Preliminary design of the 'Prinotopa' test site geodetic monitoring system using different sensors

During the stage of organizing the monitoring procedures to be used at the 'Prinotopa' Greek test site, a survey was made about the use of different (geodetic) sensors. The sensors under investigation were mainly the Global Positioning System, GPS, Total Stations and Robotic (motorized) Total Stations, as well as classical geodetic measurement techniques (geodetic levelling). Their adequacy was examined both according to the accuracy of each method and, also, the suitability of each method to be included into an automated alert system. As a result, report and guidelines have been prepared.
