uGPS Rapid MapperTM is your accurate, easy-to-use and reliable solution for underground mine mapping


The uGPS Rapid Mapper™ was purpose-built for underground mines, and its ease-of-use and rugged construction makes it ideal for demanding mining environments. Running on a single cable (power), uGPS Rapid Mapper™ can perform rapid open-loop scans to collect kilometres of point cloud data in as long as it takes to drive the tunnel. The data can also be easily geo-referenced to mine coordinates for closed-loop scans, making it the perfect technology for balancing accuracy with speed.

This balance, and the fact that it doesn’t require specialized skills to operate, makes uGPS Rapid Mapper™ a convenient tool for engineers and planners to get timely feedback from underground workings. Data is easily exported using either a wireless internet connection or a USB device and then easily imported into a wide range of third-party software packages.

Applications include: the augmentation of routine shaft inspections with a uGPS Rapid Mapper™ 3D point cloud, using volume calculations to compare actuals to plan or determine whether a piece of equipment will fit through an underground opening, or reducing delays associated with non-routine survey pick-ups and as-builts.

Regardless of how you use the uGPS Rapid Mapper™, it will deliver clear, highly detailed data, enabling your mine surveyors, planners and engineers to make informed decisions, quickly and confidently. 

 At RAMJACK, we are proud to bring this ground-breaking technology to our African, European & Middle Eastern clients. Contact us today to find out more about how the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ has changed surveying technology for the better.
