An assessment of susceptibility to damage of civil infrastructures such as buildings, dams, bridges, oil platforms, and power facilities has become important issues. GPS vendor Trimble, and Condor Earth Technologies Inc. have partnered to provide real-time GPS - based systems for monitoring civil infrastructures and natural hazards. The systems are used for monitoring the structural integrity of dams, bridges, buildings, oil platforms and power facilities as well as the movement of landslides, volcanoes and other natural hazards. Condor's 3D Tracker® is a Windows NT software package that allows you to simultaneously compute 3D positions in real-time for deformation monitoring application computing millimeter position for dozens of GPS receivers deployed on large engineered structures. Also, this software can monitor natural hazards such as volcanoes, landslides, and ground subsidence.
