Accurate deformation monitoring from Leica Geosystems
First publishedin World Highways
Leica Geosystems is now offering a sophisticated tool that allows engineers to measure deformation accurately. The Leica GeoMoS Now! Survey Edition is a service for monitoring and managing 3D deformation of points of potentially unstable areas for surveying projects. It has a streamlined workflow and can deliver monitoring reports of man-made structures or natural dangers to smart devices. Surveyors can use this to upload coordinates, process and visualise deformations, allowing other users to access results from any smart device. This cloud-enabled solution offers a platform for existing and previous survey field campaign data.
In combination with the new software, Leica Geosystems has also released the new TPS Monitoring App for total stations and MultiStations using Leica Captivate and SmartWorx software. This app simplifies manual deformation monitoring by allowing total stations or MultiStations to store previous job settings and remember them for future campaigns. This data can then be sent via the cloud to designated specialists, who can access the information on smart devices as graphs and reports.
