Using Terrestrial 3D Laser Scanning and Optical Methods to Determine Orientations of Discontinuities at a Granite Quarry
The main objective of this research is to estimate the orientations of discontinuities in the Red Granite Quarry using point clouds and optical images obtained with a three-dimensional terrestrial scanner. To calculate the orientation of facets, point cloud data were used. To estimate trace orientations, optical images acquired using the inbuilt optical camera of the scanner, were used. Results of the study are presented in this paper.
