Leica Geosystems has developed a new water quality monitoring solution based on the expanded capability of its monitoring software, Leica GeoMoS.


The solution uses third-party smart sensors integrated with Leica GeoMos software to continuously collect data and transmit it to a user-configurable online dashboard for automated real-time display and analysis. It allows users to maximize control while minimizing site visits.

Leica Geosystems added water quality monitoring to its portfolio of solutions in response to growing industry demand, according to David Rutledge, U.S. director of structural monitoring for Leica Geosystems’ Monitoring Solutions business. He says sophisticated water quality monitoring is becoming increasingly important in industries such as oil and gas, agriculture, and mining.

“There is a growing awareness in North America of the importance of safeguarding our precious water supply. Our GeoMoS family of software is ideally suited to collect and display real-time water quality information,” he says.

Leica GeoMoS software is user-configurable and fully automated, allowing for complex sensor control, data collection, computation and event management. The software reads the standard data output format used by most water quality sensors, which makes it highly adaptable to water quality monitoring applications.

The water quality monitoring solution can be deployed across critical points in a natural or man-made water system to continuously measure and transmit key parameters of water quality, including pressure, pollutants, temperature and conductivity. The solution is capable of identifying in real time the introduction of contaminants in water networks.

With close to 200 years of experience pioneering solutions to measure the world, Leica Geosystems products and services help customers worldwide capture, analyze and present spatial information. Leica Geosystems is best known for its broad array of products that capture accurately, model quickly, analyze easily, and visualize and present spatial information.
