GeoCloud Automation - from Project Site to Website
Wireless Data Acquisition
Wireless data acquisition moves measurements from the project site to GeoCloud servers on the internet.
Wireless Systems perform specialized measurement & control functions to operate complex systems such as automated total stations, vibration monitors, dust monitors or construction cameras.
Wireless Nodes perform simpler measurement functions, typically dedicated to a single type of sensor, and transmit their measurements to an internet gateway.
Web-Based Data Management
Central Repository for Data: Measurements from project sites are transmitted to web-based GeoCloud servers and stored in dedicated project databases.
Data Integration: The GeoCloud server can import, process, and store readings from most sensors and systems, eliminating data silos.
Consistent Calculations: The GeoCloud server processes measurements according to instructions stored with the databases, providing consistency and traceability.
Consistent Presentations: The GeoCloud server generates views, plots, and reports that are preconfigured to ensure consistent sensor selection, scales, and labels.
Human Monitored: GEO-Instruments project managers and technicians monitor project dashboards, checking that loggers and nodes are operational and that the processed measurements are within alarm thresholds.
Website Access to Data
GeoCloud project websites provide access to data and alerts wherever there is an internet connection - project sites, offices, homes, and on the road. GeoCloud websites work with ordinary browsers on smartphones, tablets, and desktops.
Continously Updated: Project websites are updated and available 24 hours a day. Everyone sees the most recent data.
Secure Access: Project websites are hosted on secure servers that are backed up daily. Authorized users have password-protected logins and controlled access to advanced features.
Graphs, Reports, and Alerts: Project websites support site-wide views, trend plots, profile plots, contour plots and more. PDF reports are generated automatically on regular schedules. Alerts are posted on project websites and sent by email or SMS to registered users. Real-time, on-site alerts are also available.
