Multiscale observation concept

Geodesy offers a variety of tools capable of being used for instrumenting a slope for purposes of monitoring its stability. The tools can be employed at various stages of the monitoring process, called multi scale observation process.
During the initial stages where bigger regions are to be monitored GPS, InSAR, and Airbornelaser scanning may be used. GPS, Total stations and Terrestrial laser scanning become useful at an intermediary stage for smaller zones. The ultimate monitoring phase would require automatic, continuous, and frequent measurement tools, where continuous GPS and motorized total stations may be employed.
