A cloud-based near real-time data management system for geotechnical monitoring that can efficiently record, transfer, store, manage, process, analyse and evaluate monitoring data and generate easy to view and use information is presented. The database structure and manual of the system functionalities for addressing issues during data upload and processing, record handling for multisensory devices, data visualisation using common reference dates, data error correction and parametric handling of import files are presented in detail. New features that are in development include a more robust warning system and a journaling system for visual observations. The system can reliably and quickly generate alarms and information about excessive movements with respect to mining and other operations that require monitoring.
