Abstract

Mine dump stability depends on the correct placement of fundamental units – i.e., spoil piles, based on their geological and geotechnical characteristics. In-field characterization of individual piles is strenuous. To this end, image-based characterization of spoil piles using remote data obtained through unpiloted aerial system is a potential complementary solution. Several high-level image processing techniques such as object-based classification and feature extraction, inherently rely on effective segmentation. However, studies on segmentation algorithms for spoil pile delineation are lacking. This study provides insight on colour-based and morphology-based segmentation approaches to progress avenues for object-based analysis for spoil characterization in the mine environment.
