Canary Systems launches new MLWeb3 software platform

Canary Systems Inc., a leader in web-based data visualisation and geotechnical monitoring solutions, has announced the release of its MLWeb3 software platform, including a host of updated features and enhancements that, it says, will redefine how companies harness the power of data collection, integration and analysis.

MLSuite® is, according to Canary, a vendor-independent platform able to seamlessly connect all the links of a monitoring project (instrumentation, dataloggers, third-party databases and telemetry) in a single interface. This approach opens powerful possibilities for cross-referencing any type of data, for alarming and notifications based on real-world complexity, for forecasting and recognising trends, as well as for effective reporting and risk management.

With the release of MLWeb3, users can expect a transformative experience, thanks to a suite of improvements that elevate the capabilities of the platform, the company says.

New GIS, 3D and charting engine
MLWeb3 offers a powerful GIS and 3D engine, providing users with spatial data visualisation capabilities, Canary says. Users are able to explore data like never before, with immersive 3D visualisations and enhanced geographical insights. In addition, the MLWeb3 charting engine has been completely reimagined, offering users more dynamic and interactive charting options. This allows users to present data in compelling, informative ways to make informed decisions.

Intuitive user experience: the “smart” user interface
MLWeb3 introduces a “smart” user interface that adapts to user needs, streamlining workflows and making data analysis more intuitive and efficient.

Powerful global search
MLWeb3, Canary says, now features a powerful global search function that helps users quickly locate and access the data they need, saving time and boosting productivity.

Redesigned data storage & performance improvements
MLWeb3’s data storage has been redesigned for enhanced efficiency and security, ensuring valuable data is in safe hands. Furthermore, substantial performance enhancements have been made to ensure that MLWeb3 operates seamlessly even with large datasets, enabling faster data analysis.

Deep linking & browser tab support
With deep linking and browser tabs support, users can easily navigate between different views and data sets, simplifying the data exploration process, Canary says.

Canary Systems’ MultiLogger Suite software receives an update

Canary Systems says it has released a major update to its MultiLogger® Suite software platform for automated and manual data acquisition.

The platform allows collection, management, display, and analysis of data for a variety of project types – “be it geotechnical, structural, meteorological, environmental, construction, or other; be it automated or manually collected; be it short-term or long-term”, Canary said.

It is a vendor-independent platform that connects all the links of a monitoring project (instrumentation, dataloggers, third party databases, and telemetry) in a single platform, according to the company.

“In short, MLSuite is capable of presenting, at a glance, the status of a given project as a whole, in a single integrated view, in your browser (MLWeb), in 2D and 3D, with full GIS-enabled mapping support and flexible charting options.”

The latest update has seen a number of changes to the platform, according to Canary.

“For the first time ever, it is possible to collect, view, and analyse data from a multitude of sources – including geotechnical instrumentation as well as radar and InSar point clouds – in a real-time, web-based 3D platform,” the company said.

Within this update there are several new features. MLWeb®’s 3D visualisation engine, for instance, allows for spatial data analysis of any sensor data, and display of 3D point clouds and surfaces right into a client’s browser, Canary said. “Draw cross-sections on the fly; view surface and subsurface data from any angle; and use spatial filters to query underlying sensor and point data for charting and further analysis or alarming,” the company added.

The software platform’s integrated GIS component is capable of ingesting dozens of GIS format files and live map servers without any additional tools, according to Canary. It also supports automatic conversions and reprojections on the go between local, global and projected coordinate systems for data and layers. “Additional dynamic options such as contours, heatmaps and vectors based on data values help visualise trends right on the map,” the company added.

MLSuite’s Data Classing engine allows clients to set up templates that define patterns, properties, calculations, locations and relationships for their data, according to Canary. “Once classed, watch in awe how a newly installed instrument (or hundreds of them) automatically appears in the database with all charts and functions created for you,” the company said.

The advanced calculation engine provides a set of tools beyond just raw data, according to Canary. “Statistical functions, trendline forecasting, if-conditionals, runtime parameters, conversions, corrections, correlations and many other operations can be created and customised to suit each project’s specific needs.”

MLSuite’s alarming engine allows for setting threshold and rate-of-change alarms quickly, Canary said. Clients define the source and how many occurrences are needed to trigger an alarm, and then select from a range of on-alarm/off-alarm actions including email and text.

“MLSuite includes MultiLogger, an application designed to communicate, programme, and collect from many makes and models of dataloggers and sensors directly, without the need for additional software. This single point of interaction means: robust data collection without manufacturer or vendor limitations,” Canary said.
