# What is Volumetric Analysis? Volumetric analysis is a process used to calculate the volume of an object or space. It is commonly used in a variety of industries, including construction, mining, and geology, to determine the amount of materials or resources in a given area.

We have provided volumetric analysis for a variety of schemes from surveying individual stockpiles to full quarries and earthwork schemes. Using a variety of traditional and aerial survey methods, we are able to survey the object in question and determine there areas and volumes using a dedicated software package.

Volumetric analysis can be performed using a variety of methods, including:

1. Mathematical calculation: The volume of an object or space can be calculated using mathematical formulas, such as the formulas for the volume of common geometric shapes like cylinders, cones, and spheres.
2. Surveying: The volume of an object or space can be calculated by surveying the area and determining its dimensions, and then using these dimensions to calculate the volume using mathematical formulas.
3. Laser scanning and 3D modelling: The volume of an object or space can be calculated using laser scanning and 3D modelling technologies, which provide highly accurate and detailed data about the dimensions and geometry of the object or space.

Volumetric analysis is important for a variety of purposes, including determining the amount of materials or resources in a given area, estimating the cost of construction or mining projects, and tracking changes in the volume of an object or space over time. Volumetric analysis is a critical component of many environmental assessments, as it provides information about the amount of resources that are being extracted from a given area, and helps to inform decisions about land use and management.
