The Prism Monitoring app provides the tools to import and evaluate prism data which is routinely used to monitor ground movements, for example, slopes in open pits, underground drives or subsidence zones associated with caving. Displacement and rate data are plotted in 3D as a vector and interpolated values on triangulations, charted over time, and summarised in tables. Data from the period of interest can be selected for individual, multiple, or predefined zones of prisms. Additional analysis options include piecewise linear fitting to assess rates of deformation and persistent quality tags for excluding erroneous data.
