Pangea Geosystems are the market leaders in Prism Monitoring, a fixed-point monitoring solution that provides a system of tracking the movement of an area in all three axes – XYZ coordinates.
Fixed point monitoring systems are used to produce 3D directional vectors, as opposed to Radar, Lidar and InSAR which monitor surface areas only by measuring the distance from the sensor to a surface.
Pangea Geosystems can provide manual, semi-automated or fully automated prism monitoring solutions according to your specific needs and brief. As part of the prism monitoring solution, we also supply the required robotic total stations, or multi-stations, deformation monitoring software, GNSS survey control network, shelters for protecting the total stations from the elements, power sources, weather stations, communications equipment (e.g., 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz Wireless and LTE (4G)), and alarming devises/systems.
Pangea Geosystems provides a range of prisms in various shapes, sizes and quality and can assist you to determine which prisms are best suited to your specific application.
From small L-bar type monitoring prisms for civil and other short-range applications through to 64mm monitoring prisms with certified accuracy of <2" arc seconds or better, we have a range of reflectors to suit any project.
Best of all, with our bulk buying power, we pass on those savings to ensure that our customers are able to purchase the highest quality reflectors at the lowest possible price.
Prisms - Performance & Characteristics
We recently conducted a study of the technical considerations involved with making a prism selection for deformation monitoring in a mining environment to ensure the highest quality results.
We investigated the unique design aspects that influence the performance of a prism and which prism attributes best suit the conditions for mining/mining sector.

Deformation Monitoring Software
Pangea Geosystems work with Leica GeoMoS Monitor, a sophisticated, yet straightforward, automatic deformation monitoring software that is able to match the needs of any monitoring project – large, small, temporary, permanent. It is a central unit for data acquisition, processing, and alerting applications such as environmental and climate change, construction, natural resources, or energy management monitoring.
Leica GeoMoS Monitor supports multiple communication options, sensor control and scheduling and instant data storage and analysis. Automated data streams using numerous open interface standards enable simple, yet powerful sensor fusion and allow for comprehensive situation analysis. Accurate and reliable data acquisition is ensured via outlier detection, data validation, filtering, and automatic re-measurement.
Advanced mathematical computation and a combination of observations from different sensors, ensures the stability of your monitoring reference. Customisable system status and limit checks of critical observations are sent out to inform those responsible on time. Use a messaging option of your choice, such as email or SMS, to notify people of deformation changes 24/7, every day of the year.
Leica GeoMoS supports connection to any monitoring sensor or software. Flexible communication options allow seamless connection, sensor control and instant data storage and analysis. Leica GeoMoS API allows the combination of Leica GeoMoS data into your own system.
Automated data streams - using numerous open-interface standards enable simple, powerful sensor fusion.
Leica GeoMoS Monitor ensures a round-the-clock measurement cycle, with sensor scheduling and can store all important data in just one SQL database.
Geodetic, geotechnical, environmental, or any other sensor data acquisition, is accurately and reliably ensured via outlier detection, data validation, filtering and automatic remeasurement.
If the system status and the limit check of critical observations is active, responsible people are informed in a timely manner using various messaging options of your choice (email, SMS, alert).
Advanced mathematical computation and a combination of observations from different sensors, ensure the most accurate stability of your monitoring.
VISUALISATION AND REPORTING
Powerful, versatile, and highly customisable, the GeoMoS Now! service can be installed locally, or used in the cloud, allowing you to access results any time, anywhere.
Receive accurate and timely overviews on the status of projects by using a range of easy to configure graphs, images, maps, tables, and deformation scans - with no knowledge of web design necessary.
Add external links to your project or use the GeoMoS Now! API to securely include project visuals to any web page. Assign multiple viewers to a single project and distribute customised reports to any number of users.
For monitoring professionals who need to quickly understand and react to the complex demands of today’s monitoring projects, Leica GeoMoS is a solution that provides complete flexibility to their projects.
With scalable software and options and various licensing packages, the Leica GeoMoS family adapts to specific needs of any user. Suitable for continuous, periodic or campaign projects, it is a complete monitoring solution offering the highest accuracy and reliability.
