GeoShack’s suite of Landfill GPS grade control and density management products and services give every landfill the opportunity to implement cutting-edge technology to improve operations and save time, resources, manpower and money.
GeoShack’s own DensityMAX system applies cutting-edge technology to ensure tight grade control for each lift of a landfill. With GeoShack’s products and services, operators are able to construct waste lifts on-grade the first time, every time.
WHY IS GRADE CONTROL IMPORTANT?
Because poor grade control leads to:
- Wasted Airspace
- Mismanagement of Resources
- Re-grading of Waste Mass and Cover
- Heightened Erosion Potential
- Increased Likelihood of Leachate Springs
Without proper grade control, landfill waste lift development is little more than guesswork, which leads to poor work, which must be re-worked, all of which is wasted work.
GeoShack Landfill will help you avoid all of that by doing smart work to get it right the first time.
Designed for Landfill Compactors
DensityMAX is a wireless enhanced GPS system that combines the reliability of Topcon GPS Machine Control Systems with unique Topcon Software to maximize your landfill density.
Maximize Usable Airspace
Increase Working Face Density
Improve Efficiency by Avoiding Unnecessary Compaction Passes
Control Waste Placement Grades and Slopes
Real Time Density Reporting

IP-S3 mobile mapping system
The IP-S3 mobile mapping system offers high density, high precision, point clouds combined with high resolution panoramas from a system that is smaller, lighter and easier to handle.
IP-S3’s positioning system is an integration of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), GNSS receiver (GPS and GLONASS) and a vehicle odometer. It provides precise positioning and attitude in a dynamic environment.
The rotating LiDAR sensor captures the environment with a rate of 700,000 pulses per second. During each rotation, the 32 internal lasers cover the full 360 degrees around the system, each from a slightly different viewing angle. This minimizes gaps in the point cloud which arise from obstacles or dead-angles and removes the need to install multiple scanners.
IP-S3’s six-lens digital camera system provides 360 degree high resolution spherical images that allow for easy feature recognition.
Mobile Master Office software handles all post processing trajectories and geo-referencing scans and images.
- Integrated turnkey solution
- Ultra-compact design
- Multiple lasers minimize scanning shades
- Unparalleled ease of use
- Factory calibrated
- Full integration of cloud and images
