A monitoring installation lets you detect displacement or movement in natural and manmade structures. It provides the data you need to understand the speed, direction and magnitude of any motion. The software is the core of your monitoring project. It controls the measurements, manages and analyzes the data, and provides decision support.


Getting started is easy with scalable monitoring solutions from Trimble. Trimble 4D Control provides analysis and management tools to help you start small and grow. As your expertise in monitoring increases, you can easily expand from postprocessed deformation monitoring campaigns all the way to real-time systems that manage your projects and alert the operator of significant motion events.


Software Components

The Trimble 4D Control software provides different components for different monitoring requirements. Each component offers a number of functions for specific monitoring operations such as instrument control, data collection and data processing.


The web front-end of Trimble 4D Control offers comprehensive tools for data visualization, data analysis, event logging and alarming. It is optimized for fast response and live data visualization in map and custom views. It contains simple, fast charting facilities and color coded scatter plots for quick data analysis as well as high-level analysis tools for detailed inspections.
