Gravel Pit Management

Planning operations is much simpler with drone imagery and terrain models.

Aggregate clients are using Civil Tracker to manage pit operations and yard inventories. First, track topsoil and overburden removal in advance of crushing. Then measure pit extraction and material yields during crushing operations. Never crush too much or too little again.

Improving Safety

Drone maps provide early detection of safety hazards. Use the map to train new workers or provide directions to truck drivers. Reduce the risk of surveying and allow your team to fly stockpiles and pits, with no risk of injury.



Gravel companies achieve early identification of issues such as groundwater ponding and erosion.

Case Study

Camrose County started using Civil Tracker in 2020. Enabling them to track all stages of their annual crushing operation and monitor inventories throughout the county.

Before switching to Civil Tracker county staff would either have to climb the stockpiles, a time-consuming and sometimes dangerous job, or outsource their drone surveys. This meant infrequent access to information.

Monitoring the pit, crusher and piles in a gravel mining operation

After switching to Civil Tracker, Camrose County was able to monitor the change of all stages of their operation. This removed any surprises and allowed them to crush the exact amount specified in the contract.

“Civil Tracker has reduced the amount of survey time required to survey the piles in our pit and increased the safety associated with these tasks. The support staff have been amazing to work with. I would highly recommend Civil Tracker.”
