Motionary

Motionary is 3vGeomatics’ web-based data delivery platform for easy data visualization of displacement information. Motionary provides access to results stored on the cloud, as well as tools for visualizing them in a GIS-like environment. Colour-coded points and raster information are superimposed on an optical image and an elevation model of choice. These can be viewed in 2D or 3D.

Displacement DataStream is a connected InSAR monitoring service that allows for near-real-time monitoring of critical assets without the barrier of data management. Motionary is 3vG’s web-based platform built to host the DataStream and provides simple and quick access to InSAR results stored on the cloud. The online tool alleviates requirements for software installation, licence keys, hardware requirements, and allows you to manage your own users. Access to Motionary is included at no cost for all Displacement DataStream subscribers.

Inspired by GIS software, Motionary allows for the analysis of geospatial data with some key advantages:

  • Device agnostic: The only prerequisites for accessing the results are a suitable device (phone, tablet or PC) with a web browser and an internet connection. Experience a fast and responsive user interface since all computation is conducted remotely. No special setup or computing resources are required from the user.
  • Zero maintenance: No need to be concerned with installing, configuring and maintaining cumbersome GIS software. Data is stored and maintained by 3vG using enterprise security on custom built servers. Feature and data updates require no special action from the user. Updates are timed to avoid interruption and disruption to operation.
  • Client driven: The platform and feature set are designed specifically for analysing InSAR displacement results. Based on client feedback and request, the Motionary development team regularly adds tools, functionality, and ease of use improvements.
  • Seamless displacement updates: As SAR images are acquired and processed, new data is added to the Displacement DataStream and streamed to Motionary. Time series, acceleration polygons, and displacement contours are automatically updated.

Motionary’s toolset has been designed to maximize the benefit of the Displacement DataStream and all its features. At first when a user logs in, a raster heatmap is shown providing an overview of the project area. As the user zooms in, points are displayed showing the precise location of the displacement values. The toolset has been designed to manipulate and interpret vector and raster based data such as:

  • Layer visibility: Select from the Absolute, Up-Down, East-West, and each of the Line-Of-Sight (LOS) InSAR measurements. Toggle layers on and off including the heatmap, points, site labels, optical imagery, and more.
  • Threshold filtering: Discover what’s important by adjusting the visibility of displacement results above or below your set values. Catch subtle displacement, or keep an eye on rapid displacement. The scale of both raster and vector results can be adjusted for easy viewing.
  • Time period selection: Filter the time period of any point selection by setting the start and end dates.
  • Metadata and auxiliary data: Knowing what you’re getting is important. We’ve included layers to show the coverage of the analysis area, local area labels, and more.

Data Storage

All data delivered through Motionary is stored securely in the cloud, using Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS sets the global standard in data storage and infrastructure security. Motionary utilizes the AWS platform, with industry-standard best practices, to ensure the highest level of security for customer data. All data is encrypted and stored using AWS Relational Database Service (RDS) on a private subnet, within a secure Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). Databases are backed up automatically and are deployed over multiple AWS availability zones to ensure near 100% uptime.

Third-party data export via 3vG API

Our product team is dedicated to developing powerful data visualizations and tools that effectively communicate our analytical work. Through close collaboration with our clients, we develop, update, and refine our products to the specific needs of our clients. Based on each client’s needs, we can also develop custom products that address a sector-specific requirement.

Deliverables can include vector data usable in mapping software such as ArcGIS, QGIS, MapInfo or AutoCAD. Vector and raster displacement maps can be provided via secure FTP or through web mapping services (WMS) accessed through most GIS software packages. 3vG also supports integration into mining programs such as MAPTEK, Navstar/GeoExplorer, MineSight, and Canary. If your team uses another software to combine and analyze displacement results, the DataStream can be connected to those systems via our API. 3vG works with our clients to generate the products they need to easily and effectively leverage InSAR results in decision making. We have never found a platform we could not support.
