Site & Slope Monitoring: The Difference Between MonitorIQ® Desktop & MonitorIQ® Enterprise
Within the geotechnical community there are a plethora of software in the market for site monitoring, whether it’s a mining site, tailings dam, or natural landscape hazard. A common tool used industry-wide the GroundProbe Slope Stability Radars (SSR) which can monitor slope instability risk to personnel and equipment in harsh rock environments, among other applications. These are widely adopted across monitoring for a range of purposes including full-coverage, tactical targeted area, fast broad-area, long-range, long-term, dams and tailings, convergence, and reactive monitoring. This ensures mines remain safe, behavioural trends are mapped and better informs decision-making.
While this type of monitoring software is effective in providing accurate 3D visualisations of the radar data from a mine site, they are not always able to aggregate data across the mine in the one place to analyse datapoints from a holistic perspective. This is where the industry leading MonitorIQ® Desktop software can assist.
What is MonitorIQ® Desktop?
This advanced data aggregation software was developed by geotechnical engineers, particularly for mining applications. The software can sync the data of multiple GroundProbe sensors across a mine and offers the same functionality, features, and tools of other SSR-Viewers. However, it also includes three patented visualisations within the tool that differ from other viewing software including Plan View, Front View and DTM view. These can help in monitoring a mining site from new vantage points.
The MonitorIQ® Desktop software can also merge current and historical data together, regardless of sensor relocations to assist in analysing trends over time. This can create a larger data pool for a more accurate analysis and provides a history of the site’s stability over time to avoid hazardous situations.
Users can easily also set triggers and alarms across GroundProbe sensors through the MonitorIQ® Desktop software, which can notify decision-makers on which sectors of the mining site may need further investigation.
What is MonitorIQ® Enterprise?
As a first in geotechnical software history, MonitorIQ® Enterprise can integrate with SSR viewing suites and other third-party sensors, eliminating the need to continually switch between platforms. This includes on-site sensors GPS, radar, laser, satellite in SAR, total stations, piezometers and more.
MonitorIQ® Enterprise provides standardised and aggregated data of your mining site for geotechnical engineers to accelerate decision making in real-time. The advanced software also offers visualisations of mine-wide information to provide a holistic view of geotechnical risk across mine sites. With comparative results including charting, heatmapping, automated reporting, custom dashboards to assist in identifying trends.
This is particularly useful for larger-scale mining sites and projects that use a range of different mining tools and technologies to monitor their sites. Other paid add-on features and modules can also be included into the Enterprise software following an accurate scope of site-specific requirements.
If you are a current user of MonitorIQ® Desktop or the GroundProbe SSR-Viewer®, you can easily upgrade to the MonitorIQ® Enterprise software at any time. Contact GroundProbe today to learn more.
Key Features of MonitorIQ® Desktop

What is the Difference between MonitorIQ Desktop® & MonitorIQ® Enterprise?
MonitorIQ® Desktop offers a monitoring solution comparative to SSR-Viewer® to view and analyse data exclusively from GroundProbe sensors. While MonitorIQ® Enterprise provides a larger-scale software including more advanced features such as the aggregation of third-party sensors as well as additional analysis tools.
The MonitorIQ® Desktop software systems can revolutionise slope monitoring systems and the way in which site decision-making is made. From improving the efficiency of geotechnican’s time to accelerating reporting and data analysis processes, MonitorIQ®’s innovative software can assist your business today.
