Volume calculations on an area with uneven bounding surfaces are prone to provide poor volume estimates, and as a result poor cost or reserve estimates. Our volume calculation tool computes the volume in reference to any selected input layer, including digital elevation models derived from satellite or drone data, or a thickness map derived from subsurface mapping.
Be on the look out for instant cost calculation in the next version of our volume tool. For example, use our next generation volume tool to calculate excavation costs and instantly know how much an excavation job will cost. Just select the area on the map that needs to be excavated and the cost per yard and our calculator will return the total cost of excavation.
