 Central aim of organisation
The GEODATA group is an innovative supplier of integrated, IT-based solutions and services in tunnel surveying, geotechnical and structural monitoring

 Briefly describe your organisation
Since its foundation in 1987, the company develops and builds own software, geotechnical instruments and automatic monitoring systems. GEODATA owns special equipment for requirements like gyro measurements, noise and vibration monitoring. EUPALINOS is a powerful software package for all surveying and monitoring tasks related with underground works. Together with the well proven tunnel information and alarm system KRONOS even the largest construction projects can rely on latest state-of-the-art technology to enable safe and economic tunnel construction.

 RTD Experience
Geodata has participated as partner, work package leader and sub-project leader in several European Research Projects as for example:
OASYS (FP5, 2003-2006)
TUNCONSTRUCT (FP6, 2005 - 2009, www.tunconstruct.org)

Our company coordinated the EUREKA-EUROSTARS project EMSAT (2010 - 2013).

We further have carried out numerous nationally funded research projects within the FFG-Basisprogramm, Feasibility Studies, Bridge, AWS-Protrans etc. and are an industry partner of two COMET competence centers (Vrvis, AlpS).

In our research projects we successfully cooperate with company partners, research institutes and universities.
