistics
  • Click on Stockpiles below the Toolbar

4.1.2.1. Stockpiles

A popup appears displaying various statistics on your Locations.

The popup consists of:

  • A left panel with the list of all your locations and a pie chart.
  • Several charts on the right panel : 
  • Total volume per location 
  • Volume per material type
  • A detailed list of the volumes per material type on each location

You can filter the statistics by only  clicking on the location in the list of locations that you want to display.

4.1.2.2. List of Locations

A list of all your locations with an associated color is displayed for you to understand the pie chart.

This pie chart displays the stockpile volumes at the location. When you place your cursor over a wedge on the pie chart, the name of the location with the volume is displayed.

4.1.2.3. Total Volume per Location

The first graph shows the volume of stockpile on each location throughout the year. The locations are represented by the same colors on the pie chart. 

When you place your cursor on a point, a message displays the date of the survey and the precise volume of the stockpiles of that survey.

4.1.2.3. Volume per Material Type

The second graph is an histogram that shows the volume of stockpile per type of material. 

When you place your cursor on a rectangle, a message displays the type of material and the total volume of stockpiles of that material.

4.1.2.4. List

Behind the charts, a list of all the locations with the volume of stockpile by material type and survey date is displayed. It is possible to export this list in an Excel format.

5. Haul Road Module

This option allows you to emphasize four features of your site's haul roads :

  • Haul roads
  • Crossfalls
  • Grades
  • Width

The analytic leads to better productivity and cost savings due to its many value propositions : 

  • Inspecting Contractors during Haul Road Construction
  • Improve Haul Road Maintenance Planning
  • Control Outages/Impairments due to Water Events
  • Control Outages/Impairments due to Road Wear

5.1. Haul Road Diagnosis

The Efficiency module will help you get the best out of your quarry through the optimisation of your Haul Roads and your assets. It features an Analytic that displays many information about your Haul Roads.

This analytic allows you to emphasize four features of your site's haul roads :

  • Haul roads
  • Crossfalls
  • Grades
  • Width

5.1.1. Haul Roads

Allows you to display a black area over the hauls road. You can easily notice where the haul roads are and can make diagnosis for them with the other features. This Analytics gives you an haul roads map.

5.1.2. Crossfalls

Allows you to visualize the transverse slopes of the roads surface, i.e. the angle between an horizontal plan and your haul road. The cross-falls appears as black arrows pointing towards the low part of the road. It is important to analyse the crossfalls for you to check the water flux. For example, it allows you to spot at its early stage a water retention problam that could cause the haul road to be impracticable.

Measuring crossfalls allows you to spot:

  • High erosion areas
  • Stagnant water areas

When you place your cursor above an arrow, a message appears displaying information about the haul road transverse part (Percentage of slope, Width of the road and delta Z). If you click on the arrow, the message will stay so you can compare the cross-falls.

5.1.3. Grades

Allows you to display the gradients of the roads. The slopes are represented by lines that are colored according to their grades value.

Colors represent the grades so you can easily see which slope is too steep. The colors are : 

  • Green for a slope that is less than 10%, 
  • Yellow for a slope that is from 10% to 15%, 
  • Orange for a slope between 15% and 20% 
  • Red for a slope greater than 20%

When you place your cursor above a line, a message appears displaying information about the haul road (Percentage of slope, delta Z and length of the fragment). If you click on the line, the message will stay so you can compare the slope to others. The average slope of haul roads must be optimal and must never be superior to 20 %. The slope has to be the softest possible on the way up as in the descent. This requirement allows to reduce both the fuel consumption and the amount of material which can fall of the tip-cart.

5.1.4. Width

Allows you to display the width of the roads. In the case of several trucks crossing each other, it is important to know danger zones.

This displays colored lines on each side of the road to represent the width. The width are color coded so you can easily see which road is too narrow. The colors are : Orange for a dangerous area, yellow for a narrow area, light green for a one way road, dark green for a two way road and black for an intersection.

The color code is based on classic parameters for haul roads:

  • Every haul road thinner than 3 times the width of a truck is considered as a one way road
  • Every haul road which width is between 3 and 3.5 times the width of a truck is considered as a two way road only on straight lines.
  • Every haul road that is larger than 3.5 times the width of a truck is considered as a two way road even in corners.

The reference truck used on those calculations is the biggest truck on the quarry.

6. Safety Module

The Safety Module allows you to ensure better workforce safety, to enhanced regulator relationship and to have a better relationship with the community stakeholders through several Analytics.

6.1. Safety Measures

The module allows you to emphasize three features of the site's safety measures:

  • Safety berms
  • Safety berm heights
  • Safety block heights

6.1.1. Safety Berms

Safety berms are linear deposit next to the haul roads. Allows you to display a dotted light brown line for the toes (bottom) of the safety berms and a plain dark brown line for the crests (top). You can then notice easily where the safety berms are.

6.1.2. Safety Berms Heights

Allows you to display lines on the berms that link the crest to the toe every ten meters.

Colors help you to visually evaluate your safety berms : 

  • Red lines represent safety berms which height is less than 1 meter, 
  • Light green lines represent berms which height is from 1 meter to 1.2 meters 
  • Dark green lines represent berms which height is greater than 1.2 meters

The values depend on the parameters you want according to the trucks on your sites.

You can visualize if the berms are high enough for the trucks you would like to use.

When you place your cursor above a line, a message appears displaying the height of the berm on this point and the biggest truck that can go on that road. Indeed the safety berms height must be at least half of the truck's wheel height. If you click on the line, the message will stay so you can compare the height to others.

6.1.3. Safety Blocks Heights

Allows you to display dots on the safety blocks.

Colors help you to visually evaluate your safety blocks : 

  • Red dots represent safety blocks which height is less than 1 meter, 
  • Light green dots represent blocks which height is from 1 meter to 1.2 meters 
  • Dark green dots represent blocks which height is greater than 1.2 meters

You can visualize if the blocks are high enough for the trucks you would like to use. Safety blocks along the haul roads must be as high as half the tire of the biggest truck on the quarry to avoid every type of accident or swaying of the assets.

When you place your cursor above a dot, a message appears displaying the height of the block and the biggest truck that can go on that road. If you click on a block, the message will stay so you can compare the height to others.

6.2. High Walls Analysis

This Analytic allows you to emphasize four features of your site's highwalls :

  • Toes and Crests
  • Heights
  • Impact Areas
  • Slopes

6.2.1. Toes and Crests

Allows you to display a dotted yellow line for the toes (bottom) of the highwalls and a plain orange line for the crests (top). It is interesting to know about toes and crest in order to prepare future operations.

6.2.2. Heights

Allows you to display lines on the highwalls that link the crest to the toe every ten meters.

NB: In France, highwalls are not supposed to be higher than 15 meters according to the law and not higher than 30 meters with a special permit.

Those lines are color coded : Red lines represent highwalls which height is greater than 15.5 meters, yellow lines represent highwalls which height is from 14.5 meters to 15.5 meters and green lines represent highwalls which height is less than 14.5 meters.

When you place your cursor above a line, a message appears displaying the height of the highwall on this point. If the user clicks on the line, the message will stay so he can compare the height to others.

6.2.3. Impact Areas

Allows you to display the impact areas. You can localize where the materials will fall. 

The impact areas are the potential areas where the collapsing materials could go at the furthest. This area is the maximum area and should be considered as a hazard area.

Displaying those areas is interesting for two reasons :

  • If there is a haul road at the bottom of an highwall, you should consider those areas to make the road safer
  • If two highwalls are close to each other, materials collapsing from the first one might bring materials from the second one to collapse. The impact areas can be helpful to evaluate the minimal distance between two highwalls

The impact areas depend on the height of the highwalls and the type of material.

When you place your cursor above an area, a message appears displaying the area of the impact area. If you click on the area, the message will stay so you can compare the area to others.

6.2.4. Slopes

For certain types of material (like sand, because it is more likely to fall), it is interesting  to know the slopes of the highwalls. Indeed, it will help understanding the stability of the material on the walls.

A color code allows you to visually analyze the slopes of your highwalls.

When you place your cursor above an area, a message appears displaying the grades of the slopes. If you click on the area, the message will stay so you can compare the area to others.

7. Third-party Modules

Delair cooperates with industry leaders in order to provide a complete solution. Cooperation with EPC and Caterpillar resulted in two additional modules that will help you manage your site as efficiently as possible.

7.1. EPC Blast Module

The EPC Blast folder contains the realized blasts and their analysis done by the EPC Groupe. This folder allows the EPC group to display their data about the site's blasting so you can easily access these. The blasting are ordered by date (Year/Month) and type (A-93, C1, C2, C...).

When selecting the box next to a blast, the blast appears on the map. Moreover, when you place your cursor over a blast, information on the blast are displayed in a message next to the analytics panel.

7.2. Idle Module

This option is rendering Caterpillar idle data from assets (Loaders, haulers and others). Within the Analytics panel, you can easily understand the idling data of your assets. 

On the Analytics Panel of your site, you can explore the Asset Fleet Analysis option. When you enable this option by ticking the box on the right side of the folder, you have access to all the solution's tools to analyse your idle data.

Learn more about the Idle Module.

8. Custom Analytics

The custom analytics are specific to each site.

8.1 Imported Layers

You can import your own layers into the analytics panel. Contact the Airware team and send the additional layer. 

Delair's team will then import the layers and you will be able to display the specific customized information you wanted.

Those information are often topographic map on a .dwg format. In the example below, the imported layers are displaying land register parcels, authorization perimeter, exploitation perimeter, electrical network, water networks and infrastructure.

The three first analytics displayed on that example are very typical:

  • Land register parcel: A lot of quarries don't belong to the manager but belong to different people by parcels. It is then interesting to know the boundaries of the parcels so you can calculate the extracted volume on those and pay the exploitation fee according to this volume.
  • Authorization perimeter: This perimeter is the large boundaries of the site.
  • Exploitation perimeter: This perimeter is the boundaries of the actual quarry where the manager is allowed to extract materials.
  • Other perimeters: Specific perimeters can be computed. For example, sometimes, archaeological sites can be discovered on quarries, the user can then compute the boundaries of that site where a special treatment has to be considered by the user on that area.

8.2. Analytics created by Delair

You can ask for specific analytics from Delair's team. The Airware team will do surveys in that purpose and compute the analytics in the Delair application. Those analytics are special requests from a client. 

Examples of those analytics:

The manager of the quarry has to leave the site, at the end of the exploitation, at a certain level for a rehabilitation project. For him to apprehend his goal, he asked for contour lines that would indicate what the current elevation is, compared to the goal level. The cut and fills areas compared to the offset elevation are displayed.


A client wanted to calculate the productivity of autonomous trucks against man-driven trucks. Delair's team performed two flights a day for 17 days in order to create this specific analytic for the user. The push distance was computed for the machines and displayed on Delair application.

For a construction site, Delair's team can compute the construction map on the orthophotography map in order to help the site's manager survey the evolution of his construction.


9. General Features of cloud.delair.ai

9.1. Maps

The Maps tab on the side panel allows you to change the representation of your surveyed site by clicking on the icon of the desired map type with the associated image.

If you require a new map type, you can send a request with your data to Delair team. If possible, Delair will add  the map to the features.

The maps have been created by compiling the drone survey imagery. They are necessary to accurately analyze your site.

9.1.1. Orthophotography

Orthophotographic imagery is used to accurately measure distances as it is a representation of the Earth’s surface. 

Orthophotography offers several advantages over satellite imagery of a site:

  • The first factor is in relation to resolution. Despite the fact large amounts of data have to be acquired, an orthophoto from a drone is able to capture larger frames than ever before, which implies that less runs are needed to map an area. It is therefore a cheaper solution. 
  • In addition, the time it takes to acquire the images is less than it would be through satellite. 
  • Another factor is due to weather circumstances. If you have heavy cloud coverage, then it will be difficult for a satellite to obtain high resolution images, especially given the fact that it orbits around the earth once or twice a day and therefore you have no control over when it goes around the site. With a drone, you decide when is the right time to obtain orthophotography images; therefore, orthophotography images are more updated, more accurate, have better location accessibility,  better speed and coverage, as well as cost advantages.

To view your Orthophoto map model, select “Orthophotography” in the “Maps” tab located on the right-hand side dashboard.

9.1.2. Dynamic Surface Model

Overview

The dynamic surface model map is using colors to represent the elevations of every point of the site. It is also possible to reveal shades in places of the hills to highlights the important features of the site. 

Workflow

Select “Surface Model” in the “Maps” tab to see the different elevations of the points of your site.

An histogram below the surface model icon in the Analytics panel helps you understand what is the elevation represented by each color.

Seven features are noticeable on the histogram frame :

  • Histogram
  • Legend
  • Viewport
  • Zoom to the viewport
  • Adjust colors to the current mapview
  • Settings
  • Hide and Display

Histogram

The histogram represents the areas of the site according to their elevation. The histogram is also color coded as each elevation is represented by a color.

When you use the comparison tools, the histogram have a peculiar behavior. Go to Comparison modes for more information on that behavior.

Legend

The shaded colors of the legend allows you to understand what elevation is represented by a color. The legend specifies what elevations are represented by the two extreme colors. Moreover, when your are placing your cursor over a color of the legend, it indicates what's the corresponding elevation.

Viewport

You can create a precision frame to easily modify the range of colors of the elevations thanks to handles on each side of the view-port.

Every point of the map that is lower than this range is colored blank and every point that is higher than this range is colored light purple on the map. The Viewport allows you to have a more precise view of the elevations in a certain range by isolating it on a viewport.

Above the range frame, the area covered by those elevations is indicated.

In the viewport, you have the option of choosing the lowest and the highest elevation by clicking on the elevations on each side of the viewport to bring up the text fields. The scale of the Surface model adapts to the new viewport, allowing you to view a particular range of elevation.

The viewport will handle four behaviors. You can:

Select it :

Drag it :

Resize it:

Clear it:

Zoom to the viewport

The "Zoom to the viewport" option allows you to zoom in the histogram on the part that is contained in the viewport, so part of the histogram (a range of elevations) that you want to focus on will be stretched for a greater precision. The colors of the map do not change because only the view of the histogram is modified.

You can have a more precise histogram in this viewport. This option can be activated and every viewport you create will be zoomed on or deactivated and the entire histogram will be displayed.

For example, before the option is activated:

And after, the viewport is zoomed:

Adjust colors to the current mapview

If you want to see the elevation in a visual way of an area you are currently viewing, you can use the "Adjust the colors to the current map view" option. This option will calculate the lowest and the highest elevation in the view and range the histogram to these two elevations. You will have a more precise elevation histogram of your view and will be able to see the elevation way more precisely on this view.

Settings

Settings displays two more options:

Colors

 This option allows you to choose the shading you prefer. This panel provides 3 choices :

  • Blue to red
  • Green to red
  • White to black

Hillshade intensity

 This option allows you to choose if you want to see the hills of your site through the colors or not. This option provide three choices:

  • None, the hillshades will not be seen through the surface model map
  • Low, the map will display the hillshades but they will be very transparent
  • High, the map will display the hillshades and the user can see them well

Hide and Display

Allows you to hide or display the histogram.

When you use the comparison tools, the histogram have a peculiar behavior. Go to Comparison modes for more information on that behavior.

9.1.3. Change Map

Overview

The Change Map is a dynamic, interactive image layer that represents the elevation difference or change between the currently active DSM and any other DSM.

After generating a Change Map between two survey dates, discrete interactive Change Map areas are created for cuts and fills. These areas are grouped and saved on the Analytics tab of the side panel, and each Change Map area can be converted into an annotation.

Use Cases

By viewing the Change Map, you can:

  • Identify where earthmoving activity has occurred, and where materials and other equipment have been introduced or moved.
  • Estimate volume changes (cut/fill) between surveys,
  • Isolate or filter areas of specific elevation change,
  • Identify areas of concern based on expected activity on the site

Workflow

  1. Specify a previous survey to compare to the existing surface model.
  2. Select ‘Generate’
  3. If a Change Map has not been generated previously, the System will generate a new Change Map between the current DSM and the requested past DSM. Note: It may take a few minutes to load but you can still work in the application on other tasks while you wait.
  4. If the Change Map has been generated previously for a pair of DSMs, it will display immediately.
  5. You will be notified once processing is complete. The dynamic Change Map is visible on top of your site orthophoto.
  6. Alter the color ramp to isolate or filter out specific ranges of elevation change where red represents “cut” and blue represents “fill.”
  7. Alter the opacity (full transparency at zero) of the Change Map to view the current orthophoto in places where No Change has occurred
  8. The application will dynamically adjust cut and fill differences based on the map window shown in the browser. In other words, zooming in or out will change the cut/fill differences shown in the dashboard.

Change Map Areas - Saved to Analytics Tab

9.1.4. Slope Map

The slope map represents the steepness of the slopes on the site.  To view your Slope map model, select “Slope map” in the “Maps” tab located on the right-hand side dashboard.

On this type of map, the white areas indicate a flat surface, and the dark areas indicate a steep surface. This makes it easier to track changes to your site, and one of its most widely used features is to measure the volume of stockpiles. Using the slope map makes it easier to see the limit of the stockpiles and hence obtain a more accurate measurement of its volume.

9.1.5. 3D Model

They can also display all locations within all organizations by clicking on all clients.
