Resource Scanner Mechanics

I've logged about 10 hours in the Early Access so far and I've been enjoying everything about it, but I can't seem to figure out the "Resource Scanner" popup that occurs when your ship comes to a stop. It counted 5 when I entered Alcyone Station, but after mining a few crystal nodes, the number didn't change at all. How does this work, and does it give a directional indicator as to where the resources are?

    It activates as soon as you stand still and the counting up is just the increase of the sensor range. You don't really get any directional indicators, it's just that because of the increased range it can then happen that something will now show on the screen or radar what wasn't there before
