Background
Exploration of oil sands generates a large volume of waste material that is stored in Tailing Storage Facilities (TSF). Understanding these facilities is important as part of tailings stewardship and maintenance. Such assessments are often undertaken using LiDAR, drone and also ground survey however satellite datasets are becoming an increasingly popular survey tool here owing to their ability to provide wide area, regular, low cost coverage to complement and focus the traditional techniques thus reducing time and risk required to survey in often difficult to access or dangerous terrain.
