Gardens of the stones.
It is my old works with salt companies.
The task was of investigating the geometry of ore particles. I used the digital camera, which it adapted to the microscope. It consecutively a measuring standard and a series of ore particles. After this, we with the geologist carried out the classification of particles and calculated the areas and the content of different minerals. Besides the chemical analog of the content of components we see also their distribution. Cost of this devices is very low. We can use this in fields, in underground area, in the real time on the conveyor of chemical production.
After this experience i nice to ideas by David Riallant Pict'Earth blog in one second.
