Automated deformation monitoring

GeoLidar is an automated solution for landslide and subsidence monitoring. 

It uses lidar combined with artificial intelligence to reveal ground movements to millimetre-scale precision. A state-of-the art technology, GeoLidar monitors ground movements in real time while its software removes “noise” data from the scene. 

This enables GeoLidar’s effective use on busy highways or roads, even as traffic continues. 

Monitoring landslides in real time


Remove people from potential landslide zones or high-traffic areas


Detect millimetre-scale deformation and subsidence


Use in all-weather settings, operational from -20oC to 45oC

Remote access:

Visualise data from remote sites on any device.

Lidar and AI combined for automatic ground monitoring 

GeoLidar uses high-speed lidar scanning to create a 3D map of the area. Subsidence is measured every 15 minutes but the timing can be adjusted as required.  

The AI algorithms screen out noise, including traffic and pedestrians, to provide a clear view of the ground surface. 

Camera monitoring
Analyse data easily using the intuitive software interface. Visualisations and heatmaps provide an accurate picture of the site, with areas of focus highlighted.
tough hardware

Made tough for 24/7 monitoring in all conditions. In-built heaters to allow use in sub-zero temperatures, and can withstand heat up to 45°C. 

strong connectivity

In-build WiFi and 4 G sends data instanstly to the secure cloud.

Subsidence and Deformation Software

GeoLidar software enables the visualisation of data into an intuitive 3D map of the area. An adjustable heatmap highlights changes in movement over time, making it easy to analyse land subsidence at a glance.  

Geotechnical engineers can calculate average movement over time quickly, allowing for improved risk assessments. 

Based in the cloud, Geobotica software can be accessed from any device at all time.
