Deformation Graphics

Axis3D Deformation Graphics 3D

PC-software to generate 3D graphics from monitoring results

deformation graphics Customized data management: Individual data structure design, according to project requirements.

Comprehensive graphics: Quick and easy interpretation of results by the project engineer.

Efficient plot generation: Just a few mouse clicks to import current data into graphics and generate plots .


Data Management


interfaces User defined ASCII and CSV interfaces are available to import/export monitoring data such as coordinates, distances, forces, and angles from any data source. Additional parameters such as precipitation , temperature, water level, or construction phase can also be imported. Interfaces for standard formats (e.g. GSI, RMGeo) are pre-defined.
data management Users can manage large volumes of data individually and by project. Distances, forces, and angles of various geotechnical sensors; deformation point coordinates; and additional, user defined parameters are stored by epoch. The clear data structure gives a quick overview.
graphics A multitude of application-oriented visualization options in 2D and 3D facilitate the interpretation of extensive data sets. The generation of graphics is fast and straightforward, and they are easy to maintain. Decisions are based on reliable information and can be made quickly and confidently.
