Movement & Deformation Monitoring

The combination of Warner Surveys’ experience and expertise with the latest survey equipment and software, from high accuracy total stations through toonline reporting, means that our clients can rely completely on our monitoring services.

Manual or Fully Automated

Advances in software and instrumentation have now enabled us to advance the traditional manual monitoring systems to fully automated 24/7 active installations, with real time data being continuously uploaded to the web.

Construction, Rail, Oil & Gas Applications

Historically, the Construction and Rail Industries have had the greatest requirement for movement monitoring, however the Oil & Gas Industry is now harnessing the potential intelligence and applications of fully understanding the consequences of stresses induced from movements outside any original design criteria.

Scaleable and Flexible Online Solutions

Amongst other manufacturers, Warner Surveys work closely with Leica. The Leica GeoMoS software provides a customiseable, highly flexible, automatic deformation monitoring system that is able to combine geodetic, geotechnical and meteorological sensors to match the needs of most monitoring projects irrespective of size or duration.

3D Laser Scanning

Laser Scanning is now being deployed as an integral part of many Industrial and Construction monitoring systems. Combined with the accuracy of individual point, total station monitoring, laser scanning can now show surface bulges, depressions and overall surface movement trends of large areas where individual point data is simply not enough.

Typical Applications:

  • Structural Deformation Monitoring. E.g. tunnels, bridges, high rise buildings, retained facades, etc
  • Landslide and Settlement Detection. E.g. mining, rock falls, subsidence, etc
  • Oil, Gas and Industrial Plant. E.g. vessel geometry from hot / cold changes, etc
