We live in a dynamic world. Buildings and dams settle, bridges flex and vibrate, rock masses shift, mud slides, glaciers flow and volcanoes erupt. Whether by human activity such as mining and construction or by natural processes such as climate change and erosion, the world in which we live is continually changing.
Engineering companies and contractors face increased challenges monitoring this change. They are being charged with – and being held liable for – the condition of the structures they create and maintain. In order to surmount these challenges, engineers need to be able to measure structural movements to millimetre-level accuracy. For equipment to manage and monitor these structures, engineers rely on Leica Geosystems and the Leica Nova TM50 Monitoring Station: because every half second counts!
