3DM Analyst is the most powerful terrestrial photogrammetric package on the market.
BMA Coal, Goonyella Trial Report
... the ADAM Technology software is more accurate, faster, more flexible, easier to use, more robust and more rapidly developing, provides better quality models, has better software support and requires less training.
Wayne Budarick, Chief Surveyor, Griffin Coal
I have used 3DM Analyst where no other technology was able to provide a solution.
BMA Coal, Goonyella Trial Report
Based on technical considerations of the trial results, ADAM Technology's 3DM Analyst plus CalibCam softwares provide the best solutions for BMA's highwall mapping.
Dr. Jon Osborn, University of Tasmania
I normally don't budget for ongoing support — instead, I do 'catch-up' purchases every two or three years. However, the quality of support we've had from ADAM Technology over the last 12 months has been really excellent, and so in this case I'm going to make an exception!
Dr. Caradoc Peters, University of Plymouth
After using free software and testing other packages like Photoscan and Photomodeler 3DM Analyst is in a different league in terms of camera calibration, flexibility of application, meshing capabilities and provenancing of work flow.
Dr. Caradoc Peters, University of Plymouth
It is a joy to use and exciting to be able to say we are the first university and department in the UK to have it.
Mark Lander, Carto Sur C.A.
After exhaustive testing of 3DM Analyst Mine Mapping Suite for building DTMs of coal mines in western Venezuela, we are convinced that the software provides reliable and accurate results in a fraction of the time required by traditional photogrammetry.
Mark Lander, Carto Sur C.A.
We believe this solution offers the same or better precision than aerial LIDAR and at much lower cost.
Mark Lander, Carto Sur C.A.
The system is an eminently practical solution for surveying mines in developing countries requiring nothing more complicated in the field than a quality digital camera and GPS receivers.
Greg Little, Thiess Indonesia
I had never done anything like this before and approached ADAM Technology for their advice on the best settings to use. I received more assistance than I could have expected, I was very impressed with the support.

In-house and onsite training are now available once again in Western Australia; however travel restrictions and quarantine requirements mean that they are only available to customers already within Western Australia. Online training remains available, as is phone and email support.
In light of recent developments with COVID-19 and the impending shutdown of non-essential services across the country, ADAM Technology will not be conducting in-house or onsite training from 23rd March until 30th April 2020, at which point the situation will be reviewed again.
Online training is still available, as is phone and email support. ADAM staff are all able to successfully work from home so even during a total shutdown ADAM will still be able to continue operating.
We appreciate your understanding in this unprecedented situation.

Added a video to our YouTube channel and an accompanying blog post on the use of UAVs with 3DM Analyst Mine Mapping Suite, featuring video footage taken from a UAV and the entire process of transforming the captured images into DTMs.
iTnews has published the first of three articles on the use of UAVs at mine sites in Australia, featuring many images of our aircraft in operation as well as some images of the results.
HELImetrex, one of ADAM Technology's customers, is also quoted heavily.
The minesite featured in some of the images was originally using a laser scanner but has now been using UAVs for End-of-Month Crushed Ore Stockpile surveys instead for the last two years. Following the success of the UAV they have expanded its use from a single eight-minute flight over the COS once per month to 11 missions every month covering in excess of 8 km2 capturing pit walls, ROMs, the leach drain, block cave subsidence zone, and the COS.
Prior to taking delivery of the UAV the site conducted a benchmark trial, doing a direct comparison with the laser scanner. This was complicated by the fact that the laser scanner took three hours to scan the stockpiles while the UAV images were captured in the space of three minutes, so some differences would be expected purely because of the movement of material during that time. In spite of that the results were within 0.3% of each other, and well within their acceptance criteria.
The June edition of Geoinformatics has an article on 3DM Analyst by Adam Spring that includes the following quote:
