We are very pleased to announce Measurand as our new Official Technology Partner.

Measurand designs and manufactures ShapeArrayTM, which is used to monitor deformation of soil and structures like dams, tunnels, walls, and buildings.

Monitoring 3D shape has been Measurand’s core purpose since it was founded in 1993. Starting with patented fibre optic bend and twist sensors. In 2006, Measurand released the first ShapeArray, signalling the move from measuring the human body to measuring the earth. Now Measurand is a leader in developing and manufacturing instrumentation for geotechnical deformation monitoring. Measurand’s unique technology, developed over 25 years, makes ShapeArray the only patented geotechnical monitoring instrument of its kind.

With this partnership, we aim to bring improved integration for direct ShapeArray data import into VDV with built-in data conversion.

“VDV has supported Measurand’s open data export policy to third party data delivery and viewing software since 2014. This partnership means we’re working to serve our mutual clients with deeper integration between ShapeArray’s innovative deformation monitoring and VDV’s powerful visualization platform.”

Christiane Levesque, Manager of Research, Measurand

It has been a privilege to watch the evolution of Measurand in our industry from their very early days. ShapeArray has become a standard in monitoring projects worldwide, and VDV has supported the ShapeArray data output from the very beginning. We look forward to continuing to optimize how our customers work with their ShapeArray’s in VDV.”
