Data and functionality
Hansje Brinker tracks changes to infrastructure by analyzing large sets of satellite images over time and seeing state changes happening in the most recent ones. By tracking specific points of the object throughout the years, Hansje Brinker can determine deformation with millimeter accuracy. Applying this tool, the manager gets a complete view of current changes happening in the infrastructure.
The user gets a periodic report or access current deformation data through our web service. This can be deployed in a graphical environment. The admin can also assign user rights to other groups of users. The user can access at any time: deformation rates, gradients and history for any point. The underlying data can be downloaded for further processing in the workflow.
The Monitoring product has a graphical user interface; every measurement point has a color representing its representative rate of deformation. The user can define which variables to show: typically the historic average annual deformation rate but also acceleration in deformation. Locations that have high deformation rates are shown as red while relatively stable locations are shown as green. By clicking on the point, the user can pull up the relevant time series over the whole preceding period as well and quantify the rate of change.
